Minecraft Crossplay And Achievments Coming To Nintendo Switch

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

A physical retail copy of the Bedrock version of Minecraft: Nintendo Switch will also launch on the same day in stores. Minecraft is one of the best selling games of all time sitting at more than 144 million units sold worldwide across all platforms, including the Switch.

The problem last week was that, while we knew Switch was eventually getting the Bedrock version of Minecraft, we did not know when.

This update will allow cross-platform play with Xbox One, PC, iOS and Android version of Minecraft excluding PS4 because it doesn't have the update yet.

Bedrock also brings a new in-game store called the Minecraft Marketplace, which lets players buy community-created content like skins and texture packs using a new currency called Minecoins. In addition, Minecraft will support the Nintendo Switch Online paid membership when it launches in September, as well as Xbox Live achievements and Gamerscore.

Microsoft has announced that the Minecraft Bedrock update, also known as Better Together, will finally be available on Nintendo Switch on June 21st which will allow cross-platform play. Visit Nintendo.com or Nintendo eShop for details.

Did you ever pick up Minecraft for a Nintendo platform? The new version of Minecraft is an entirely separate game, so those owning Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will be given the new version of the game for free.

One additional note is that, while multiplayer on Switch is now free, the Switch Online paid subscriptions will be coming in September and Minecraft will be caught up by this, needing an active subscription to head online.
