The Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1 has finally received its first patch, with the much-maligned version finally adding in the full single player Invasion mode almost an entire month after its release.

Mortal Kombat 1 on the Nintendo Switch got attention for all the wrong reasons at launch, with fans dubbing it unplayable thanks to its many bugs and glitches. It was compounded by the fact that, despite the game costing the same price as the other console versions, it even shipped without a a fairly significant portion of the single player experience. It meant players on Nintendo’s console had a very different experience to what was read in many Mortal Kombat 1 reviews.

Invasions mode, new for Mortal Kombat 1, sees players traverse a giant game board peppered with fights and challenges, with new areas and boards added on a regular seasonal basis online in order to unlock rewards and new cosmetics for fighters. However, those on the Nintendo Switch could only play the first tutorial board at launch, with NetherRealm promising to add the rest of the content later. Now, that’s finally happened with the latest title update, along with a host of fixes and features to hopefully make the Nintendo Switch version of the fighter a bit more palatable.

The jury is out on whether the fixes will be enough to salvage the game for Nintendo Switch fans, but in the meantime you can check out the full patch notes, care of WB, below.
