Mortal Kombat 1 - the new game in the long-running series - is out.

But the Nintendo Switch version of the beloved beat-'em-up has been getting a bit of a kicking vs its Xbox and PlayStation rivals.

Fans have been posting side-by-side comparisons showing the gulf in graphics and criticising the game's overall performance.

Series creator Ed Boon tells BBC Newsbeat the hybrid console's version will "absolutely be getting an update".

"And a number of the the concerns of the issues that had come up will absolutely be addressed," he says.

"It would have been ideal for us to have released the version that we absolutely wanted.

"But anything that we're finding a problem with is on our list and is going to be fixed."

One of the common criticisms of the Switch version is its price - it costs the same as the more advanced PS5 and Xbox Series editions.

The game - a soft reboot of the series' timeline - was ported to the Nintendo machine by Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive, rather than main developer NetherRealm Studios.
