'Minecraft' Bedrock Update Coming to Nintendo Switch in June


The newly updated Bedrock Edition will also be receiving a physical release on Switch alongside its digital counterpart.

The update has already made it's way onto the PC and Xbox One versions of the game.

The Better Together update for Minecraft sought to unite the many different platforms under one banner past year, but the Nintendo Switch was left out of the party to begin with - and Sony turned down their invitation, as we all know.

The way it works is somewhat unprecedented in gaming.

Minecraft on Nintendo Switch will now also support achievements and Gamerscore, as well as allow Switch players to access the Minecraft Marketplace for the first time, where they can purchase unique maps, skins and texture packs.

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

Play with friends in local multiplayer Co-op and Race (Competitive) modes with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers! Microsoft introduced the Marketplace in June 2017 and invited 12 community members to become partners.

Metanet have stripped down the classic 2D platformer to the core elements and injected some parkour acrobatics, so every moment you'll spend playing N++ will be intuitive, thrilling and pure fun. 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.

Minecraft Bedrock Edition will release June 21 for Switch and will cost $29.99 or the regional equivalent.

Play with up to four players in split screen for free, or invite hundreds of friends to a massive gameplay server or your own private Realm!
