Minecraft Bedrock Edition is the cross-platform version of Minecraft which is currently available for the Xbox One, PC, and mobile. Now, this version of the game is also soon going to be released for the Nintendo Switch, and in a recent Twitch livestream, Microsoft showcased some of the improvements and features we can expect to see with this version.
The team is really “taking a lot of extra care” with the Switch version of the game and it’s easy to see that this is the case with some significant improvements to the game. For one, the game runs at a steady 60 fps in both docked and handheld modes. Additionally, the improved draw distance certainly makes the game a bit more detailed. Additionally, while players will need a Microsoft account to play with players on other platforms, this won’t be needed to play with other Switch owners.
This version of the game is set to release for the Switch “soon” so keep your eyes and ears open for any news about it.
