Minecraft Crossplay And Achievments Coming To Nintendo Switch

The Bedrock Update will be released on Nintendo Switch on June 21. The new update will unify Xbox, PC and Pocket Editions into one shared platform, and it's going live next month. Minecraft Marketplace was introduced to other versions of the game a year ago, and includes "cool community creations" like skins, textures packs, and maps.

Players will also gain access to mini-games and game modes through online community-run servers.


People who already own "Minecraft: Switch Edition" will get the Bedrock update for free when it's released. Mojang is even launching a new physical edition in June to celebrate the launch of the new and improved blocky experience. Though it should be noted that after this update, the name of the game available for purchase on the Switch eShop will simply be Minecraft. Will a platform-unified version be enough to bring you back into the fold?

Nintendo has just announced that Minecraft's Better Together update is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer. "We've worked closely with Nintendo to bring an incredible experience to the Nintendo Switch system's dynamic and rapidly-growing ecosystem and couldn't be more excited to deliver what Minecraft players have been asking for". This version will include the Mario mash-up pack, the Better Together Update, in addition to Bedrock. "We've worked closely with Nintendo to bring an incredible experience to the Nintendo Switch system's dynamic and rapidly-growing ecosystem and couldn't be more excited to deliver what Minecraft players have been asking for", said the head of Xbox Phil Spencer.
