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

The kickstand, which pops up from the back of the Nintendo Switch, allows players to access Tabletop mode, where the console's screen displays the game and the user detaches the Joy-Cons.

Minecraft Bedrock Edition and award-winning 2D RPG The Banner Saga are coming to Nintendo's Switch. This will be a completely separate version of the game to download, which is free for all those that now own Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, and it will be accompanied by a new physical release as well. 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.

Minecraft's anticipated Bedrock Update for the Nintendo Switch is launching on June 21st. Minecraft Marketplace was introduced to other versions of the game a year ago, and includes "cool community creations" like skins, textures packs, and maps. Also, note that the update will be free for all players who already have Minecraft on Switch. Simple and intuitive controls ensure you'll be floating through the air and jumping from platform to platform effortlessly as you get a better feel for the game's mechanics with every play session.


Nintendo has shared more details on the service, which is due to launch in September, including the classic games that will be available on-demand on the service.

With Minecraft on Nintendo Switch, players can take the newest version of the massively popular game wherever they go. It costs $29.99 and includes all previously released downloadable content, including the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack.

We've had a lot of requests to bring The Fall to the Nintendo Switch; it's a great fit for the system.
