The launch of Mortal Kombat 1 on the Nintendo Switch hasn’t been the smoothest, as series creator and director Ed Boon has confirmed that the game will be receiving an update in the future. However, it seems that there’s another issue that has caught the attention of Nintendo fans.
In the official Mortal Kombat 1 Switch trailer, which was uploaded on Nintendo’s YouTube channel before being set to private, fans spotted a Steam notification. At the 1:52 mark of the now-removed video, a notification appeared on the screen during a mini-game featuring the Steam UI, the Mortal Kombat logo, and the text “Achievement 38” and “Dialogue 38”. While this may not be a major issue, it has raised concerns among some fans about the quality of the trailer for the Switch release.
Fortunately, Nintendo has acknowledged this issue and has made the video private. However, screenshots have been captured, preserving evidence of the Steam notification. Despite these setbacks, it’s worth noting that the gameplay itself in Mortal Kombat 1 on the Switch is highly acclaimed, despite needing some improvements specific to the hybrid platform.
This incident has raised questions about how the Steam notification ended up in a Nintendo trailer. It remains to be seen whether this was simply an oversight or if there is a deeper issue with the port of the game. Regardless, it’s essential for developers and publishers to ensure the accuracy and integrity of their promotional materials to maintain the trust of their fan base.
As fans eagerly await the update that will address the issues with Mortal Kombat 1 on the Nintendo Switch, it’s important to remember that setbacks can happen, and it’s crucial for developers to respond promptly and transparently to address any concerns raised by the community.
In the meantime, Nintendo fans and Mortal Kombat enthusiasts can share their thoughts on this incident and their experience with the Switch version of the game in the comments section.
