Minecraft on Switch and Wii U gets some Microsoft skin packs


Along with Moana, for some reason

Minecraft still has not received the "Better Together" update on Nintendo platforms, but we're getting a step closer to that reality. Launched just today, people with a Switch or Wii U can dress up their characters as Master Chief from Halo, some of the characters from Gears of War, rock some Banjo-Kazooie skins and even cosplay as characters from the Disney film Moana. Yeah, I don't get that last one.

I reported a few months back how Master Chief would finally be gracing a Nintendo platform, but I'm still in awe that this has actually happened. If only other companies were as happy to let people experience what they want, where they want it, but we'll just have to make due with a blocky, chunky Chief on Switch for now.
