Meet the new year with a fresh batch of the top 20 Minecraft seeds for January 2018.

The biggest news this month for all the fans of Minecraft Java Edition is two new mobs for Update Aquatic -- a turtle and a new flying mob, which looks like a giant bat. But all these new things will come only after the release of the next big update.

With the beginning of the new year, it's important to get the most out of the latest 1.12.2 version while we still can, so here is the fresh batch of the top 20 Minecraft seeds for January 2018.

If you didn't have the chance to check out the previous months, then here they are:
