Mojang’s phenomenally popular Minecraft has made its way to Nintendo Switch today, now available in Europe and Japan following its North American launch yesterday. The videogame is available to download from the Nintendo eShop, with a retail edition also expected to arrive in the near future.
Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition sets itself apart from other versions of the videogame by including a number of Nintendo-exclusive additions. The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack, previously available to purchase separately on the Nintendo Wii U, is included as standard in Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition. This includes 40 different Super Mario themed skins and entire preconstructed worlds from the franchise.
Furthermore, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition is a rendition of the original Minecraft videogame opposed to the ‘Pocket Edition’, meaning that it is the first version on a portable gaming platform to bring the full experience on-the-go.
Available to download now, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition allows up to eight players to play online within the same world, and up to four on a single Nintendo Switch system.
