Minecraft’s Better Together update is coming to Nintendo Switch in June, supports cross-play with Xbox One, PC, and mobile

Nintendo has just announced that Minecraft’s Better Together update is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer. Along with the update will be support for cross-platform play between Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.

The Better Together update released last September and was a huge step toward unifying Minecraft across platforms, helping keep each version up to date with the game’s latest features. Players can also access the Marketplace and Realms with the Better Together update. Not only that, but thanks to the Bedrock Engine it supports infinite worlds for you to explore.

Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg said on Twitter, “Excited to see @Minecraft coming to #NintendoSwitch on June 21st another bridge built to enable cross-play between Switch, Xbox, PC, and Mobile! #BetterTogether.”

If you already own a copy of Minecraft on Nintendo Switch, you’ll receive this update for free when it releases on June 21. If not, you’ll need to purchase the game for $29.99. Xbox Live achievements will be enabled on the Nintendo Switch version.
