Guide Nintendo Switch Games With Small Text: The Worst Offenders - How To Use Zoom On Switch
One common issue with many Switch games — especially games ported from other platforms — is uncomfortably small on-screen text.

Project: Strange Idea
i love minecraft on switch but it can be really laggy at times
It's really fun to mess with all the Mario statues, especially with a friend or family member
Hi if u want to play with me I mainly Play Minecraft SW-0970-9449-5691
It's always nice to have a game to just relax to, or you're just simply bored.
Though I only wish there more customization options regarding skins. I'd totally make or implement my own Mii Skin if I could.
Minecraft is a fun game no matter what. Sadly, this version of Minecraft is not great. Unless you want the Super Mario Mashup Pack, you'll have a better experience on your phone for $23 less. It is certainly one of my favorite switch games, but all Mojang had to do was get Minecraft Bedrock for phones and add controller support, split-screen multiplayer, and the Super Mario Mashup Pack. It's still a miracle that it is even available here in the first place because Mojang Studios is owned by Microsoft Corp., Nintendo's competitor.
@2ruffles The reason skins are the way they are is because Minecraft for the Switch is just a slightly modified version of Minecraft Bedrock (the same version on phones, Windows PCs, Xbox, etc. Would it make sense to import Miis as skins to Minecraft on Xbox (a system without Miis)? Still, on PC and mobile, you can import .png files as skins. What is really lacking is a file explorer on the Switch.
