The Legacy Console Edition tutorial is a short walk through of Minecraft's basic mechanics. It allows newcomers to familiarize themselves with the game, primarily with the Controls and the crafting system. Found only in Legacy Console Edition, the tutorial takes place in a flat area, with trees in small clusters around the side. It will not let the player leave the enclosed area until finishing or canceling the tutorial, though the player may do whatever they want within the enclosed area. Around the rest of the world there are approximately 12 hidden chests containing items and a music disc that the player can search for.

Concepts covered[edit]

The tutorial walks the player through:

Other tutorials for items such as beds, Nether portals, boats, pistons, and fishing rods will pop up, but are not part of the main tutorial.

Tutorial area[edit]

This section needs updating.
Some of the information no longer applies to the latest version.

  • The tutorial area was a flat plain with sparsely growing grass and flowers. There was a lake, with a chest containing 17 fishing rods next to it. There was also a river with a chest next to it, with 9 boats in it.
  • The Aquatic tutorial world has a very incomplete bridge over water that leads to a path to many tutorials. And if the player looks behind them at the start, they will find a closed off area that used to be the path to get to the tutorials in the TU46 tutorial world.
    • The player won't find the old tutorial areas by mining behind it; they will just reach the end of their world (and waste time and tools). The player can find an unfortunately old and beat-up version of the TU46 tutorial areas by looking somewhere underwater in the ice biome near the stone sheep statue, and the chests there will not contain the same items as the TU46 tutorial world. Also the old beacon area is missing the beacon (Because beacons can shine through water), but the diamond block tower it used to be on is still there.
  • A pond lined with sand can be found in the field. Near this pond was a cobblestone wall with a redstone/piston demonstration area. Opposite, is an incomplete miner's shelter, which the player is tasked to complete during the tutorial. This shelter was surrounded by gravel, which has a path leading to the exit, which the player can only pass through if they have completed the tutorial. Through this exit was a village or a castle (TU7-TU11).
