Mojang, Minecraft’s developer, announced the game will be released on the console on May 11th, just two months from the Nintendo Switch’s worldwide launch. Users can also rejoice at the fact that this new edition of the game will include the Super Mario Mash-Up pack, an exclusive DLC launched last year on Minecraft: Wii U Edition.

Users who have already tried the various editions of the game on console will enjoy a familiar experience when playing the game on Nintendo Switch. Still, there are going to be differences according to Mojang. For example, the game is going to work with the different playing and viewing options offered by the Nintendo Switch with its portable screens and nicely sized Joy-Cons. The game can now be played by up to 8 users online, and 4 players can join each other in tabletop mode or in local multiplayer on a TV. The game also supports the Pro Controller and split screen mode.

The Nintendo Switch was released worldwide on March 3 and remains a great success as the current best-selling console in Japan. According to analysts, the Switch might even replace the original Wii and become Nintendo’s best-selling console ever.

Minecraft is also one of the most popular video games ever made, and it’s no wonder that in February, Mojang proudly announced that its sales reached 122 million units. Now, Minecraft is available on almost every platform there is and Mojang is working on bringing a version that will be specially customized for Chinese players.

If you’re the happy owner of a Nintendo Switch, we bet you’re eagerly waiting to play Minecraft on it. Do you think it will turn out to be as great as expected?
