Mortal Kombat 11 was expected to arrive worldwide on the Switch in April until several European retailers updated their product listings for the Switch version of the game, changing the launch date to 10th May.
At the time, these retailers included Amazon and even the Warner Bros. store (the company responsible for publishing the game). If this delay wasn’t already set in stone, the official Nintendo UK store is now listing the game’s arrival for 10th May 2019 as well. This pretty-much confirms the latest entry won’t arrive on the Switch in this region the same day as other platforms.
On the plus side, if you do decide to pre-order the game from the UK Nintendo store, there’s a choice between the standalone game or a special bundle. The bundle priced at £59.99 contains a copy of the game and a Mortal Kombat Pixel Pals Lamp. The lamps to choose from include Raiden, Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Take a look below:
The Switch release of Mortal Kombat 11 in North America appears to be on track, with sites like GameStop and the local Nintendo store still showing the original launch date of 23rd April 2019.
This European delay isn’t the only Mortal Kombat 11 setback, after it was confirmed earlier in the month Switch owners would miss out on the Collector’s Edition. Fortunately, pre-ordering any version of the game will still unlock the special character, Shao Kahn.
