Xbox Live achievements are coming to the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft.
Content creator Patrick Maka, who first spotted the list of Xbox Live achievements, shared his discovery on Twitter. The list of achievements, courtesy of True Achievements, appear identical to the Xbox versions of the popular title.
A Minecraft representative has since confirmed to Polygon the achievements will be added once the Bedrock update is released. “We can confirm that Minecraft players on Nintendo Switch will soon be able to earn achievements tied to Xbox Live once the Bedrock update is released,” the spokesperson said.
It’s important to note Switch doesn’t currently have its own built-in achievements system.
Minecraft’s Better Together Update went live last year and it allows players across Xbox One, PC, Switch, mobile, VR, and Windows 10 to play together. However, notably absent from the update is the PlayStation 4 version of the game as Sony decided to block cross-platform play support on its console.
Be sure to read IGN’s review of Minecraft Switch Edition, which we think “provides an authentic Minecraft experience that is hugely benefitted by the ability to play it anywhere with physical controls.”
