While the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition game is currently available on the Nintendo Switch console, this June will see the universal Minecraft Bedrock Engine (formerly Better Together update) come to the platform, along with a new physical version coming to stores on June 21st.

This Bedrock version of the game contains all the great previously released content, including the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack exclusive to Nintendo systems and all DLC, but now allows players to connect with friends on non-Nintendo systems via cross-platform play. In addition, Minecraft will support the Nintendo Switch Online paid membership when it launches in September.

A new in-game store in this version of Minecraft called the Minecraft Marketplace will let players obtain community-created content like skins, worlds and textures for their Minecraft World using MINECOINs, a new virtual in-game currency. Players will also gain access to new mini-games and game modes through online community-run servers.

Players who already own the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition game will be able to download this definitive version free of charge so they can easily upgrade and enjoy all the added features.
