Minecraft for Switch and Wii U will be having maintenance tonight from 5:50 PM until 7:30 PM Pacific tonight.  New game patch incoming?

A new trailer for the Glide mini-game.  The Glide track pack shown is called Giants.

This is still not the planned upcoming big update, but it adds some new things along with the usual bug/exploit fixes.  The more important news though as the latest Minecraft for Switch update enabled 1080p support as long as you're playing with the Switch docked.
 
Change log:

Added Canyon, a free Glide track.
Added Biome Settlers 2 Skin pack.
Added Terracotta and Glazed Terracotta layers to Tumble.
Enable 1080p display when placed in the Nintendo Switch Dock.
Improved performance in Solo Glide when restarting the level (particularly with split-screen spectators).
Totem of Undying now also applies Fire Resistance II.
Fixed some areas where it was possible to escape from Battle maps or Glide tracks.
Fixed a bug where players were unable to milk a Cow in Creative Mode.
Fixed a bug where players were being teleported back to the Nether portal shortly after arriving in the other dimension.
Fixed a bug where broken Banners wouldn’t stack with crafted Banners.
Fixed a bug where Wheat, Ladders, and Banners were not correctly spawning in Woodland Mansions.
Fixed a bug where Monster Spawners in Woodland Mansions were Pigs instead of Spiders.
Fixed a bug where the Item Frame icon appeared when holding a Map.
Fixed an incorrect death message when players were killed by Zombie Villagers.
Fix for custom names of Mobs not being shown in death messages.
Fix for being unable to unlock “Sniper Duel”.
Fix for being unable to unlock “Camouflage”.
Fix for MCCE #5183 – Player can kill a tamed Parrot with PvP disabled.
Fix for MCCE #5062 – Farmer Villagers only plant one seed after harvesting a whole crop of seeds from a field.
Fix for MCCE #4103 – Time spent on the Pause menu when under water counts towards the “Free Diver” trophy.
Fix for MCCE #3112 – When trying to throw food, Villagers throw it in the wrong direction.
Fix for MCCE #5219 – Two types of Bone Block with different pictures.
Fix for MCCE #4989 – Zombie Villager Spawn eggs are the wrong colour.
Fix for MCCE #5261 – Flower hitbox is displaced.
Fix for MCCE #4897 – Beds explode when TNT Explodes is disabled.
Fix for MCCE #4954 – Mobs can’t move with a block above them.
Fix for MCCE #3010 – Constructing an End portal in a certain method can lead to the End Portal being created next to the portal frame.
Fix for MCCE #5292 – Only regular Skeletons spawning in the Nether.
Fix for MCCE #5151 & MCCE #5208 – Item frames don’t show the custom name of their items.


EDIT - Minecraft to have maintenance tonight for Switch and Wii U. Did Microsoft put out this change log too early or are they needing to do emergency maintenance to fix something this update broke? I have no clue!

Apparently Skyrim and Fallout texture packs are now available in the Switch version of Minecraft.  If you've been waiting for one/both of these, now you can buy 'em.

Mojang posts some more information about how Xbox Live support will work for non-Microsoft platforms with the coming Better Together update.

 

 

Xbox Live is a social network for gamers, that’s free to join, doesn’t require an Xbox console and gives you your very own gamertag – also used as your name when playing in Minecraft!

 

Starting with the Better Together update, you’ll need to have a gamertag of your own to connect to online multiplayer experiences, whether that’s a Realm, an official server partner or a hosted Minecraft world via an IP address.

 

By creating an Xbox Live account and gamertag, when logged in you can set your own privacy and multiplayer preferences, create and manage accounts for your family members, and stake your claim on your name in the Minecraft universe. Plus, because everyone will have an account, if you do run into any creepers ruining the fun, it’s easy to report them, and for our Enforcement team to identify the player in question.

 

Of course if you are playing on a local area network (LAN) connection, you won’t need to sign in to play with friends on the same network.

 

If you've never had an Xbox, do know Windows 10 has Xbox One and thusly Xbox Live compatibility built-in.  If you signed up for Xbox Live via Windows 10 you can use that account to use Minecraft on non-Microsoft platforms that get the Better Together update.

The Better Together beta has started for Minecraft for Android and Windows 10 players.  The beta will also be coming to XBox One players soon.  If things go fine, the update should go gold later this year (the target timeframe is autumn).

Mojang announced the next update that is coming soon to various platforms (Switch is listed as coming soon):

https://gonintendo.c...-to-switch-soon

 

New map:  Infinity Dungeon EX, an update to a classic Java Minecraft map, brings the thrill of dungeon crawling to Minecraft.  Every time you play this map, dungeons will be randomly generated and will test your skills at dungeon crawling, parkour, puzzle solving, and just plain on surviving.

 

Some more player skins are also inbound:  Summer skins (beach and swimwear), Survival (play as seasoned survivers who look very worn out from fighting, exploring, and just surviving), Kings and Paupers (play as royalty or mere peasants), and Sports (play as a basketball, soccer, or hockey player).

I guess this is official (I'm assuming here):  Wii U won't get the Better Together update since Mojang instead will be releasing a way to transfer Wii U worlds from Minecraft: Wii U Edition to Minecraft on Switch in the very next Minecraft update to both Wii U and Switch versions of Minecraft.

 

Guess I'll need to buy a Switch copy of Minecraft and sell my Wii U copy after that update hits.
