WOW! Just look at those…sheep…oh…and some sort of tower in the distance. Jens from the Mojang team tweeted this teaser village picture. He said he didn’t want to show a better picture because “it’s more fun for you to explore on your own”.
Jens also had this to say about a certain person that will be in the villages:
Haha my smithy keeps setting the whole village on fire. I need to contain that lava better…
So there you have it; there will most likely be a smithy in the villages. I’m assuming Jens might also put in more standard village NPCs like traders or farmers.
