Minecraft Switch

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition has got off to a great start so far, and the lovely folks over at 4J Studios are committed to updating the Switch edition to keep it in line with other versions of Minecraft, which in our eyes makes it one of the best versions available courtesy of the console's hybrid nature.

The latest update will be available very soon, as the tweet above from 4J Studios states. You'll be able to try out the recently announced Adventure Time Mash-Up pack, as well as enjoy lots of other improvements:
