The recent launch of Mortal Kombat 1 on Nintendo Switch unfortunately came with some disappointing omissions for fans. Most notably, the acclaimed new single-player Invasions mode is currently only available in a limited form compared to other platforms.
Mortal Kombat 1’s Invasions represents an ambitious expansion of the fighting title’s formula. Players navigate a Mario Party-style game board, completing various challenges and unlocking rewards along the way.
These challenges include standard fights, battles with modifiers, and classic mini-games like Test Your Might. Completing challenges earns cosmetic rewards like character skins, gear pieces, taunts, and more. Players also unlock Talismans that boost their fighters’ stats and skills.
While Invasions offers hours of unique content on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, the Switch version only contains a brief introduction sequence. Understandably, this has generated frustration among Nintendo players eager to experience the full mode.
WB Games Vows to Add Full Invasions Content Within Weeks
In response, WB Games has acknowledged the missing feature mode and promised it is actively being worked on for Switch. An official statement conveyed the developer’s commitment to deliver the complete Invasions Season 1 content to Nintendo players within weeks.
WB Games apologised for the unfortunate delay and is pushing to accelerate the release. While an exact date is still unconfirmed, the publisher stressed its focus on providing Switch users an optimal MK1 experience.
This isn’t the first post-launch hiccup affecting the Switch version, LEGO 2K Drive had numerous issues too amongst many other gaming titles. After release, some criticised the graphical performance compared to other platforms. It became something of a meme on social networking site Twitter at one point with it even trending in multiple countries. However, WB Games has built goodwill by being upfront about such issues.
For example, just before launch, they disappointed but informed fans that cross-play would not be ready as expected. This transparency gave players time to adjust expectations accordingly.
Overall, Mortal Kombat 1 has still managed to impress critics and fans alike as the latest evolution of the revered fighting series. Much of this success can be attributed to the developer’s open communication policies. Features such as the new kameo fighting system and the return of quitality’s for nostalgia have helped too.
Statement Offers Apology, But Players Impatient for Update
By acknowledging shortcomings like the Switch version’s delayed Invasions mode, WB Games demonstrates respect for players. Their stated commitment to rectify these problems is likewise appreciated.
Of course, the proof will be in how swiftly the promised content and optimisations arrive. But WB Games’ proactive updates are preferable to silence.
Nintendo fans remain eager to experience all Mortal Kombat 1 has to offer. Once the technical hurdles are cleared, the Switch community can finally enjoy the game’s innovations like Invasions to the fullest.
If WB Games stays true to their word, the wait should prove well worth it. Transparency and decisive action to address issues can go a long way towards soothing impatient fans.
