Mortal Kombat 11 Nintendo Switch version will release a month later but only in Europe according to Nintendo UK. Earlier, we reported many rumors regarding MK11’s delay in Europe and now the official site has confirmed it. Mortal Kombat series will make its debut on Switch with Mortal Kombat 11.
Nintendo UK currently lists Mortal Kombat 11 to be released on May 10 as compared to its release date on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC which is April 23rd. This pretty much confirms that the release date change is legitimate and not a rumor anymore.
Switch owners outside Europe are in luck as there’s no change of release date in the United States or any other locations. It looks like a distributor issue only in Europe. Despite the delay, you can pre-order MK11 from the official site and choose from different bundles available.
Release aside, the Switch version of the game is being developed by Shiver Entertainment but you don’t have to worry as it’s another studio owned by Warner Bros. The portable version of the game is going to be different from others as the producer has now confirmed.
Mortal Kombat on Nintendo Switch will have “special geometry reductions” but it’s nothing to worry about as the game still looks fantastic according to Trevor Traub. There’s no lead SKU of the game which means that NetherRealm Studios will not be focusing on a specific version.
The game for Nintendo’s hybrid console is in parallel development along with other versions which makes it a sort of co-development. In short, there will be graphics downgrades due to the limited hardware on the hybrid console.
NetherRealm Studios has now delayed the upcoming MK11 Kombat Kast till February 5th due to the extreme weather conditions in the United States. Mortal Kombat fans will have to wait for another week to know more about the game.
NetherRealm Studios puts safety first which is why they have made this decision and it’s a good move keeping the statements of “The National Weather Service” in mind which advises everyone to take shorter breaths and talk less until the weather gets better.
