Mortal Kombat 11 Official Nintendo Switch Gameplay Reveal 0 20 Screenshot

For months now, Switch owners have been begging NetherRealm Studios to share some proper footage of Mortal Kombat 11 running on Nintendo's hybrid device. Last week, we got a measly three-second look at the game up and running on this platform and now a slightly more substantial clip has been uploaded to YouTube the week before the Switch version's North American release.

This time around it's an actual gameplay reveal. While it's still not quite as direct as we would have liked, and seems to be made up predominantly of cutscenes, there are enough fight scenes sprinkled in between. Even if there are no health bars on display in the below footage - we'll let it slide, for now. On a more positive note, the handheld footage that is on display definitely looks silky smooth and the graphics appear to be surprisingly crisp.

At least now we have some evidence Mortal Kombat 11 is in a playable state on the Switch. It's a relief to finally see this after the series' co-creator Ed Boon recently mentioned just how great it was on this particular platform.

While we're at it, here's a look at a new trailer for the pre-order character Shao Kahn:

So, what do you think of this footage? Are you convinced yet? Will you be picking up the eleventh entry in the Mortal Kombat series on release? Tell us down below.
