Mortal Kombat 11 is also available on the Nintendo Switch and while it looks fine in gameplay, the fatalities end up making it look more like a joke compared to the other console versions.
Fatalities are always a fun part of the combat system in Mortal Kombat. While they can be brutal and full of an abundance of gore, they are satisfying to pull off on opponents at the end of every match. In the case of the Nintendo Switch version, the downgraded visuals, unfortunately, make it look more like a joke.
The above image is just one of the worst examples that we were able to find when it comes to showing how the fatalities are impacted on the Nintendo Switch. The game has a cartoon-like appearance on Nintendo Switch compared to the realistic visuals seen on the PS4, Xbox One, or PC.
The lighting being downgraded wouldn’t be an issue if the core artwork of the game is directly impacted thus the fighter models that end up performing these fatalities don’t hold up well when the screen is zoomed in on them during these segments.
This video shows all the fatality cinematics compiled for Mortal Kombat 11. You can get an idea of how they hold up on the Nintendo Switch in this video. The difference in the docked mode or the portable mode mainly boils down to the resolution of the game. It is also important to mention that the game targets 60 FPS on the Nintendo Switch, which might be the reason for such low-quality character models.
There is a huge leak spoiling all of the upcoming season pass DLC characters that were discovered through a datamine of the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 11. It also has the smallest file size among all other consoles and PC. The game will be out on April 23 while the reviews are set to drop tomorrow on April 22.
