Nintendo has unveiled a Minecraft-themed 2DS that’s one of three handhelds launching in Japan this summer.
A Creeper Edition 2DS XL is launching in Japan alongside an Animal Crossing and a Mario Kart 7 handheld.
The cross-play feature only exists in the Switch edition of the game, but the handheld is a nod to the burgeoning relationship between the two first-party companies.
Minecraft was the first Switch title to feature cross-play support between the two platforms, with Sony refusing to join the fun.
Sony has also held back on cross-play in Fortnite between the Switch and PS4, leaving players to wonder whether last month’s Minecraft cross-play advert might have been a dig at Sony.
The Creeper Edition comes with Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition pre-installed, while the Animal Crossing edition includes the amiibo-compatible version of New Leaf, and The Mario Kart 7 bundle comes with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed, as you’d expect.
All three handheld consoles are launching in Japan this summer.
There’s no word on whether the line of 2DS XLs will get a release outside of Japan.
