Mortal Kombat 11 Switch Trailer Shows Fights On The Go

Bloody mayhem while riding the bus.


Mortal Kombat 11 is releasing on the Nintendo Switch, marking the first MK game on a Nintendo system since the series reboot. We noted in a recent hands-on preview that the Switch version was a noticeable visual downgrade, but that it played smoothly and kept the fighting consistent. A new trailer shows both of those aspects in action.

It's no surprise that the official Switch trailer emphasizes the on-the-go aspect. The trailer (above) shows a piece of a cutscene before pulling back and showing gameplay on a smaller Switch window playing footage of the fights. It's difficult to see due to the smaller screen size but the fights are a little low-fi compared to what you may have gotten accustomed to seeing in other gameplay trailers and Kombat Kasts.
