Nintendo Switch Gets Xbox Achievements via New Minecraft Update

Despite Nintendo’s refusal to enter the modern online gaming era with frivolous things like built-in voice chat, a party system, a username system, and even game-level achievements – we’ve learned the Nintendo Switch is finally getting an achievement system of sorts, via a new Minecraft update.

That’s right, the sandbox game is getting Xbox Live achievements, which are similar to their Xbox and mobile counterparts.

This is the first game to support a meta-level achievements system on the hybrid console. Here’s a look at the achievements, via Twitter user Patrick Maka:

Minecraft has been available for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, 3DS, PS Vita, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, and both iOS and Android. The console version’s new Bedrock update was rolled out in September of last year, enabling players to play in VR, as well as cross-platform.
