Today was a day of big announcements between Nintendo and Microsoft, honestly I am one who will clearly state that I hate everything about Minecraft.....that being said Nintendo of America had posted on twitter about how Minecraft players on the Nintendo Switch can play with their friends (or themselves) on the Xbox One, together between both consoles in the same world. THIS is big for anyone who is an avid gamer on both consoles as it may unlock future cross-play and/or shared game modes on future games to come out on both consoles. Fortnite was announced to be a crossplay title between Nintendo and Xbox when it releases.
You can even unlock XBOX Live Achievements for accomplishing stuff on the Nintendo version of Minecraft. Here is to hoping that Nintendo will give us Achievements/Trophies or something of the nature on the Switch soon.
