The Minecraft game is now bigger, better and more beautiful—with new ways to play and share!



Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. You can build anything you can imagine with unlimited resources in Creative mode, or go on grand expeditions in Survival, journeying across mysterious lands and into the depths of your own infinite worlds.


Will you hide from monsters or craft tools, armor and weapons to fight back? No need to go alone! In the Nintendo Switch version you can share the adventure with friends in split-screen multiplayer and online!


With constant updates and community creations, Minecraft is bigger, better and more beautiful than ever before. Explore amazing player-made maps, thrilling minigames and more! Band together with friends playing on compatible smartphone, Windows 10 or console*, set up your own online world with Realms*, or join one of the massive player-run servers*! Also included is the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack—containing 40 Super Mario-themed skins, Mario-themed versions of the Overworld, The Nether, and The End, and a number of fun surprises for fans. There are so many ways to play!


Note: Players who previously purchased Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition can download this new version for free.
