Minecraft resolution on the Nintendo Switch isn’t perfect… yet

Minecraft is out for the Nintendo Switch. If you want that perfect blend of portable and home console feel for this modern classic, word has it that the Nintendo Switch version is a real treat.

In terms of its frame rate, that remains true. The game rips at 60fps, according to TIME‘s recent review. But what about its resolution. Well, the game runs in 720p both while docked and undocked on the Nintendo Switch. That’s a bummer for those of us with larger, 1080p capable televisions.

Here’s the thing, though, TIME heard from Microsoft that this has nothing to do with the Switch’s power as a console. Here’s how they responded to TIME‘s asking about the resolution. Here’s TIME:

Update: Microsoft notes that 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. It’s possible, albeit not confirmed, that Minecraft for Switch could hit 1080p docked down the road.

We hope it’s fixed

Sure, Minecraft doesn’t necessarily need to be rocking in at a 108op resolution to be enjoyed. However, we’re well into the modern era, and games like this one should absolutely achieve resolutions greater than 720p on modern consoles.

Right? We hope this one is fixed to do just that.
