Players of “Minecraft” know how Mojang is always releasing fixes and patches for the games – it borders on the obsessive. With “Minecraft Dungeons,” the developer appears to be taking a different approach with how it rolls out different improvements.

Almost a month after the game has arrived, Mojang has rolled out patch version 1.2.0.0. The patch has improvements for all platforms, with four of these exclusively packaged for the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Life reported.Those playing on Windows and Xbox One, however, hasn’t received any updates yet, but Mojang assured them that they are working on it.

The fixes for the Nintendo Switch that have been introduced so far are a fix for the game becoming unresponsive when Airplane Mode has been turned on; the unequip button being incorrect on single Joy-Con; incorrect button prompts when using a single Joy-Con in local co-op; and the game freezing while pressing the Back button on the code screen.

Most of the other fixes for all platforms focused on crashes and infinite loading screens. There were a few additions, such as the look of the Hero Cape, spawning issue fixes and other additional improvements. “Minecraft” has been famous for its surprising problems as it is famous for its developer’s fast action on these.

Meanwhile, according to Gamespot, “Minecraft Dungeon’s” crossplay options haven’t been implemented yet. Reports have clarified that the game doesn’t support crossplay across different platforms – PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch players won’t be able to see each other in-game, at least for the moment.

The game will only be playable with other players from the same platform. For instance, PC players will only be able to interact with PC players, Switch players with Nintendo Network subscribers, etc.

“Dungeons” found a way to circumvent this – at least for now – by offering local and online co-op with at least four players at launch. This might be seen as a prelude to multiplayer capabilities, such that players will be able to play cross-platform multiplayer with others once it is introduced.

For now, Mojang Studios is sticking to this form of play, while it is highly possible that true multiplayer may be included in a future patch.
