So Mortal Kombat is returning to a Nintendo console after all.these years. Can't tell you how hyped I am for this. I played MKX on PS4 and I enjoyed it alot so I am expecting no less from MK11.

I'm hoping they'll release the original arcade versions of MK1, MK2, and UMK3 too.

Look forward to the Nintendo cameo. Link appears and rips someone's spine out.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

I'm happy to be able to have MK on the go again. Played 9 a ton when it released for Vita.

Instabuy for me. Cannot wait to be sub zero again!

So stoked for this. Buying it for my Switch for sure. Maybe buying it for my OneX too if that's the version my brother picks up. But either way I'm getting this game for Switch!

It's impossible to be sad about more high-quality third party games on Switch.

I'll be a day-one buyer.

Same. I feel obligated to buy them on both systems since I just got the Xbox One X.

I've been playing Mortal Kombat (the very first, in arcades) since I was 10. Yep. All those violent games and still I never hurt anyone in my life. Yay.

I was especially in love with Mortal Kombat 9 as it was a "reimagination" of the 3 titles I mainly grew up with. I also played LOADS of X. Even made second place in a local tournament.

Having said all that I fear I might experience some "franchise fatigue" or I'm getting too old for all that stuff. I really don't like how they spoil every fatality even before the game is out. The franchise is so devoid of any mystery (compared to back in the day where it was a MINDMELTER to see your first fatality or fight Reptile) and they try to cater to such a wide audience now.

I always liked the "mythical tournament" vibe more than the modern "whatever this is" thing they pulled especially with X and now with 11. Also I just think that the graphics look high res and smooth but not "realistic". The figthers don't look like humans. They looks like very high res avatars. Miis. Puppets. Anyone else getting my gist?

I don't like the over-the-top "there gotta be a flying eyeball somewhere" fatalities. I'd much rather enjoy a really gruesome, down to earth, photorealistic fighter with people that actually look like humans (or demigods or whatever) that perform gruesome "cant watch it" fatalities that are actually somewhat based in reality (therefore they have more impact) than this comic-booky over-the-top slaughterfest with gooey cartoonblood.

I know, unpopular opinion. I seem to always be "that guy". But, anyone else feeling like me? Loving the series to the core but somehow failing to connect to the "newer" offerings?

TBH I'd rather have Injustice 2 with the all of the DLC but I will probably pick up MK 11 once it's on sale.

I used to play a lot of Mortal Kombat from 1994 to 1997. I bought everything for my systems.

Mortal Kombat 1, 2, 3 on the SNES and Game Boy.
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 on the SNES.
Mortal Kombat Trilogy on the N64 released at the peak of my Mortal Kombat interest, but then faded out with Killer Instinct Gold releasing a month after, and the launch of the first SoulEdge/SoulCalibur and first Super Smash Bros. in the same generation. The fading quality of the MK franchise with games such as Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and Mortal Kombat 4 killed the series for me.

MK had a resurgence on the Gamecube and PlayStation 2 with MKV but I was enjoying Smash Bros. Melee and Soul Calibur II enough to not care.

MK 11 brings back the spirit though. It seems to have all the most popular characters playable and they're more defined now. The roster seems balanced. As for the graphics, I questioned the direction of the series numerous times, and I think MK has seen way worse times.

Gamexplain says that it seems to be 60FPS with very little stutter if there is any stutter at all. And that it looks pretty good, despite a few odd looking models.

So disappointing that we can't actually see the game running on Switch. I trust Gamexplain when they say it runs well, but I'd still prefer to see it myself. Hopefully Nintendo can release a trailer soon showing what the game really looks like on Switch.

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

After the Xenon Racer debacle, would you trust that trailer?

Excellent point. It’s almost better to hear first hand impressions from others than to see a trailer that may or may not represent the product.

I am wondering with MK11 on switch, I am noticing from the official site, that the only version available for switch is the basic, and does not include any of the extra DLC or costumes? I wonder if those will be available to download later for switch?
