Mortal Kombat 1 developer NetherRealm Studios has now released its latest round of patch notes, and the new update contains several balance changes for a handful of fighters. Some of the most significant improvements included with the patch are the fixes to the issues that prevented players from using attacks against specific high parry special moves.

Of course, if you’re looking to improve at the game, then these patch notes may not be as useful as perusing our Mortal Kombat 1 General Shao guide. However, if you’re already adept at taking down other players and you want to know what changes have been made, then you can check out the entire update below.
