Revive the Classics with Mortal Kombat Advance on Nintendo Switch Online – Get Ready for the Ultimate Gaming Experience!

Nintendo Switch Online has been gradually expanding its libraries of various consoles like NES, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, and N64. While it has some classics like Metroid 2, Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Super Mario Land 2 in its Game Boy library, there’s one peculiar Mortal Kombat title that could be a part of it soon.

Released in December 2001 for the Game Boy Advance, Mortal Kombat Advance is a port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, which in itself is an updated version of Mortal Kombat 3. Although Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is one of the better entries in the franchise history, Mortal Kombat Advance received a wide range of criticism on its initial release back in 2001. The biggest issue with Mortal Kombat Advance was its control scheme, as the Game Boy Advance’s four-button layout simply offered insufficient flexibility for Mortal Kombat 3’s action. Apart from that, a despicable difficulty curve led to some of its stages being nearly impossible to beat.

Mortal Kombat Advance is widely considered to be among the worst entries in the entire Mortal Kombat franchise. However, for Mortal Kombat fans, it has become a fascinating oddity to observe because it’s impossible to buy now. Nintendo Switch Online is apparently planning to change that by adding Mortal Kombat Advance to Game Boy Advance library. It might not be a hit for the same reasons as the rest of Nintendo Switch Online’s libraries, but Mortal Kombat Advance would surely entice curious fans to try it out once again – even if it is just to laugh at its incompetence.
