I can say it’s arguably the finest iteration of Minecraft on ps2 studio Mojang’s magnum opus yet. December 2015 to bring a Nintendo system into the fold.

Nor, had the game arrived sooner, would it have been enough to fire the Wii U’s failing engines. But Minecraft, which debuted in 2011, presently thrives on everything from iOS and Android to Linux and Raspberry Pi. To be clear, Minecraft for Switch’s allure has more to do with Switch than Minecraft. The significance of there now being a continuous TV-mobile version of Minecraft can’t be overstated. At the risk of offending tablet apologists, Minecraft on smartphones and tablets is a wonderful experience marred by poor controls. This has nothing to do with Mojang or Minecraft. It’s the baked-in shortcoming of any 3D first-person 360-degree control scheme yet devised for a multitouch device that lacks discrete buttons and control sticks.
