With the rise of cross-platform gaming, Minecraft has pioneered seamless gameplay across various devices. To enable crossplay on Nintendo Switch, players are required to link their Microsoft account to their Nintendo Switch via a dedicated web portal.

Setting Up Minecraft Crossplay on Nintendo Switch

To set up a Nintendo Switch for Minecraft Crossplay with the help of the aka.ms/remoteconnect website, you would typically follow these steps:

  1. Start Minecraft on your Nintendo Switch:
    •  Launch the game and go to the Minecraft main menu.
  1. Sign in with a Microsoft Account:
    • Navigate to the option to sign in with a Microsoft account. This might be found under the “Settings” or directly promoted on the main menu.
    • Once you select this option, Minecraft will provide you with a code and direct you to visit the aka.ms/remoteconnect website.
  1. Visit aka.ms/remoteconnect on another Device:
    • On a separate device with internet access (such as a PC, tablet, or smartphone), open a web browser.
    • In the address bar, type aka.ms/remoteconnect and go to the website.
  1. Enter the Code:
    • Once on the site, you will be prompted to enter the provided code from your Nintendo Switch screen.
    • Enter the code carefully and proceed.
  1. Complete the Sign-in Process:
    • After entering the code, you will either sign in to your existing Microsoft account or be prompted to create one if you do not already have an account.
    • Follow the instructions to sign in or set up an account.
  1. Confirm the Setup:
    • Once signed in, your Nintendo Switch should now be connected to your Microsoft account.
    • The screen on your Nintendo Switch will refresh, and if everything has procedurally succeeded, it should say that you’re signed in with your Microsoft account.

Once you have linked your Microsoft account with your Nintendo Switch, you will be able to play Minecraft with friends on other platforms that also have the Bedrock edition—including Xbox, PlayStation, mobile devices, and Windows 10 PCs.

Remember to keep your Microsoft account secure and not share your sign-in details with anyone. Microsoft uses this account linking to help enable secure cross-play across different platforms.

If you encounter any specific issues during this process once the search functionality is restored, I would suggest checking the official Nintendo or Minecraft support pages for further guidance.
