Nintendo Switch to get Minecraft Bedrock update June 21

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

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. The day for the update's release on Nintendo Switch is fast approaching.

Minecraft is one of the best-selling video games of all time, selling more than 144 million worldwide across all platforms, including Nintendo Switch.

At the end of last week, Microsoft announced that the next update for Minecraft, Update Aquatic, would be the final update to come to non-Bedrock versions of the block building game.

And speaking of buying things, you'll be able to pick up a physical version of the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition when it launches this June for $29.99. And just like on the other platforms, Minecraft on Nintendo Switch will now support achievements and Gamerscore, reflecting players' activities and experiences within the game.

Nintendo has released their plans for Nintendo Switch Online, along with a list of 20 NES titles to play once the service is available in September.

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime issued the following statement about Minecraft's Bedrock upgrade.

This version of Minecraft for Switch contains all previously released content including the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack exclusive to Nintendo and all DLC.

The downside to the new service is that some games that can now be played online for free, such as Splatoon 2, will require a Switch Online membership for such play once the service launches.

The all-time best-selling game, Minecraft made its mark on Nintendo Switch as well.
