It seems that Minecraft: Bedrock Edition has been submitted to Nintendo, according to a livestream on the official Minecraft Twitch.

The developers have stated that they’re very interested in gyroscopic gaming, but it won’t make it into the release version. As for Switch, they’ve stated that they won’t release the digital version until the physical version is ready as well.

Highlights of the Bedrock Edition include cross-platform play, infinite worlds, and better chunk loading. It also seems to include almost everything the main game offers.


The developers who are working on the Switch version of Minecraft held a recent live stream on Twitch. The team received a question about if they would add gyro-aiming to the game. The team’s response was at this time there are no plans to work on it. However, they did say that it was a “great suggestion that they will look into in the future”. According to the team, they “love when games like Splatoon 2 have it”.

First footage is in showing Minecraft’s upcoming Bedrock update running on Switch. This will introduce new features and allows for the different versions of Minecraft to be united with cross-platform play and more.

One aspect shown off in the footage is that it seems as though Minecraft can now render up to 14 chunks on Switch when undocked. That’s a notable increase from the current amount of 7 chunks in handheld mode and 10 chunks in docked mode.
