Minecraft is a video game that has been designed by Markus “Notch” Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. The developing company was eventually purchased by Microsoft. So, currently, Minecraft is owned by the American multinational technology company with headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
Back when Minecraft was purchased by Microsoft everyone has feared that the company will stop releasing updates of this game for its rival platforms, such as: iOS, Mac OS, PlayStation consoles etc. However, it didn’t take long for Microsoft to react and to confirm that it will keep updating all the platforms without taking advantage of its ownership on Minecraft.
In Minecraft you need to be creative and built constructions by using textured cubes in a 3D generated world. However, that’s not all, as you also have other activities such as: resource gathering, crafting, exploration and even combat.
Anyway, today we will talk about a new update that has been released for Minecraft on Nintendo Switch and Wii U. The new update comes with new maps and skins, but also features a Glide Myths Track Pack, allowing you to travel the clouds of Icarus, adventure into Excalibur, and ride into action in Celts.
The new update comes with “Strangers – Biome Settlers 3” skin pack that contains 22 skins, allowing you to dress as End Brewer, End Hunter or Ocean Archer and many others.
The update is already available in the eShop, so if you own a Nintendo Switch or Wii U and you play Minecraft, update your client as soon as possible. The new update also comes with many fixes and changes, including transferable save files between the two consoles.
