Thanks to Neverunplaying for the heads up!


I'd just seen that, they left that ending out of The Game Awards trailer showing which platforms it will be on.

That crap music alone made me forget this was a thing... But sy what? MK11 to Switch? Well isn't that nice? GGuessing it's on the MKX engine. Not a hard guess really hehe.


That's pretty neat. If its anything like X or XL, its gonna be pretty trash. God, I tried playing those this weekend and I dont know how people do it.

so unexpected yet so awesome!!

What are the chances of them fitting this game on a cart? I'm expecting to be screwed out of another potential purchase here.

Also preorder locked characters. Joy.

Odds on Switch users getting shafted with a required download because crap capacity carts from Nintendo?

You need to get over it.

Are you ever happy about anything?

Nah he’s right about this one. I’m expecting requires download which sadly is a dealbreaker for me and many others. I wish 3rd parties would opt for those 32GB carts when needed. And yes I’m aware of the economics behind it. Still, I won’t buy the game, physical or otherwise, when this happens.

If you understand the economics then you understand why its there. It's not ideal by any stretch of the imagination but its either additional download or the game doesn't come out on Switch. Which to you, isn't a problem because you weren't planning on buying it anyway if it had an additional mandatory download, but to everyone else and the state of third-party support for the Switch, it is a far worst option. Additional download or NO AAA THIRD PARTY SUPPORT. Which is a better compromise?

Carts being stupid or not, software is software and I feel that the game being on the Switch at all is way better than it being not on it. I'm only worried if it'll run at the same framerate since SNK Heroines cheaped out, but if MK11 runs at the same speed at the cost of a download I'll take that any day over 30FPS clunk, unless this runs at that on all platforms

Second smash dlc character: Scorpion.

Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I expect more meltdown hahahaha.

Hah! Never going to happen but boy would that be awesome.

Don’t forget that we got Bayonetta

I hope the Switch version stays true to its roots and doesn’t have blood (kidding)
