Warner Bros. Games has revealed Mortal Kombat 1, the latest instalment in NetherRealm Studio's long-running fighting franchise.
Launching on September 19th, 2023, the game will "usher in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities", with the Mortal Kombat universe itself reborn and created by Fire God Liu Kang.
Key characters from the debut trailer make their appearance, including Scorpion, Sub Zero, Kitana, Mileena, Kung Lao, and more. Pre-orders for the game will go live on May 19th, 2023, and players who pre-order will gain access to the character Shang Tsung.
Are you up for another Mortal Kombat game on Switch? Which guest characters would you like to see? Get over here and let us know.
Very cool to see a AAA dev regularly supporting the Switch like this.
I really kan't wait.
Jesus, put a NSFW tag on that video.
So how is this gonna run on Switch????
Like wtf. TEKKEN and SF skipped Switch and yet MK is still coming.
Ik MK11 sold really well on Switch and it exceeded WB and NRS expectations so hence they would want to do a Switch version but I expected this game to be on the next Nintendo console at least.
But oh well. Let’s see how it runs
I'll wait for the inevitable Komplete Edition on the new hardware.
Yeeeessssss. I can't wait, this will be my next purchase after TotK. Maybe it's time to finally get the Aftermath expansion on my Switch, and this game will run better than 11, which already played well on Switch, mark my words.
Well, that kicked the gratuitous gore up a notch, didn't it?!
@anoyonmus MK11 ran surprisingly decent on switch. Sure, it never got close to 60 most of the time, but a feat nonetheless
Wait, does it mean Switch will be missing out on Mortal Kombat 360?
Yo guys, according to this website I found, the people behind the Switch port of MK1 is Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive
@nhSnork Mortal Kombat 1 is a different game than Mortal Kombat 9.
Although I didn’t play MK11 but I did see all the cutscenes, it appears this will be a new reality based on what Fire God Liu Kang will do.
It was nice that they showed the switch version in the video.
Not my usual genre-but I loved MK11-even if I’m not good at it
Also, can’t wait for the sequels to this: Mortal Kombat Series X and Series S!
@Cashews I see "Mortal Kombat" and automatically read it as the NSFW tag. Every new version ups the ante for intense gore.
@Cashews Not really necessary, this is Mortal Kombat after all.
YES! It will be glorious!
Disgusting. Was beautiful until the gory violence started
Oh, so the SNES port coming to Switch, everybody waited for. 😂
@mercilessrobot @LinktotheFuture yeah I get that - but I didn't expect the gruesome sound effects and brain splatting on the promo video. Some hitting, electricity sure. I'm all for it - just need a proper warning.
Day 1 purchase for me. Hope they don’t require a 32 GB download with the physical edition.
They really gotta come up with a better naming scheme lol
when the really full version comes out, I'll buy it
Looking good! 👍
Yes and no and yes! Yes, I want this, but wish they'd brought the arcade originals along with it. Buuuut I'll still pick it up and have a good time.
@westman98 Mortal Kombat: Fire God Cometh
or something like that. drop the numbers.
@Cashews You're being sarkastic right?
@Slowdive Good idea
Terrible trailer. ‘Story’ and character stuff totally at odds with the whole fatality / general gameplay of MK, and right in there too with the scummy WB preorder ‘bonus’ BS. As usual!
I'll get this for either PS5 or XBX, but great to see the Switch is being supporting by third party devs
Looks pretty dope. I still have MK11 purchased and never played it.
@Cashews they did for awhile, with Armageddon and Deadly Alliance, then they went back to numbers
With all the retro collections being released the absence of the MK games is notable. New games are certainly most welcome but I’m surprised they haven’t announced a arcade / console versions kollection. Especially for the 30th anniversary.
I'll take a Mortal Kombat 3 Ultimate port any day!
@anoyonmus So if this is using UE5, I am confident it will be fine for Switch.
My Surface Book 2 - which, granted, is more powerful than a Switch - can run the current Layers of Fear demo at 720p, low settings, and TSR (UE5 internal upscaler) in "Balanced" and averages about ~85 fps with CPU load being in like the 40% range and GPU at 100%. And it still looks really good at Low.
I think with some overall asset cutbacks, lower resolution, and using a much more aggressive TSR setting (like Performance or Ultra Performance), this game can run pretty decent on Switch.
Bottom line: UE5 is so much more efficient than UE4 that is has amazing scalability and still looks really good.
But that assumes this is using UE5.
Is it possible to port Playstation 5/Series X games on Switch? We know that this was "technically impossible" for games like Resident Evil 7 on PS4.
Maybe i would prefer it to stay "new gen" only but lets wait and see.
@Manxman64 good point. SF doesn't do it maybe people like the numbers. Calling it "1" is very confusing though.
Was watching the first part of the video and was thinking it looks pretty but where's the gore?? Two seconds later splat, hahaha
Me hoping it was the arcade game from the 90s 😂
@Cashews I'm thinking "Mortal Kombat: Liu Kang God"
Helps if you read it fast. 😉
More of the same weird over-the top gore. I've been an avid fan since the very first game and hoped this was kind of like a remaster of the old game. Not interested in this, regardless of how it runs.
I'll wait to see how much they ruined the otherwise great game with mtx begging before I get it.
Only if physical then order.
As long as they release it as a full finished product rather than dlc characters over the space of 6 months. I'm in. It looks great and the last one looked fantastic on switch.
@JAGleics you are out then. They are not going to do that. Neither is Capcom - whom all other fighting games that aren't Smash Bros - follow.
@Cashews It's... Mortal Kombat. What were you expecting?!
I’m intrigued be the existence of Switch ports, so seeing a next gen game on Switch makes the Switch port aficionado in me very happy.
Looks a LOT like...Mortal Kombat, lol.
Impressive they're bringing it to the Switch. Sure, the Switch version will probably not run the best, but if you're looking for the "tournament standard" you aren't buying for the Switch anyway. I imagine it will run "well enough" to be enjoyable to casual play in vs and the single-player squad.
@Rob3008 A Not Safe For Work tag on the video. I really don't expect initial commercials to be over the top. I'm not mad about it. I'll know next time I guess
That name is going cause alot of misunderstandings got Mortal kombat (aka mk 1) than mortal kombat aka MK9 now MK1 aka MK12
Why did they purposely lock Shang Tsung as a DLC character? Also that title will cause major confusion with the series going forward.
@dimi Dude the Switch is a current gen system, not last gen like PS4 and Xbox One. Current gen doesn't mean power or specs, it just means it's a major system one of the big three are currently supporting at the moment.
@GamingFan4Lyf of course the resolution is lower. Switch games are not in 4K. The question is perhaps how much lower the resolution could be before it looks kind of terrible.
@GamingFan4Lyf I think this is using UE4. Because MK11 used a modified UE3 iirc. So I think they are using UE4
This will be interesting how this looks and runs. MK11 was impressive for sure but you could tell. No rollback is a given. If you seen how the new SF runs on PS4 and even that struggles. Either case it still is pretty cool. Going to buy because I'm curious....but is 70 dollars worth the test?
@Serpenterror Dude, i think everyone is aware about it. Stop lecturing about defining current generation, it is kind of a ridiculous "side quest" or side discussion. But Switch hardware is not current generation - competitive. Of course, hardware matters a lot when you take a PS5 generation game and put it on Switch hardware which is probably somewhere between PS3 and PS4. Nintendo did not even do a "Switch Pro" to better keep up.
I wonder if hogwart s legacy (for switch) is delayed because of technical reasons or because they want to wait for everyone to buy and play Zelda.
You guys worried about DLC gotta run the Madden formula and just accept being a game behind. Save yourself some money, get all that DLC for the cost of the normal game (or less). Sure, it'll make finding online matches a bit harder, but something tells me you aren't looking for the most competitive experience available.
So get on that MK11 grind. It's (k)omplete!
@anoyonmus It is cool to get it on Switch if you want to play it on the go. Otherwise, perhaps better to get the PS5 version. I think the difference could be quite significant.
@N8tiveT3ch i played the Street Fighter VI demo on PS4 and i did not notice any problems.
But it is probably just me who did not notice the problems. I have not compared it to other versions.
@Serpenterror I think they locked the shang tsung fellow to make people pay a little bit extra except for the basic price. Maybe he should not be a dlc figure.
Anyway, i am probably not getting Mortal Kombat 1 on Switch or on any other system either. Too brutal for me and i have not played the previous games either for quite a while. I think i played some MK vs DC universe a few years ago. Many years ago actually. If anything, i should get SF 6.
@N8tiveT3ch no not worth it, if you just want to watch how it runs, watch it on twitch. But if you want to play the game, maybe buy it. I think i pass on mortal kombat as a whole and stay with Street Fighter..
Kind of funny how the both games are released only a few months apart. An old rivalry still ongoing.
@jco83 Yeah i kind of think the same thing, the violence is very gory and graphic. Maybe it was "fun" in the old days with all the exaggerated violence and the ridiculous amount of blood because it was absurd, fun in an absurd kind of way, but now with such realistic graphics, it is kind of disgusting instead.
@Simon97 I mean, could be an upscaled 720p and upscaled 900p but with the internal up-scaler is running at a native 50% resolution.
Using Layers of Fear as my testbed - 720p on my Surface Book 2 in both Balanced and Ultra Performance TSR upscaling looked pretty convincing - but visual noise was noticeable around light sources.
Fortnite may be a better option to check on Switch since it's now using UE5.
@N8tiveT3ch there will be rollback
@GamingFan4Lyf ok so Fortnite may run better on Switch.
But the new MK is using UE4 if I am not mistaken.
Oh man this looks brutal and so much fun, but I'm always split when it comes to new MK games should I get it right away or try and hold out for an eventual Komplete Edition, decisions decisions...
@anoyonmus Rollback on Switch? Where has this been confirmed?
Or, are you just hoping out loud?
@Zochmenos well it didn’t say Switch but it didn’t mention other consoles.
It said there will be rollback on the FAQs on the website.
The Mortal Kombat website
@GamingFan4Lyf is Mortal Kombat 1 using UE5? I was thinking it is UE4 because MK11 was using UE3.
@anoyonmus Time will tell, but if it is UE4, I mean, I don't know how that will perform.
The only game I know that runs UE4 on Switch is Yoshi's Crafted World - but that's Nintendo first-party, so the level of performance expectation far higher than third-party games.
@anoyonmus If I were considering it on Switch, I think I'd be waiting for a specific confirmation as NR isn't developing the Switch version. No qualifiers for right now is a good sign, however, I would bet good money ($5) on Switch missing rollback and (k)rossplay.
BUT! I hope I'm wrong.
@Zochmenos didn’t 11 on Switch have rollback?
Also no crossplay is to be expected anyway. It wouldn’t really be fair for Switch players against people on PC and the other consoles.
Especially on PC where they will cheat
@Cashews MK has looked like this for the past few entries. There were articles going around for a while about some of the graphic artists essentially ending up with PTSD from creating such detailed imagery of bodies being destroyed. Really wild.
@Simon97 it's WB, so I would guess they care more about going against Zelda than any kinda technical shortcomings.
...because I am a cynical man with a heart of coal.
@anoyonmus Oh, did it? I was under the impression the network experience was pretty bad on Switch. Maybe it does but wifi warriors make it irrelevant. I (potentially) stand corrected on that one.
PC cheating on fighting games isn't too prevalent. Sure, there's some bots and stuff, but it's too easy to dodge them and not a ton of ways to hide it. Usually good for a laugh, block, then back to matchmaking.
@Zochmenos until the servers are shut off, and half the game no longer functions. Even tutorial progress requires a konnection in XI.
@Serpenterror yeah I miss MK just being sleazy as in sensational, not as in Cash for Gold money grubbing.
I hope it isn't coming by cloud only. Nintendo seems to be trying that more and more now and I wouldn't be surprised if it was cloud only. If it is I'll just get it on my Xbox instead and not support the cloud version on the switch.
@LikelySatan Sure, that's one of the downsides of waiting (you get less time with full dev support), but it IS cheaper to wait. Folks are looking to save money on DLC, not necessarily be current.
@Savage_Joe It's not a feat to degrade graphical settings to the point it can run on the Switch.
@Zochmenos yeeeeeah, I am not going to be pressing the "I Believe" button anytime soon regarding games with online requirements for single-player. We are on the slippery slope here and everyone's just playing along. I'm good. WB are scum.
Awesome can't wait for this
@LikelySatan Hey, I dig that. There's plenty of people in here who clearly have no intention of buying MK and just want everyone to know.
@anoyonmus I meant for the switch version. Does would more than likely not have rollback. Most major fighting games don't have it and site hardware issues because of it.
@Simon97 well if you like to play with the worse looking version. Good ahead. Either way it going to be interesting which fight game comes out on top. One is assist based fighting the other is better version of SF 5 with more options. But we still need gameplay for MK to really find out how fast its going to be and how many options their will be. From what I could tell MK11 is the worse version according to MK fans.
Forget PS4 and Xbox One versions holding up the future of modern gaming.. it’s the Switch I’m more worried about now.. Nintendo needs to get on the ball with a moderately powered system.. I.E: TotK could be running sooo much better (still amazing though)
Awful title but I'm kind of excited about the prospect of a reboot, MK11 was way too ridiculous even for MK standards.
@WolfyTn Worried about what? If anything, they are taking their time with it because they want to guarantee its success as much as possible. Rest assured it's on the way.
MK11 is one of my most played Switch games. That said, I am still nervous to see how this looks and runs.
I want the actual first Mortal Kombat game on Switch!
@Zochmenos yep! And I'll keep reminding people about them rebalancing the store to screw over players after reviews hit, putting ads on every screen to buy more characters, and adding a beg on the TITLE SCREEN OF MK XL to go get MK XI...even if XI was already installed.
@Batfan2425 It’s not a cloud version. According to the website, the game is coming out on PS5, XSX/S, PC and Nintendo Switch.
Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive will be working on the Switch port.
QLOS will be working on the PC port.
Good to see the Switch still getting major third party releases after over 6 years.
It's Mortal Kombat. What were you expecting? Rainbows and unicorns? "Oh dear, this notoriusly violent and gory game is unsurprisingly violent and gory"
@MrLinkTathapast tell me of other UE4 games that go above 30fps on Switch
@jco83 that’s what MK is known for… 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
@LikelySatan Those are all very serious issues. Thank you.
In the worst case scenario, this could be a cloud version but seeing that MK11 ran decent on Switch, I won't be surprised if the devs manage to get this game running well on an already aging system.
@Gumdrop there's a difference between campy gore and mean spirited...ness? I think MK crossed that line w X but mostly found the tone again in XI.
@Zochmenos they are to me. I play games to escape all that.
@dimi I am thinking that there will be a dedicated Switch specific version for this game but I could be wrong.
@Ashina not a cloud version. You can check the website
Hollup, so this is a brand new game?! I though it was actually the first Mortal Kombat game
But is this a cloud version or One of those Digital only physical games when it comes to switch like MK11 was? If so that’s a skip from me actually.
@OwenGamer22 yes it is a brand new game.
I’m as Nintendo as the next guy, but a $70 fighting game on an underpowered (most likely close to EOL) console, is a stretch.
I will pass. Was hoping for something new not another reboot.
@Ryne-Gaia not a cloud version
Everyone who says it will be a cloud version, IT IS AS OF NOW NOT A CLOUD VERSION.
Please read the FAQ. It says
"All versions of Mortal Kombat 1 are built on NetherRealm Studios technology with oversight by NetherRealm. The NetherRealm team is developing the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game.
QLOC is developing the Steam and Epic Games Store versions of the game. Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive are developing the Nintendo Switch version of the game."
If it is gonna be a cloud version, why do they need Saber Interactive (who ported Witcher 3 to Switch) and Shiver Entertainment (who ported MK11 to Switch and did a fine job on it) to do a cloud version when NRS could make the cloud version themselves? Why ask two porting studios that are known for decent ports on Switch to make a cloud game on Switch?
@LikelySatan Like I said, I dig whatever personal reasoning gets you there. I was suggesting, more broadly, that fighting game guys who don't want to buy DLC sound a lot like Madden people who could simply wait another year (cycle) and save all the money they almost certainly have but are definitely morally opposed to spending.
@N8tiveT3ch according to FAQ
it says MK1 will have rollback netcode. Doesn't say the platforms it will be on.
Hi there fellow gamers.
What a year for fighting games it´s turning out to be.
With Street Fighter 6 on June, Mortal Kombat 1 on September and Tekken 8 on the horizon.
Now for a proper gameplay trailer...... Maybe on the Playstation showcase next week orr the Xbox showcase next month or even the Summer Game Fest perhaps??? Hopefuly in one of these three events.
Can´t wait to see more.
Cheers, and happy gaming folks
@GamingFan4Lyf according to Wikipedia, it is Unreal Engine 4.
But its Wikipedia so take it with a grain of salt.
@RaZieLDaNtE its funny how Street Fighter and Tekken abandoned Switch but Mortal Kombat decided to remain on Switch.
@Zochmenos I don't think Madden types have any qualms about scummy monetization.
@anoyonmus Since developers really like money, that's where a lot of the skepticism is coming from. There will be a multitude of compromises for the Switch release, it's just a matter of seeing what those will be.
@Ralizah I purchase the last one on switch. I would have to wait to play this on the next Nintendo console. It was hard to play the last one.
@LikelySatan I doubt the communities are actually all that different.
@Zochmenos my guess is that it might be a dedicated Switch specific version and probably built from the ground up for the Switch. Seeing as NRS is directly tackling the PS5 and XSX/S versions. QLOC is dealing with PC port. Shiver and Saber Interactive are developing the Switch version.
My GOD Scorpion and Sub-zero look horrendous.
@Zochmenos lol. K bro.
@anoyonmus It's all unknowable until more info.
Oh great, I guess we're now using Microsoft naming konventions. I guess the next one is MK Series K?
Is it unknowable that NRS is developing the PS5 and XSX/S versions? Is it unknowable that QLOC is developing the PC port. Is it unknowable that Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive are developing the Switch version?
@LikelySatan Yes, "lol" it is. Great job. Talk to you later, no doubt.
@anoyonmus No. It's unknowable if it'll turn out. I get that you hope it does, but there's certainly room for skepticism.
@Zochmenos im not expecting it to turn out well. Im just waiting for wait and see. Its fine to be skeptical if it will run good or not but I am saying that it is not a cloud version based on what it said on the MK1 website.
@RaZieLDaNtE maybe in the Playstation showcase because its koming next week.
@anoyonmus I hear you. Personally, I think anything is possible, but there's certainly not an early indication on the NRS FAQ page. I hope it's awesome myself; we all find out together.
@GamingFan4Lyf What are the specs of your laptop? I’m thinking about getting myself a Surface Book for College and light gaming.
Ya, I'm getting tired of these cinematic-only trailers. They never bothered to show any game play whatsoever which makes it nearly impossible for me to get excited. But if it's anything like MK11, than I probably won't even bother. My fighting game days have mostly come to an end anyways, with the exception of Smash Bros. Even though Ultimate was a predictable by the numbers safe sequel. It may be the best smash bros, but it had the least impact on me by far compared to the likes of Melee, and even Brawl & Smash Bros. U.
At this point, I'd be far more stoked if they released the Arcade versions of MK, MKII & Ultimate MKIII on Switch. This new MK1 is just going to compromised up the ying yang vs the PS5 & XSX version anyways.
Who needs gameplay when you can unnecessary and potentially misleading cinematics instead, amirite?
No gameplay is a bummer, but I'm glad this is coming to Switch.
Phewwww I’m not sure why I didn’t realize that would escalate so quickly. My god. Anyway I loved MK11 and I look forward to this. The fatalities really do bother me these days though so I usually don’t use them.
Glad to see, but what an absolutely stupid name. Guess they're taking a page out of Microsoft's playbook. Also, I wonder what happened to that Switch port of the MK trilogy that was announced a few years back? IIRC it was the arcade versions of 1-3. Damn shame as I'm all about that classic MK.
@N8tiveT3ch Street Fighter 6 is also having some new assists if you try the demo. Easier to perform some special moves now.
I could not play it on Ps5 without buying a PS5. I have not seen a PS4/PS5 comparison.
I could perhaps play it on Xbox Series S if i have not sold my Series S by then, but then i would need to buy the game digitally. I want some cash so i am thinking about selling my Xbox Series S.
I think Street fighter is the better game but it is a matter of taste ai guess. Mortal Kombat is pobably better now compared to the early days with pre rendered photograph graphics.
It's got 99 problems and it's name is 1
@Ashina I do not think any developer would dare put a fighting game on the cloud. They would never hear the end of it.
@anoyonmus Hey there friend.
Maybe both Capcom and Bandai Namco didn´t want to outsource their game to another developer because that would mean spending more money.
Although, from the SF6 prize pool, i don´t think Capcom is low on income, at the very least.
I could see WB and Netherrealm showing gameplay at the Playstation Showcase. They have a good relationship.
Just have to wait 7 days to see if it´s true.
Cheers, and happy gaming
The gruesome and gory content of movies and games is just sad now. No one seems to have any imagination now and these types of injuries are not logical in any sense.
Once the trailer got extremely gory I noped out. I’m fine with some gore (I LOVE the Doom games) but this is just WAY too much.
@JONOFTHEJONS Mine is a few years old. It has an i7 at 3.2Ghz, 16GB RAM, and an Nvidia 1060 6GB
Oh boy that'll be a mess. MK11 is one of the only games I wish I could refund. Looks and plays so poorly on Switch.
@vio it’s a sequel to MK11 but also like a soft reboot I think.
Think of it like how Scream 2022 is in fact Scream 5 and is a sequel to Scream 4 but it also is a soft reboot.
@TimeGuy that’s how Mortal Kombat is though….
@anoyonmus I know. Guess the series just isn’t for me.
@Zidentia it's Mortal Kombat when has the gore ever been logical? In MK2 Liu Kang turned into a dragon and ate a guy. This is a series of the illogical gore filled fun.
Removed - flaming/arguing; user is banned
What a huge surprise! Firstly, the game is apparently a reboot of the franchise, which sets a new bar for what to expect.
Secondly, it's coming to Switch! I really doubted this would happen since this is being developed as a new generation console game. My guess is that it's going to be very different visually, but will likely still be worth it. Of course, it could also mean something more ambitious for Nintendo consoles, but it's confiming to the Nintendo Switch so that's a big deal.
MK11 was horrible for Switch owners. The online aspect was too involved and I prefer to have my Switch ready to go for on the go
Wasn't 9 or X also supposed to be a reboot? And we just had the movie too. Not gonna complain if it's good, just wish it wouldn't launch in such a crowded fighting game year which already has SF6 and Tekken 8.
Great year for gaming IPs! It’s nice that this game will be on the Switch too but let’s face it, I hope they overcome the developer challenges that other companies deal with in porting over current-gen hardware techniques to our Nintendo console.
@Greenmanalishi I disagree. I think it was good for what it was on the Switch. The game played well: not comparable to the other consoles, but still an enjoyable port.
@Axecon I don’t think continuity matters much in these games. It’s already cool it’s being handled okay on SF and Tekken.
@magrane yeah… looking at the scores you have given other games… Everyone thinks they have good taste but that possibly can’t be true. Especially when it comes to MK11.
I wish they'd port the first three Mortal Kombat games (plus Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy) to Switch. Would they have to renegotiate with the original actors and actresses?
Removed - flaming/arguing
Why stop there? Why not mention the Xbox series X and PC version as well since we're randomly naming other places to play and all that.
Hey man, don't knock it. That's exactly what helped sony get a foothold in the gaming arena if we're keeping it a buck.
TBH when rumors were swirling about this game, I though I'd heard it was gonna be a retro remake, and my mind went to a beautiful pixel art beat 'em up (think shredder's revenge) but with 16 bit executions. Imagine juggling a severed head to rack up combo points, rather than the enemies body? I'd love to see some handcrafted pixel art rather than mocap sprites.
The realistic gore is getting to the point where it's a turn off. Still, I enjoyed mk9 quite a bit. I just hope they don't slow down the fights with zoomed in xray crap again.
I'm intrigued nonetheless.
I‘ve never gotten the series appeal and I guess I never will. It‘s about killing people in the cruelest way possible. How is that so motivating? Guess I have to try my hands at serial killing one day and it will click with me
Let me look at my crystal ball for the future Switch reviews:
"Good, but, better on other platforms..."
@Cashews holy moly you were not wrong hahaha
@zander_dale I know right?!?
Yep…bought. I was actually waiting for someone in the trailer to yell “Mortal Kombat!”
@kalosn Based on the FAQ, I think this could be like a Switch specific version and also it is being developed by Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive
@Duffman92 By that logic you like to stomp on innocent turtles if you enjoy Mario games. I understand that gore isn't for everyone (I don't enjoy that but I also don't mind it that much) but it's also a pretty good fighting game. It's not that hard to understand the appeal even if it isn't your thing.
I just hope the Switch devs use the upscaling technology that it is available ATM, MK 11 on switch while a fun game, have some questionable graphics decisions
@Tempestryke Ignore him- if he was really a fan, he wouldn't be Cashews, but rather Kashews.
I'm actually quite optimistic this game will run well on the Switch. Unreal Engine 5 has much better optimization for weaker hardware (at least, based on what I've seen so far) and this game was developed with a Switch version in mind.
My minimum standard for this game is 60fps. They managed to do that for Mortal Kombat 11, so with a better engine and more experience with optimization, they'll definitelg get this one down.
It's mental to me that Mortal Kombat is on Switch but Street Fighter 6 and Tekken 8 aren't. Why the hell is that?!
And it will be dumbed down, ugly, and play terribly. These next-gen games just can't make it on the Switch and be good. Especially for $70.
@anoyonmus I wasn't taking MK9 (which would have been neat to have on Switch regardless of my own lukewarm interest in the series as well, but at least it's been long portable on Vita), but my jokes are dumb enough to woosh over people's heads.😅 Puns all the moreso.
And good news to see Saber on the job here, one of the Switch port sorcerers by now.
I couldn't be anymore happy that Mortal Kombat will be available for The Switch, this is awesome.
