The fall season is here, and game enthusiasts are already eyeing the new launches in the market. The world of gaming is no stranger to surprises with the launch of new games. One such gaming revelation has recently made waves on the internet.
Ever since the reveal of Mortal Kombat 1, fans have been wondering about its capability to run on Nintendo Switch. Join us as we navigate through the internet’s response to this gaming revelation.
In May 2023, NetherRealm Studios announced that Mortal Kombat 1 will be available on the Nintendo Switch instead of the older consoles. The game will officially release on 19th September 2023 for Nintendo Switch fans at $70. Mortal Kombat 1 has 23 characters and one final secret character, featuring Liu Kang becoming a Keeper of Time after his battle for Kronika’s Hourglass.
Recently, a TikTok video shared by user @johniibo briefly cast doubt on the Nintendo Switch’s ability to deliver a satisfying experience. The user shared his views on the game’s quality issue, which is quite low compared to other consoles’ previews.
Considering early gamer reactions, Mortal Kombat 1 is definitely playable on Nintendo Switch, but you will have to take a huge drop in quality. Yes, almost feels like playing WWE 2K18 on mobile. However, all these can change if the developer releases quick performance patches.
The highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 1 has finally made its way to the Nintendo Switch on 19 September 2023 for every user. But fans who already have their early access in their hands are testing the game, its quality, and everything while immersing themselves in this iconic fighting game.
The development of the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 was assigned to two accomplished studios: Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive. The Shiver Entertainment studios are highly recognized for their work on the port of Mortal Kombat 11. Whereas the Saber Interactive studios are well-known for their successful port of The Witcher 3. A great team can achieve anything, including an amazing game like Mortal Kombat 1.
In this part of the game, the story will feature Liu Kang, who is becoming the “Keeper of Time.”
Liu achieved this pedestal after his fight for the Kronika’s Hourglass. Mortal Kombat 1 will have 23 characters in the game with 1 secret character. Moreover, Liu Kang also has to fight with a mysterious enemy in this series. He will also reunite with Titan Kitana and Kung Lao.

People are also expressing their concern over the amount of access to the game. Getting such a bad quality, even after paying $70, is like a nightmare for game enthusiasts. Seems like the gaming journey for the Nintendo Switch users is a bit bumpy.
