Minecraft Cross-Platform Play Comes To Nintendo Switch In June

Minecraft Cross-Platform Play Between Nintendo Switch and Xbox Begins in June

Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch edition of Minecraft will be replaced by a new version built on the universal Minecraft Bedrock Engine, in June. It will fold in the Better Together update that added cross-platform play to other consoles a year ago, as well as exclusive "Super Mario"-themed content that originally appeared in the Wii U version of "Minecraft".

Minecraft will be the first game on Nintendo Switch to feature cross-play support across Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, and virtual reality platforms. Also, note that the update will be free for all players who already have Minecraft on Switch.

The way it works is somewhat unprecedented in gaming.

'Very Severe Consequences' if Iran Starts Nuclear Weapons Program
Trump made his disdain for the Obama-era Iran deal well known from the start of his campaign for president in 2015. By all objective accounts, including from top Trump officials, Iran had been complying with the agreement.

This new version of Minecraft offers players even more options to play anytime and anywhere on Nintendo Switch.

It is nearly ironic to think that it was after Microsoft acquired Minecraft and its developers that the popular voxel sandbox game exploded into more platforms and use cases. The game contains thousands of hand-crafted levels, a large amount of unlockable game content, and features both single-player and multiplayer modes. Mojang's Brand Director Lydia Winters speaks about "Minecraft" during the Microsoft xBox E3 briefing at the Galen Center on June 11, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. The control of N++'s ninja is where the gameplay really shines - as you play and your skills grow, your ninja feels more and more effortlessly badass. 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.
