The Mortal Kombat 1 switch version will be fixed after the rough launch according to games’ director. The switch version for those that don’t know was reportedly launched with missing content.
Mortal Kombat 1 Switch Version
Mortal Kombat 1 has officially been launched on console and PC, but even at that the Nintendo Switch version of the game still appears to be missing important and key content.
The latest fighting game from NetherRealm reportedly left early access on September 19 and with that it is now available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, as well as on PC, and has so far been received quite well by critics as well as players alike. The game Mortal Kombat 1 was even scored four out of five stars in our review, but the reception to its Switch version on the other hand has been largely criticized.
Even prior to the official launch of the game in question, players reportedly called out the poor graphics and performance of the game, thus comparing it to its higher-quality counterparts on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, and the situation altogether since then has only gotten worse after it moved out of early access. And that is not to mention the fact that the latest Switch trailer seems to feature a Steam achievement too.
The Nintendo Switch Version Is Missing Key Content
The Nintendo Switch version as you should know is also missing key content from the Invasions mode of the game which is the single-player mode that features an RPG-style board game with challenges as well as missions to complete. It seems to show that only the introductory Cage Mansion stage is available on Switch at the moment, while the complete Season One on the other hand is available on other playable platforms (via GameSpot).
Warner Bros. Games has just recently responded to the said issue, and has therefore apologized for the missing content: “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 Addresses the Negative Criticism of the Game
Game director as well as series creator Ed Boon has also addressed the whole negative criticism of the Switch port and has reportedly promised that it will “absolutely be getting an update” (via BBC Newsbeat).
“And a number of the concerns of the issues that had come up will absolutely be addressed,” Boon reportedly added. “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.”
Players Are Not Too Happy With the Game Price Tag on the Switch
Some players on the other hand have also disapproved of the $70 price tag of the game on Switch, which as you should know is also the same as the PS5, Xbox, and PC retail prices – but Boon has now reaffirmed that the game in question will be improved for players that are still thinking about buying it on Nintendo’s console. He stated: “It will be supported, like we did with Mortal Kombat 11. Anything that we see that is not acceptable will absolutely be addressed.”
