Halo is going cross-platform, well in Minecraft, that is

Another Halo-inspired Minecraft mashup pack is getting a new home — on the Nintendo Switch. According to the Eurogamer.net, Microsoft is dubbing this Minecraft Halo-themed pack “Better Together Update” and the Nintendo Switch isn’t the only place you’ll be able to play. In addition to the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, Android and iOS, Oculus Rift, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Samsung Gear VR will also be included. Sony declined to allow PS4 owners to get in on the cross-platform Minecraft fun.

The Halo skin and texture pack has been available to play on the Xbox One (and Xbox 360) for a while now, but this is the first time, players can play on other platforms.

“Custom skins are awesome, and we know you love them! Getting them to work on consoles requires some work on the platform holders’ side to enable things like this. We’re working with them to get everything in place to enable this in a future update.”

At the moment, there is a Mario Mashup Pack available for Minecraft on the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. Microsoft has not commented if other Mashup packs will make their way to the cross-platform version too. We will just have to wait and see.

Minecraft is available for purchase on the Minecraft website and is available on Xbox One, Windows 10, and many other platforms.
