Mortal Kombat 1 for Switch Promises Updates to Address Issues, Creator Says

The recently released Mortal Kombat 1 for the Nintendo Switch has received overwhelmingly negative reviews due to long load times, frame rate drops, and a significant visual downgrade compared to the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions. However, series creator Ed Boon has confirmed that the team is working on fixes to address these concerns.

In an interview with BBC Newsbeat, Boon expressed their commitment to improving Mortal Kombat 1 on the Switch, stating that the game will “absolutely be getting an update”. He acknowledged the issues that have been raised since its release and assured fans that anything problematic with the game is on their list and will be fixed.

Mortal Kombat 1 for the Switch was ported by Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive, rather than NetherRealm Studios, who developed the game. Boon emphasized that the ongoing support for Mortal Kombat 1 on the Switch will be similar to the support provided by Shiver/Saber in their previous port of Mortal Kombat 11.

Currently, there are several issues impacting Mortal Kombat 1 on the Switch. Therefore, it is expected that the promised updates will be delivered in a series of future patches. Fans eagerly await the improvements to enhance their gaming experience on the Nintendo Switch.
