A little while back Famitsu published a Minecraft interview with a couple of the game’s key developers. Executive producers Roger Carpenter and John Thornton both talked about the title, including some Switch-specific topics.

Famitsu first started out by pointing out that Minecraft has been very successful on Switch, with the physical version having shipped over 300,000 units since June (around the time when the interview was done). Carpenter and Thorton both commented here, with the two stating:

As for what’s included, The Nightmare Before Christmas Mash-up Pack is being added. This DLC should be available on Switch as well.
