Microsoft and 4J Studios have released a new software update for Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, seeing the popular creative sandbox builder now on version 1.0.12.
This adds the Moana Character Pack that, once purchased, will let you play as Moana, Maui, and all the crew from Motunui, as well as Skin Pack 1 with which you can play as Xbox characters such as Banjo, Gruntilda, Mumbo Jumbo, Bottles, and Master Chief.
There are multiple additions and improvements, but, rather than having us wax lyrical about them, it’s easier if you read through the breakdown below:
