Minecraft is becoming a pretty nifty way to see your favourite characters from rival platforms have a presence on the latest Nintendo hardware; back in January we saw Banjo-Kazooie return to our screens (albeit in blocky form), and we recently found out that playing the game on Switch can net you Xbox Live achievements. Happy days.

Now, with the latest update for Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition and Minecraft: Wii U Edition, players will be able to roam their favourite sandbox environments as Final Fantasy XV stars Noctis, Gladio, Ignis, Prompto, and many more, venturing beyond the world of Eos and into the untold realms of the Minecraft universe thanks to a new skin pack. This pack should be available to purchase from today.

The update has also addressed an incredibly specific crashing issue which, almost comically, would only be triggered when players looked at a cauldron while holding a water bottle obtained by fishing. 

Do you play Minecraft on the go on your Switch? Or do you perhaps still enjoy some exploration on Wii U? Let us know down below.
