Nintendo Co., Ltd. this week said the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition retail SKU will be sold June 21.
Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will include the Minecraft Bedrock Engine.
The Bedrock version contains all previously released content including the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack.
In addition, it will allow owners to connect with non-Nintendo system users from Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox One and Android mobile phones.
A new in-game store called Minecraft Marketplace will allow users to purchase community-related items using MINECOINS, a new virtual in-game currency.
Finally, Minecraft will support the Nintendo Switch Online paid membership this Sept.
Current Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition owners can download the Bedrock version at no cost post release.
