Now, after a long delay, the Nintendo Swith will finally be getting a new cross-platform enabled Bedrock Edition of the game in June.

Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch edition of Minecraft will be replaced by a new version built on the universal Minecraft Bedrock Engine, in June. "We've worked closely with Nintendo to bring an fantastic experience to the Nintendo Switch system's dynamic and rapidly-growing ecosystem and couldn't be more excited to deliver what Minecraft players have been asking for". Minecraft is, perhaps, the first and so far only game that has cross-play support on Xbox One, Windows 10, Android, iOS, VR, and, soon, Nintendo Switch.

The new in-game Minecraft Marketplace will also let players download community-created content, including skins, worlds, and textures using a new virtual in-game currency, Minecoins. Also, note that the update will be free for all players who already have Minecraft on Switch. According to Nintendo: "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". Players will also gain access to new mini-games and game modes through online community-run servers.
