Minecraft: Switch Edition is largely similar to other console versions of the game, but the game’s resolution is having some difficulties reaching its full potential. When the game is docked, it is at 720p. Now, courtesy of some details from a TIME article, we now know why.
“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.”
