It’s still a mystery as to why Mortal Kombat 1 is even on the Switch but it turns out it looks just about as good as you would’ve imagined.

Without naming any names, recent events have made it very clear what a publisher refusing to send out review copies ahead of time usually means. So the fact that the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 has turned out to be really bad is not going to be a surprise to anyone.

On Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, the game is very good but the fact that there is a Switch version at all is baffling, considering the game clearly requires a more powerful console and the series has no special significance to Nintendo hardware – that it would need to be on the Switch at all costs.

Review copies of the next gen versions were made available before the early access launch but not the Switch edition, which still has zero reviews on Metacritic. Fans, however, have been making it very clear just how bad the port is.

The really odd thing about the Switch version is that it does run at 60fps, so the gameplay is just as smooth as the other versions.

However, in order to get the game running at that frame rate the graphics have had to be greatly simplified, with no apparent facial animation.

Mortal Kombat 1 on the Switch is probably the funniest ripoff ever

Even that might not have been so bad but according to comments from fans the game is filled with bugs, many of which make the graphics look even worse.

Once again, you’ve got to wonder why the game exists at all on Switch. It doesn’t seem likely that it would’ve sold particularly well even if it looked as good as the other versions, and while Mortal Kombat 11 was also on Switch there’s never been any indication it was a big seller.

Before that, you’d have to go all the way back to Mortal Kombat: Armageddon on the Wii – which arrived a year later than the other versions – to find the last mainline Mortal Kombat on a Nintendo format.

It’s all very odd, but as confusing as it may be the main takeaway seems clear: leave the Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 well alone.

Crying at the Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1, Why didn’t they just wait for the next gen switch console, the fact it costs 70$ is robbery💀💀💀

After Mk11, Nintendo Switch not being able to handle Mortal Kombat 1 was fully expected, but something about the game costing the same as other platforms ($70💀) doesn’t feel right
