Though Nintendo may have fostered a reputation as a family-friendly consoles, the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 11 will pull no punches in its graphic content.
The latest trailer for the upcoming installment of the iconic fighting game franchise displays the title in all its gory glory, with Nintendo's console allowing players to take their fights on the go thanks to the Switch's ability to go portable.
The trailer is every inch as bloody as its counterparts on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with frenzied combat leading to the franchise's signature fatalities as victors dispatch their defeated opponents for good to visceral effect.
When the franchise's original installment was released on the Super Nintendo in 1993, it infamously replaced blood shed during fights with sweat and featured drastically less violent finishing moves. Judging by the trailer for the latest installment, censorship on violent content does not appear to be present in the Nintendo Switch version.
Mortal Kombat 11 is developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive. It will be released on April 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
