Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch is a strategic move by Nintendo, but hitting 60FPS in portable mode is a big deal in itself. The latest details on Minecraft for the Switch is that it'll run at 60FPS in portable mode, and that the world is "medium" sized compared to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Minecraft.

The world should be around 3072x3072, and when compared to Minecraft on the Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, and Wii U - it's huge, as their worlds were just 864x864. This means that Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch will have a world that is 13x bigger.

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition launches on May 11 digitally, with a physical release soon after.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
