As a Switch owner, it's deeply embarrassing and i'm thankful for having the option of PC, where I don't need to pay online for objectively nothing and play a version that looks a generation behind.

How they could release this with a straight face is baffling.

I don't think anyone was expecting this to be on par with PS4 and Xbox. Switch owners will probably be happy they have a version to begin with.

What? I think you tried too hard for that edgy humour. This doesn’t really make much sense.

Anyway I think this looks decent enough for the Switch and for many people will likely be enough to have a game like this to play on the go.

@uninspiredcup: Why does this matter to you? It's common knowledge compromises had to be made to ensure the game runs 60 FPS both docked and handheld. I, personally see nothing wrong here as long is there's options to either go full graphics or go full portable.

Besides, while having nice fidelity is a big plus, it's not gonna help you win the Mortal Kombat Tournament from Shao Khan.

Ugly. Something I realized about switch ports is that on video it can look good but once u get ur hand on it, its ugly as everyone tells you so.

The YouTube video did not state if it's actual on-screen footage from handheld or docked mode. Regardless, I felt that MK11 is one of the better Switch 3rd Party games developed.

Hopefully this video is rendering at least a 1080p version. Who releases 720p video in 2019?

And yeah, exclusives for the Switch are great, but playing at such an ungodly low resolution/settings for multiplats on a 300 dollar system would make me feel royally ripped off, as I've said before.

Honestly, if it wasn't for the exclusive games this thing would be in a charity shop.

Not even a good portable device, like carrying around a brick.

I don't see the problem - there have been a few threads of this sort on here recently but:

1) people don't have to buy it, and obviously if the graphics matter that much to you you don't need to "debase" yourself with it

2) I think people who DO want these ports on their Switch expect... a Switch game. And that's what they'll be getting. It's not a PS4. I think we all know that. It's MK on a Switch.

3) we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that games are meant to be fun. Mortal Kombat used to be sprites. It was ok. It's still ok. I'd rather play the originals than a lot of tripe these days. So the big question for me would be "Switch port? Is it still a fun version?". I'd be much more worried about trash framerate and how it plays, personally.

Of course I like pretty graphics. I'm not pretending I don't. But it's a Switch game.

If the frame rate is decent on the Switch version I’d consider it a win. It’s expected to be graphically downgraded but as a 2d fighter its frame rate, controls, and fun that matter.

If there were PS3/360 ports anymore that's probably about what they'd look like, or close to it. Turrible.

It looks good in motion, I think it looks great considering the Switch's hardware. I still wouldn't get it, but it looks decent and the fps looks solid for those who want to play it on the go.

The Switch is smaller than the PS4/Xbox One case the game comes in. The game also has to run on 18W max in handheld mode. The fact MK11 can run on this thing is pure magic. Couple that with the fact you can take the game with you ANYWHERE... Yeah, some of y’all need you quit with all the hate.

@uninspiredcup: Playing MK11 while taking a dump is the only thing I need to justify the price tag. MK11, with most settings dialed back, but portable isn’t a bad thing. I consider that a far less mediocre experience than playing the middling base PS4/Xbox One versions while tethered to a TV.

The Switch version is looks like to be on par with MK vs DC and for better or worst, that's mighty impressive and the if I wanted to play MK11 on the go, I'd totally would buy it but sadly, all my money went towards the PC version and I'll probably will pick up the Switch version whenever the Komplete Edition releases with all DLC included.

WTF do you expect from something slightly larger than a cell phone?

Anyway, I think the point is sort of being missed here: whole great thing about the Switch is it's portability and "play anywhere" deal; I mean if you and your buddy both have a Switch, you can play against each other while, idunno, drinking beer at a pub or having some coffee or sitting on the top of a mountain while camping.

With that said, it is pretty ugly.

This shouldnt even be running on the switch at all.

It's funny that you call Switch gamers kids. Some of us leave the house, go on business trips, go on long car rides/commutes etc. You can stay next to your wall outlet, hooked up to your TV, or playing your games on current streaming tech. I will gladly play these 3rd party games, compromises and all, in the name of portability. When I want high fidelity, I can go to one of my 7 current gen consoles or one of my 2 gaming PC's. But when I'm laying in bed trying not to wake up my wife or kids, taking the browns to the super bowl, or sneaking in a quick game or two when I'm working from home. Nothing beats the Switch.

And again, it's smaller than a bluray case, operates on less than 18W and is a third of the price of most smart phones. I don't understand what some of you are expecting.

Since I play Switch as a portable mainly, I think it looks just fine. (not that I would get this anyway I'm more of a Street Fighter 2 player myself)

This is why I get most games on Switch. People acting somehow surprised that the PC version would look way better is......odd.

The fact it's possible to literally post a visual representation of a fetus to that of a 8 year old boy to show just how far back Nntendo is, yea, you should feel insulted.

Thankfully I have a PC, which, even with 4+ year old hardware, no problem.
