You might have expected that it’s the next step for Minecraft.

That’s a big thing for all fans of open world sandbox games that own the Nintendo Switch. Well, any announcement for Nintendo’s latest console is a big thing. But I’m here to announce that Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will be released on May 11th.

Up to eight players will be able to play this version of Minecraft online, with four players in local multiplayer. Although other content packs are included, the most interesting is Super Mario Mash Up. It includes 40 Super Mario‐themed skins, textures and Super Mario World itself with many iconic places to visit.
