Ed Boon Confirms Fix For Player One Advantage Bug

So, as I’m sure many gamers all know, Mortal Kombat 1 was released recently to very mixed reviews. Personally, I think it is one of the best Mortal Kombats I have ever played. But that’s not to say it’s without its bugs and glitches. I’ve suffered the dreaded black screen more times than I can count in online play, and reptile has some pretty gnarly lip twitches at the end of a match. That’s just about as far as bug experiences have gone on my end.

But there’s another problem that isn’t as easily seen. Somehow, the person taking the role of player one is able to pull off combos that those who start on the right side can’t. I’m not sure exactly how this works, but it harkens back to MK9 and the terrible player one advantage bug that allowed the person starting on the left to come out on top when trading hits. To see this in action, check out this video by mrAPchem on youtube.

It didn’t take long for top dog Ed Boon to catch wind of this, and he has recently confirmed in a tweet that a fix for this bug is going live on 9/29. I look forward to seeing this game become the best it can be, and I hope NRS stays on top of fixing these types of things ASAP. I can’t help but wonder when or if they’ll address that Switch version though…
