NetherRealm has updated Mortal Kombat 11 on the Nintendo Switch and PC, and the patch notes reveal a bunch of tweaks and improvements.

Fans of Mortal Kombat 11 on the Nintendo Switch and PC were given an update on May 9, and here are the patch notes that disclose what was added and fixed.

Although it sold nearly 50% fewer physical copies than Mortal Kombat 10, NetherRealm’s eleventh instalment has seen the series’ biggest launch.

There’s been some controversy surrounding the title and its excessive grinding and use of microtransactions, but the developer’s previous updates for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have addressed these issues (even if update 1.04 did force players to grind by removing a couple of exploitable glitches in the Krypt).

NetherRealm has now improved the Nintendo Switch and PC versions of Mortal Kombat 11.
