How to download Minecraft Dungeons on Nintendo Switch


Minecraft Dungeons, Mojang’s hit dungeon crawling game, is available on most gaming platforms, including Nintendo Switch. Most Switch users have one for Nintendo exclusive games, but Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons are available there and are very successful.

Everyone: nintendo direct nintendo direct
Me: hmmmm an early access game, or minecraft dungeons

Minecraft Dungeons works equally well on any platform, and Nintendo Switch games generally require less space than other consoles, so there is a real benefit to installing it there. Here’s how to do it.

Download Minecraft Dungeons for Nintendo Switch

There are two main ways to buy Switch games, just like other consoles. Most consoles have almost phased out physical copies of games and heavily favored digital copies.

However, Nintendo Switch is one of the few gaming platforms that still prominently features the physical copy. Switch Cartridges are about as popular as their digital counterparts, but either way, there are two ways to get Minecraft Dungeons.

I bought Minecraft dungeons today from Nintendo e store and have to say this game is amazing. If you are thinking of buying it I totally recommend it. You will not be disappointed

The first is to buy the physical copy. It can be found at retailers where games are sold like Walmart, Best Buy, Gamestop, Target, etc. It sells for around $ 30 to $ 40.

Players can get a copy of Minecraft Dungeons and insert it into their Switch and there may be a short download that needs to happen (much shorter than digital time though). Otherwise, they can play immediately.

The other method is through the Nintendo eShop. Players can follow these steps to download:

  • Turn on the Nintendo Switch
  • Open the online store
  • Go to search and search for Minecraft Dungeons
  • Click on the game and click on buy
  • Enter card information or select a payment option that has been saved
  • Continue and it will send you back to the eShop
  • Minecraft Dungeons will be downloaded if there is room
  • Players can click on the app to see how much time is left to download it
  • Play and have fun
