Minecraft's Platform-Unifying Bedrock Edition Arrives On Switch This June

Minecraft Bedrock Edition will land on Nintendo's hit console on an as-yet unspecified day this June, while the Switch version of The Banner Saga will get a 17 May release. Sony isn't getting in on the crossplay action.

Microsoft has announced that the Bedrock Update for Minecraft on the Nintendo Switch will be released on June 21, which will allow cross-platform play with the Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android versions of the game (though not PS4, as it does not yet have the update). It will fold in the Better Together update that added cross-platform play to other consoles past year, as well as exclusive "Super Mario"-themed content that originally appeared in the Wii U version of "Minecraft".

The way it works is somewhat unprecedented in gaming.

As is the case with Minecraft on any Bedrock platform, Minecraft on Nintendo Switch will now also support achievements and Gamerscore, reflecting players' activities and experiences within the game and allowing them to compare stats with friends. Players will be able to make purchases safely and securely with MINECOINs, and all purchases can be enjoyed across every platform on which the Minecraft Marketplace is available.

In other news, Minecraft Bedrock Edition Update 1.2.13 released last month and it has brought in a lot of new features, changes, bug fixes, experimental gameplay and some additional add-ons which contain resource and behavior packs. It also finally opens up the Marketplace for the Switch, increasing the number of things Switch owners can spend their money on.
