Minecraft Nintendo Switch Getting Cross-Play on Every Platform Except PlayStation 4
May 12 2018
The newly updated Bedrock Edition will also be receiving a physical release on Switch alongside its digital counterpart. "With previously released content like the Super Mario Mash-Up included, players everywhere can experience what it's like when Minecraft meets the Mushroom Kingdom!" That's where the Better Together update comes in and soon, Nintendo Switch players will be able to join in on the fun.
With Minecraft on Nintendo Switch, players can take the newest version of the massively popular game wherever they go.
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.
It's out with the old and in with the new for Minecraft on Nintendo Switch.
Minecraft on Switch is getting cross-platform play, Nintendo Online support, and access to the Minecraft Marketplace. The game contains thousands of hand-crafted levels, a large amount of unlockable game content, and features both single-player and multiplayer modes. Microsoft introduced the Marketplace in June 2017 and invited 12 community members to become partners. "Rocket League" is another prominent one, as multiplayer servers frequently feature players from three different platforms in one match.
The launch of Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition previous year was a big moment, and now it's time to take the next step in the evolution of this beloved franchise. The Switch has been a big seller in its short time on the market, and "Minecraft" has been one of its best selling games.
