Mortal Kombat 11 will be the first installment in the series since 2007's Armageddon to feature on a Nintendo home console, but details of the Switch release have been scarce, with some outlets indicating delays. The latest Nintendo Direct update appears to address domestic concerns, promoting a standard release via Nintendo of America. Watch:

Mortal Kombat 11 features at the 30 mins 1 sec mark, promoted with a small, bloodless clip advertising the game's release for April 23rd. That's consistent with official dates provided by Warner Bros, and widely advertised for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Across the pond the story isn't so positive, with online retailers Amazon UK and GAME still listing the Switch version for a delayed release of May 10th. MK Online user SlickRick82 first called attention to the impending delay, posting to the forums late last year: "I work for GAME in the uk and can confirm the Switch version will launch 2 weeks later on May 10th."

Around the world, release dates remain inconsistent. Amazon Spain mirrors the British May 10th date, while Amazon Germany is listing availability for all versions starting April 19th. Australian retailers, including Amazon and JB Hifi, offer no release date at this time.

MK Online will continue to follow this story as it develops. International fans are encouraged to seek further information from local retailers when purchasing or pre-ordering the game.
