Achievements are coming to Minecraft on Switch – just not in the traditional sense. Microsoft and Mojang have confirmed that you’ll be able to earn achievements tied to Xbox Live through Nintendo’s console once the Bedrock update has gone live.

Thanks to Bedrock, Minecraft is being united on a number of platforms. Aside from achievements, it implements other features such as cross-platform play.
