Minecraft Running at 720p on Switch “Isn’t Question of System Power” – Microsoft
Issues currently being experienced with resolution shifting.
For a game that’s not graphically intensive (but can definitely tax the hardware with its procedural generation), it’s weird to see Minecraft only running at 720p resolution on the Nintendo Switch. It’s still a good game – heck, it’s Minecraft – but why not 1080p? Is it due to the Switch not being as powerful as other platforms when running Minecraft?
According to Microsoft when speaking to Time, it’s not a hardware issue. “Minecraft’s 720p docked/undocked resolution isn’t a question of system power, but stems from issues currently experienced shifting from one resolution to the other when docking/undocking.”
Microsoft didn’t confirm whether a 1080p resolution would be happening in the near future. That being said, if the Switch can handle it, it’s certainly possible.
