Minecraft Dungeons adds full touch controls to Xbox Cloud Gaming on phones

Minecraft Dungeons is already a killer game, especially with the addition of the Creeping Winter DLC, and it’s available on Xbox, Playstation, Switch, and PC platforms in equal measure. While crossplay still isn’t here to connect the various platforms together, Minecraft Dungeons joins many other games on September 15 by joining Project xCloud in its official release in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and its transition to Xbox Cloud Gaming. Even better, Minecraft Dungeons will implement unique touch controls to let players jump into the game without a controller.

Minecraft Dungeons controls have been carefully designed to feel as natural as possible on a mobile device, and can even be customized in terms of layout and size to suit each player. This makes Minecraft Dungeons one of the first games to use touch controls, and it’s one of the games best suited to make the transition. And players don’t have to worry about leaving behind when crossplay is finally added to the game; Since Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox Cloud Gaming is just the Xbox version of the game, crossplay will work just fine even with touch controls enabled.

Minecraft Dungeons will add its touch controls alongside the public release of Xbox Cloud Gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, alongside over 150 other titles, and will work flawlessly even with one of those fantastic budget phones. More games will join Minecraft Dungeons by removing the need for a controller as well, so it won’t be long before our phones truly become a gaming powerhouse no matter where we are.
