More developers are hopping on the cross-play train. Microsoft first announced that Minecraft would receive cross-play functionality across every version of the game, and now two more developers are opening up that feature for their games.
VooFoo Studios has announced that Mantis Burn Racing, a top-down arcade racer, is to receive cross-play support between the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam versions of the game (via NintendoEverything). The game already runs at 60FPS on Xbox One and will run at 60FPS on Nintendo Switch as well.
In addition, an upcoming game from developer Black Riddles is expected to support cross-play. The company announced that this cel-shaded third-person shooter will offer cross-play functionality between Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game is currently being funded through the crowdfunding website Fig and costs $15. The developers are close to hitting their goal of $30,000.
It’s wonderful seeing more games take advantage of cross-play. While Sony has yet to jump on board, and may never, those playing on Microsoft’s and Nintendo’s systems can get in on the action.
