Mortal Kombat 1 game director says the Switch version will be fixed after its rough launch

Mortal Kombat 1: Nintendo Switch Version Missing Key Content, Apologizes Issued

The highly anticipated release of Mortal Kombat 1 on PC and console has been met with disappointment for Nintendo Switch users. While the game has been well-received on other platforms, the Switch version has been widely criticized for its poor graphics and performance. In addition, the Nintendo Switch version is missing important content from the Invasions mode, leaving players with limited gameplay options.

Compared to its higher-quality counterparts on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, Mortal Kombat 1 for the Switch falls short in terms of visual quality and overall gameplay experience. Even the latest Switch trailer seems to display a Steam achievement, adding to the frustration of players.

One of the major missing features on the Switch is the Invasions mode, a single-player mode that offers an RPG-style board game with various challenges and missions. Currently, only the introductory Cage Mansion stage is available on the Switch, while the complete Season one is available on other platforms.

Warner Bros. Games has acknowledged the issue and issued an apology, assuring players that the missing content will be added to the Switch version. They state, “The full breadth of Invasions Season One content will be available on Switch in a matter of weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause Switch players and are working to make this update as quickly as possible.”

Game director and series creator Ed Boon has also addressed the negative feedback regarding the Switch port and promised that it will receive an update. Boon stated, “Anything that we’re finding a problem with is on our list and is going to be fixed.”

Aside from the missing content, some players have expressed disappointment with the $70 price tag for the Switch version, which is the same as the retail prices for PS5, Xbox, and PC. However, Boon reassures potential buyers that the game will be improved and any issues will be addressed, similar to the support provided for Mortal Kombat 11.

Despite the current setbacks, Nintendo Switch players can look forward to a more complete and enhanced Mortal Kombat 1 experience in the near future. Warner Bros. Games and the development team are committed to rectifying the issues and delivering a satisfactory gaming experience for Switch users.
