The long-awaited Better Together update for Minecraft has gone live today. It was intended to bring together almost the platforms using the game, but two have been left out. Everyone knows that PlayStation systems are the big hold-out. Better Together was never planned to reach Sony's current-gen console. The Minecraft update was supposed to hit Nintendo Switch systems today though, but will not.
It would seem there wasn't any major and catastrophic reasons for the Switch not getting the update together with everyone else. There were just some small things that needed to be finalized. Minecraft on the Nintendo Switch should see the Better Together update sometime around the holiday season.
As of right this moment, Better Together is still bringing Xbox One, Windows 10, VR, and mobile Minecraft players into each other's worlds. While the Switch being left out for the time being is a bit sad, it's good to know this won't be for long. For the first time, Minecraft players are enjoying the ability to play with almost all of their friends despite system differences. That's pretty neat!
