Minecraft hits the Nintendo Switch
Minecraft is coming to Nintendo’s recently launched Switch handheld gaming system. It is first rolling out on the Nintendo eShop in North America, before following in Europe, Japan and Africa.
Nintendo Switch Edition comes with fun features of other console versions of Minecraft, including multiplayer mini games, Battle and Tumble. But of course, being for the versatile Switch, this version lets you play with friends in a variety of ways: get together online for some eight-player action, eight-player local play (if everyone has a Switch) or squeeze four of you onto a couch to play split-screen in front of the TV on a lone console. Some other blighted family member hogging the TV? Flip out the Switch’s kickstand and play in tabletop mode. That supports four-player split-screen, too, with players wielding either Joy-Cons or the Pro Controller.
