TL:DR you already own it and this is a free update.
This happens a lot
I’m surprised

I've never bought the game before. I only just got a Nintendo Switch. Must be a glitch.
its a new version for people that already had it.

Not on mine. £19.99. Did you join a family group by any chance with someone who already owns this?
So will your account flag for the free download if a minecraft cartridge has been used in your system even if it's just being borrowed?

If so then this probably can be abused with friends

Nope. Just me. I'm confused by all the comments. I got my switch from game yesterday, made a new Nintendo account and today i just started browsing the game store to see what they had and it said that Minecraft is 100% of so i thought this was for everyone.

It's a 2nd hand switch? Nothing with game would surprise me. Its 19.99 on the store, its not a 'glitch'.

Very interesting theory, I wonder if the console was a Minecraft bundle console instead?
I believe this is the cross platform version. I own the Xbox version and a while ago I got this version "free" - same version across all platforms instead of individual editions for each.
I recently got a switch and I can confirm what others have said - full price for me
Cold. Total BS.
Is it a new Switch or pre-owned? I know the Wii U links game downloads to the machine rather than the User account (annoying if you sell it as your games go with it).
£19.99 for me and just got a switch
£19.99 for me too
I think if you bought Minecraft on the WiiU you get it free on the Switch.

No, that can't happen as Minecraft Switch Edition never had a physical release, just digital. The physical release is the new cross-play version of the game that owners of the previous version can download for free.

No, that's not true at all.

Full game


Have you actually started playing Minecraft? Because by the sounds of it, you've downloaded the patch, which will show a Minecraft tile on the Home menu, but you won't actually be able to play it.
The game is free after you pay for it
Terrible even if u get for free lol
