Digital Foundry is back with another in-depth technical analysis. Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition is the focus this time around.

Minecraft does indeed run at 720p on Switch regardless of it being docked or undocked. However, 4J Studios once again confirmed to Digital Foundry that the team is looking into the situation and the game could see an increase to 1080p docked in the future with an update.

Mojang has recently showed off new features coming to the console editions of Minecraft soon. With Minecraft recently being released on the Switch, these new features will be coming to Minecraft: Switch Edition at the same time. Some of the new features added to this update are dual wielding, new mobs, & some new blocks. Check out the video below to watch some of the new features coming to the game.

Since the launch of Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition last week, some users have been reporting an odd issue. Without any input from the user, the problem involves screenshots being taken automatically and randomly. While not confirmed at the time, the situation appeared to be tied to Minecraft.

4J Studios posted an update on Twitter today confirming that Minecraft is indeed the cause, and Nintendo now knows what’s causing it. A bug fix will be addressed soon to not only address problems with screenshots, but false Home button presses as well.

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition currently runs at 720p at all times. Even when the system is docked, the resolution doesn’t change.

After speaking with Microsoft, TIME reports 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.” The publication further adds: “It’s possible, albeit not confirmed, that Minecraft for Switch could hit 1080p docked down the road.”
