I'm a bit confused. I've been hearing that if you have the Legacy Xbox One Edition of Minecraft, you will be able to get the Bedrock edition for free (which is true). I haven't heard anyone say that it would be the same case for the Switch.
Question: Will MC: Switch Edition owners also get the new, BTU/Bedrock edition of Minecraft for free?
We’re still working on getting this new version of Minecraft ready for players on Nintendo Switch. We want to make sure that everything is ready to bring this platform onboard, and there’s a lot of work to do to make that happen. After all, no one has ever done anything like this before in the history of gaming. We expect to be ready with the free Better Together Update on Switch this winter.
