Minecraft is now available on the Nintendo Switch

"Our various E3 activities will showcase the next steps for Nintendo Switch, from a summer of social competitive gaming to a holiday season highlighted by a milestone Mario adventure", said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime in a statement.

The Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft adds several extra worlds, too, like Chinese Mythology, Halloween, Festive and Greek Mythology, plus more skin packs including Redstone Specialists, multiple Battle and the Beast skin packs, and two of the Festive packs.

But the fact is, Minecraft on Nintendo Switch works really well. It presented a striking take on the rhythm game genre, a field once made popular by titles with elaborate plastic controllers, and came complete with ultra-fast visuals and trippy music.

Show attendees who will be in Nintendo booth on June 13 will be the first people who can get their hands on Super Mario Odyssey and also other games for Nintendo Switch.

"The render distance of paintings and other items is still the same as docked mode, however".

Available in the Nintendo eShop, the game also includes the Super Mario Mash Up pack with tons of Mario inspired surprise to discover. You can play with up to 8 other gamers online and if everyone has their own Switch, you can play with up 8 others locally as well.

However, if you're still not convinced you need to buy the game again, there's plenty of new titles on the horizon that could tempt you to part with your hard earned cash.

After a successful start, it looks like more and more developers and publishers are now convinced that the Nintendo Switch is not going to be a flop and are considering more games for the new console.

Treehouse, tourneys and the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 video presentation will be livestreamed direct from the show and fans can check that out by heading Nintendo's E3 website.

ARMS will make its way to Nintendo Switch on June 16th, while the squid shooter sequel fun of Splatoon 2 is launching July 21st.
