The Tutorial is a world that introduces the player to the basic mechanics of Minecraft. Available only in the Legacy Console Edition, it allows newcomers to familiarize themselves with the game, primarily with the controls and the crafting system. The world and presentation differ depending on the version of the game it was created in; however, the basic tutorial mechanics remain the same. All versions begin with the player in a small, enclosed area where building, crafting, mining, and survival mechanics are introduced. The tutorial world contains twelve hidden chests with a music disc that the player can search for.
When a player joins the tutorial world, they are initially spawned into a small forest area with an incomplete miner's shelter. This basic tutorial area is enclosed by a natural wall. The player cannot leave this area until they have completed or skipped the basic tutorial, which teaches them aspects of the game including controls, menus, crafting, smelting, and building. In early iterations of the tutorial, players could learn about basic redstone contraptions, fishing, and boats (TU1-TU11). This was changed in later updates (TU12+), as the basic tutorial area was simplified.
Once the player leaves the basic tutorial area, they can explore the rest of the tutorial world
From TU5 onward, twelve music discs were hidden throughout the tutorial world. Players could explore the tutorial world to find them all. They were often hidden in various manmade structures, such as the Minecraft logo.
From TU7 onward, the immediate area outside of the tutorial world featured sub-tutorials for features such as enchanting and brewing. As new features were added with updates, respective tutorial areas were added as well.
Tutorial worlds slowly became bigger and better. While early tutorial worlds only featured tutorials for basic features and a few builds, later tutorials included a swath of manmade structures for the player to explore, often resembling structures in real life.

In the TU69 tutorial world, the world of the old TU46 tutorial world can be located south of the new spawn. The orientation in which the old spawn was sunken and aligned is a reference to the then Aquatic Update.
the TU12-14 tutorial world castle is located in the north west of TU31 tutorial world spawn.
in the south west corner of the TU19 tutorial world Stampylonghead’s House can be found along with a music disc
