It is not too bad. It looks like a "graphically scandalous" base PS4 game.

Why is it a 720p30 video on youtube instead of a 1080p one? Also frame rate didnt seem totally stable (theres clearly dips in the video) and tons of popin textures. That said it looks okay for a Switch game, Im just dissapointed they didnt do Monster Hunter World 2, for the PS5+XSX instead.

There's no "instead" in there. Two teams work on MH series. the team that worked on the high specs MH are surely working on a new ultra high specs 4k-200fps speed of light MH for ps5/xsx/pc. Just be patient, Iceborn isn't that old you already willing a new one?
(the issues you've mentionned are more video issues. and i agree that having some textures that pop-up is rather dissapointing but they have few months above them to polish some stuff)

I didnt know they had mutiple teams... I just thought it would be neat to have a new one, developed for the PS5/XSX in the early years of them launching. If that turns out true, another reason, to get a new console.

Tbf, the other two consoles got their MH game, while Nintendo had to deal with the MH story based game, which wasn't exactly mainline MH, so they get this to make up for it.
