Here’s what we learned in the new Ask Mojang segment, which focused on the mobs of Minecraft.

The latest Ask Mojang segment saw Minecraft developers answer a few different questions, some more humorous, but others touching on real things that fans want to see, and could eventually see.
These are the most interesting questions and answers given by the team at Mojang this time around.

We see this somewhat already at the Bastion Remnants in The Nether, where Piglins stack houses together to make small communities, the team added though that they would love to see more of this idea.
