While Mortal Kombat is one of the most historic fighting franchises in the world, its history with Nintendo isn’t as amazing. The series kicked things off with an SNES port that watered-down the signature violence and then the last decade has seen the series avoid Nintendo systems entirely. Considering this, along with Switch’s weaker hardware compared to the competition, it was a pleasant surprise to see the newest game, Mortal Kombat 11, announced for the system. Of course, there is always a concern over how the game will run on Switch, but producer Trevor Traub seemed optimistic in a recent interview with Game Revolution.

“There are special geometry reductions that happen to make it work on the Switch. The end product is actually really fantastic. We’re actually not developing it in house; it’s being developed by Shiver Studios. They’re developing it at the same time as us so it’s sort of a co-development. There is no lead SKU.”

Traub added that these changes mean the game should run without any slowdown and that the option to play with just the Joy-Cons actually works better than expected.

Mortal Kombat 11 releases on April 23.
