The "better together" update allow multi platform gaming is supposedly going to happen for Nintendo Switch this year. Does anyone know if when this becomes available, will existing Minecraft Swtich Edition owners get that as a free update or will they need to buy a whole new Minecraft download?
I asked Nintendo Switch on line support and they had no answer.
When better together was released for the x-one you had to own a copy of the old version and play it for more than 5 hours in the past 30 days and you got it free, likely will be the same for the Switch.
Yeah it'll be free for anyone who has the mcswitch version but it will count as a different game.
Also we have no idea when it will be released but they showed a video where cross-platform multiplayer was working (with some bugs) so it should be spring at the least hopefully. (but don't take my word on that)
