MINECON Earth has finally finished and with it came a number of updates for Minecraft fans. Whatever platform you play the creative title on, there’s something for you. Mojang also updated Nintendo Switch players on what to expect next and here’s their plans:
“We also want to update you on the Super Duper Graphics pack. While originally set for release this year, there’s a lot of work to be done still and we’re not going to be ready to launch it in 2017. We’ll be releasing Super Duper next year, and we’ll have more information for you here on Minecraft.net soon.”
“Separately, the Nintendo Switch community will still be getting the new version of Minecraft with cross-platform multiplayer, but not until 2018. Nintendo has been a great partner and we’re really excited to fully bring Switch players into the fold, however, we need to make sure we deliver the best experience possible. So the new version of Minecraft will now be coming to Nintendo Switch next year. Xbox One, PC, mobile and Nintendo Switch, all playing multiplayer Minecraft together in 2018 – I’m getting emotional just thinking about it…”
