Hi Everyone, I'm thinking about getting Minecraft on the switch for my 7 year old son. However he spends half his time with me, and half his time with his mother at a different house. She was thinking of getting Minecraft on an iPad for him.
The Switch does not move houses.
I'm unfamiliar with Minecraft and accounts and when I've asked some other, older kids I know they just ... are terrible at explaining anything. I can't figure it out and googling has not been helpful.
What I'm worried about is my son potentially have two different accounts and he won't want to play the game at one of the houses due to split progression. Or he'll like one version better than another. But I'm not sure if these things are legitimate concerns. I don't fully understand if Minecraft is like some type of western RPG with significant progression (at one extreme) or more like a platforming roguelike of some type, maybe like Mario Bros, where every time you start, you start over.
Is this going to cause issues with him moving between two houses and potentially playing the game on two different systems?
As an example, he doesn't have his own google account. So sometimes he gets an Android game at my house on my tablets/phones, and plays it, but when he's at his mum's, even if he has the same game on her google account, the progression doesn't link up -- so he ends up playing some games only at my place and some only at hers because he doesn't want to keep two different sets of progression going.
