Mojang held a special Minecraft Earth event earlier today. All sorts of big news was shared at the event, including

First, the new update for Switch is officially coming in 2018. Mojang said that it wants to ensure it can deliver players “the best experience possible.” The Super Duper Graphics pack is also pushed back to 2018 since a lot of work still needs to be done.

Here’s the full rundown on all of the news from Minecon Earth:

A new update is rolling out for Minecraft on both Switch and Wii U. It specifically adds in a free Minecon Earth 2017 Skin Pack. Minecraft went through maintenance last night, so this update should be live as of now.

One of the latest pieces of DLC for Minecraft on Switch and Wii U is a new Skin Pack featuring the Netflix show Stranger Things. We have a trailer and some footage for it below.

Minecraft: New 3DS Edition has been out digitally since the last Nintendo Direct. But as we know, Nintendo was preparing a physical version. A release date has now been announced.

The big Together Update has started to roll out across various platforms today. However, the wait for its release on Switch will be a bit longer. Right now, the plan is to have it ready this winter.

Mojang wrote in a blog post:

We’re still working on getting this new version of Minecraft ready for players on Nintendo Switch. We want to make sure that everything is ready to bring this platform onboard, and there’s a lot of work to do to make that happen. After all, no one has ever done anything like this before in the history of gaming. We expect to be ready with the free Better Together Update on Switch this winter.

The Better Together update lets players experience Minecraft together regardless of the platform you’re playing on. You can also access user-made content on Marketplace, adds new content, and more.

Below is a trailer for the Better Together update for Minecraft:

As many of you know, Mojang is currently cooking up a big “Better Together” update for Minecraft. The update will allow for some significant functionality, including cross-play so that users on platforms like Switch and Xbox One can play together. Other features are also planned with Mojang bringing the Bedrock Engine to Switch and other systems.

One interesting part of Better Together is that the Halo Mash-Up Pack will be playable on all platforms supporting the Bedrock Engine. Since Switch is included, that means the DLC will be available on Nintendo’s console.

Minecraft developer Aubrey Norris confirmed on Twitter:


This is neat news for sure, but don’t expect the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack to hit other platforms. Nintendo is keeping that one exclusive.
