Late last year, Microsoft announced that Minecraft would be getting an update that would enable cross-platform support. It has been quite a while since the update was announced, but the good news is that gamers won’t have to wait much longer for the update to arrive, at least for the Nintendo Switch.
According to a post on the Xbox website, Microsoft has announced that the Bedrock version for Minecraft will be launching on the 21st of June. For those who already own the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, the update will be yours for free, but for those who have yet to get their hands on the game, the Bedrock version will be available digitally and in physical retail version as well.
Microsoft writes, “Minecraft will be the first game on Nintendo Switch to feature cross-play support across Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, Android devices, iOS phones and tablets, and VR platforms will all be able to play together for the first time ever. Whether they’re working together to build the home of their dreams or standing shoulder-to-shoulder as they enter the End to take down the Enderdragon, there will always be something for friends to do together, regardless of platform.”
As Microsoft has pointed out, cross-platform will only be available between the Switch, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android, and VR platforms.
