A major update is coming to Minecraft on Nintendo Switch, bringing a ton of new features as well as gameplay tweaks and fixes that vastly improve the experience.

The biggest new addition of the update is the character creator, which allows players to personalize their character in a number of ways, including body size and shape, limb replacement and tweaking of eyes, mouth, hairstyles and colors, facial hair, and skin tones. More than 100 items will be available for free, together with other custom accessories that have to be bought.

Gameplay also received some tweaks and additions. Foxes have been added, which will try to go after the player’s chickens and valuable. Brown Mooshrooms, Suspicious Stew and Whither Rose have also been added by the update, alongside some tweaks to Item Frames, new Abandoned Villages, new Note Block Instruments and more.

New Experimental Gameplay features have also been added. These include new and improved Structure Blocks, which allow creators the ability to copy and save out sections of their world into structures that can be later pasted back into the world.

The new update also adds a lot more tweaks and fixes. You can catch the full update notes by going here, courtesy of Nintendo Everything.
