With just a couple weeks left until the release of Mortal Kombat 11, a file size info for the Nintendo Switch version of the game has surface. It seems that the day one patch update file size will be more than double of the base game size.
The reveal was made by a twitter user @NWPlayer123 who shared the news.

The base game sits at 6.54GB, while the day one update will be 15.9GB. As of right now, it is unclear what the update does or what its contents are. In addition, it is also unclear if there are day one updates on the other platforms as well.
Some have speculated that this might be a situation where Warner Bros. may have decided to go with a smaller 8GB game card release for retail, and then add the other necessary files to be available as day one patch. While this may very well be the case, we cannot know for sure.
NetherRealms has not confirmed any such information as of yet, but we expect more details to come out the closer we get to launch date of Mortal Kombat 11. We might get details about any day one patch coming for other platforms, the sizes and contents it may have.
In other news, NetherRealm just revealed a new character to be included in the roster of the game. Kitana is a returning character who came with a 1 minute TV sport that showed her wielding her signature blades. The short video manages to show a little bit of Kitana’s combat and moves, plus the way she deals damage.
Kitana joins the other 21 confirmed fighters in the game that include Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax, Noob Saibot, Cetrion, Kotal Kahn, Jacqui Briggs, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Kano, Kabal, D’Vorah, Jade, Johnny Cage, new character Geras, and DLC fighter, Shang Tsung.
Mortal Kombat is set to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on 23 April, 2019. Post your comments below.
