Minecraft Bedrock update brings PC, Switch, Xbox One users together in June

Well, stop frowning right now, because the new upgrade to this definitive edition is free for all who already own the game on Switch.

Minecraft Bedrock Edition will release June 21 for Switch and will cost $29.99 or the regional equivalent.

Now, the indie developer's latest offering, N++, is making its way to the Nintendo Switch, nearly three years after its original release on Sony's PlayStation 4.

What do you think of the cross-platform update coming to Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition?

They will use MINECOINS, which is a new virtual in-game currency.

With the update, online multiplayer in "Minecraft" will be able to loop Switch players in with people from Xbox One, PC, VR and mobile phones. This includes the ability to earn Gamerscore for Xbox Live on the Switch version of Minecraft, as well as access to a community marketplace for skins.

It's up to players to take control of the suit and drag his lifeless body towards help through the game's brooding, atmospheric environments.

"This new version of Minecraft offers players even more options to play anytime and anywhere on Nintendo Switch", said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. As previously announced, the service will be required to play games online once it launches in September, but it will also provide a feature that Switch owners have been begging for ever since the console launched over a year ago.

It also contains all released content, including the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack exclusive to Nintendo systems and all DLC.

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