A twelve year drought ends when Mortal Kombat 11 brings the legendary fighting game series back to Nintendo consoles for the first time since Armageddon! The Switch version was on display at PAX East and IGN shared their thoughts on the playable port. Watch the verdict right here:

Innate limitations of the hardware have raised questions amongst a hesitant fanbase, but based on the impressions of IGN reviewers Brian Altano and Daemon Hatfield, the verdict is looking positive. The tailored experience of the handheld mode reports no glaring issues, with standard player preferences subject to the individual.

Creative Director Ed Boon told Gameinformer that the Switch port will run at 60fps. Initial concerns about a delayed released seem to have been put to rest, as well. IGN reports a same-day console launch on April 23rd for the Shiver Entertainment developed port.
