Lunar New Year is here, and Minecraft is ready to celebrate alongside the communities around the world with a free map, and tiger-themed character items.

Available on Minecraft Marketplace for the next 12 months for free will be The Legend of Nezha map. Designed by the folks at Next Studio, the map allows Minecraft players to immerse themselves in a tale of heroes and battles, and even a fight with a Strone Queen. As for the character items, there’s a free tiger mask and a free tiger sweater. This will only be free between February 1 and February 7, however. Check it out in the video below.

Keep in mind that you’ll need the latest version of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition and access to Minecraft Marketplace. If you happen to download the map or the character items, let us know how you’re enjoying it. And, Happy Lunar New Year to all of our readers who celebrate!
