Mortal Kombat 1: Severe Problem Discovered With A Console Version Of The Game?!

Fans are reporting poor graphics and visual flaws in the Switch port of Mortal Kombat 1, to the point where they are telling players to avoid it.



Switch owners are less than happy with the graphical performance of Mortal Kombat 1 on Nintendo’s console. NetherRealm’s latest 2D brawler title won’t be fully released until later this week. But fans who pre-ordered a premium edition of MK1 can now play it thanks to early access. The game’s reception has been positive overall. Critics have praised the lightning-fast combat, stunning graphics and various fun game modes.

When it was announced that Mortal Kombat 1 would be coming to Nintendo Switch alongside PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, many fans expressed concern that the weaker hardware on Nintendo’s console wouldn’t be able to handle the graphical intensity shown in the game’s pre-release trailers.

Especially since NetherRealm decided not to release the game on the similarly powerful PS4 and Xbox One.

Now that more and more people can play Mortal Kombat 1, it seems that the fears about the Nintendo Switch version have been confirmed. As reported by Dexerto, players are complaining about poor graphics and visual flaws. Although MK1 is supposed to run at a steady 60 FPS on the Switch, a TikTok user named johniibo showed off some questionable and buggy graphics of the port. It was very similar to games from the early 2000s. The problem wasn’t specific to a particular console. Johniibo tried playing MK1 on another Switch – and got the same results.

Johniibo’s claims were soon shared on Twitter, with countless users backing up his claims with their own bad experiences and advising people not to buy Mortal Kombat 1 for Nintendo Switch.

In addition to the poor overall graphical quality, some of MK1’s reported bugs are also said to affect gameplay. Because of this, gamers perceive the Switch version to be inferior compared to those playing on other platforms. The Nintendo Switch’s in-game capture feature does not work in this case. This makes it difficult for players to share high-quality footage of the game in action without external hardware.

While early-access gamers will enjoy MK1 on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X, those who purchased the game on Nintendo Switch will experience underwhelming visuals and potentially game-breaking bugs. NetherRealm recently released an update patch for Mortal Kombat 1 ahead of its full release this week. So, there’s a chance that some of the issues experienced by Switch players will be addressed. However, the sheer volume of complaints is a worrying sign for MK1 running on Nintendo Switch.
