If you've been playing Minecraft on your Nintendo Switch, you'll be happy to know that the most recent update has fixed a whole heckuva lot of problems. Not only that, but it's added a couple pretty cool things as well! The January 30, 2018 update has added Skin Pack 1 and the Moana Character Pack. I'm clearly behind the times, since I didn't even know there was a Moana Character Pack, much less that it was going to be on the Switch!
If that news wasn't good enough for Switch Minecrafters, there's also the fact that all kinds of bugs have been fixed. Some of them are silly, but just go to show that the Switch version of the game is being handled with care. One of those silly bugs: the game would crash when you placed a ped next to a cactus. That shouldn't happen anymore. There's also the fact that it was impossible to put vines underneath torches; this has been fixed.
Other smaller changes include the ability to put flowerpots, doors, and pumpkins on top of glass blocks. You should be able to put rails and torches on glowstone, sea lanterns, glass, and ice blocks now. The same is true of redstone, levers, and buttons on top of pistons. When you're playing on Peaceful difficulty, animals will run away now when you hit them (as they should). Enchantment experience will now cost the same in Creative mode as it would in the Bedrock Edition.
