Minecraft 'Better Together' Update for Switch Delayed to 2018

Minecraft 'Better Together' Update for Switch Delayed to 2018

Mojang and Microsoft have delayed the launch of the Super Duper Graphics pack, along with the update that would allow cross platform multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch. The Minecraft team is actively supporting this new version of the game as the main priority, rolling out updates simultaneously across the different platforms that it supports. You can watch a full rundown on The Update Aquatic, starring Minecraft's lead creative designer Jens Bergensten, and Bojack Horseman and Arrested Development Star Will Arnett in the video above, in what is maybe one of the most off-brand game tie-ins I've ever seen.

The Nintendo Switch community will still be getting the new version of Minecraft with cross-platform multiplayer, but not until 2018.

Currently, the waters of the well-loved game title give nearly no reason to dive in other than for the sake building an underwater base.




The new structures, including shipwrecks and icebergs, will hide treasure, and dolphins will leap from the sea and guide you to that treasure, which is nice of them.

Players will be able to explore shipwrecks and coral, as well as interacting with new types of fish. In the meantime, "Minecraft" is available for play on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and PC. Both updates were supposed to be released this year, but now "Minecraft" is saying that they will be coming in 2018.

Instead, the biggest improvement (beyond the Better Together release) is The Update Acquatic, which refines underwater adventures. The SuperDuper Graphics pack is expected to feature refinements for the visuals of the entire "Minecraft" universe, and though there is no release date as of yet, fans are expecting it spring next year.
