Mortal Kombat 11 is shaping up to be the Nintendo Switch’s most ambitious AAA release on the system for 2019. Series producer Trevor Traub recently stated in an interview that the Switch version is looking to be “really fantastic.” He also shared his opinions on how it feels with joy-cons rather than a traditional controller:

“I actually really like the Switch build. I like the Joy-Con controller more than I thought. We’re trying to reach as many people as we possibly can. So we’re going to take that opportunity.”
