Despite being long in the tooth, many developers have continued to support the ageing Nintendo Switch due to its immense popularity. One such game is Mortal Kombat 1, which arrived on Switch despite otherwise being a current-gen console exclusive. It seems as though this has led to some issues both graphically and performance wise – with the game’s creator promising that “a number of the concerns of the issues that had come up will absolutely be addressed.”
With Mortal Kombat 1 now available for all to play, Switch owners have shared their complaints with the latest entry in the fighting game series, claiming that both performance and visuals are not up to snuff – especially considering the game costs £70 even on the Switch.
Speaking to BBC’s Newsbeat, Mortal Kombat’s creator Ed Boon addressed these concerns, promising that the Switch version will “absolutely be getting an update.”
He continued, “And a number of the concerns of the issues that had come up will absolutely be addressed,” adding that “It would have been ideal for us to have released the version that we absolutely wanted. But anything that we're finding a problem with is on our list and is going to be fixed.”
While it is understandable that porting Mortal Kombat 1 to the Switch was most likely no easy task, the fact that the game costs £70 on generations-old hardware is unfortunate to see. Hopefully at the very least MK1 does get the updates necessary to make the Switch version more worth its asking price.
