Nintendo has announced that they’re bringing Minecraft to the Nintendo Switch. The game, launching first on the eShop and later in stores, will include everything you’ve come to expect from the title and then some. For instance, Nintendo is including exclusive Super Mario-themed packs and skins throughout the game for a more Nintendo-y experience, while multiplayer play is also possible with multiple sets of Joy-Cons (soon available in Neon Yellow).
