Can I Transfer a Minecraft Dungeons License to a Mojang or Minecraft Account?

How can I Change my Minecraft Dungeons In-game Name? 

The in-game name you see in Minecraft Dungeons will be the name associated with the following accounts. If you want to change that name you must contact the appropriate support team. 

  • PCs use a player’s Xbox Live Gamertag as the player's in-game name. To find out how to change your Gamertag go to Microsoft support. 
  • Xbox One uses a player’s Xbox Live Gamertag as the player's in-game name. To find out how to change your Gamertag go to Microsoft support.

(Note: You must link your Nintendo account with a Microsoft account if you want to play online.) To find out how to change your online Gamertag go to Microsoft support.
