Minecraft is present virtually on any platform one can think of - consoles, smartphones, tablets, as well as PCs, not to mention that playing it in virtual reality is also possible. However, not all platforms get the same version - the mobile editions are usually slimmed down, while PC and console gamers get to enjoy larger, richer worlds.

Six years after its debut, Minecraft is now available for the latest Nintendo console. According to the article that Marsh Davies has just published on Minecraft.net, the Switch Edition of the game "lets you play with your friends in all manner 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 splitscreen in front of the TV on a lone console."

In addition to the above, four-player splitscreen is also supported when using the console in tabletop mode. Nintendo Switch players get the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack which is exclusive to Nintendo consoles, coming with a Mario-themed world ready to explore. Minecraft for Nintendo Switch comes with a few additional worlds bundled, including Halloween, Festive, Greek Mythology, and more.

By the end of this week, the Nintendo eShop should offer the game to players in North America, Europe, and Japan.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
