Mortal Kombat 1 admitted it hasn’t had the best debut on Nintendo Switch this week, with series creator and director Ed Boon mentioning how this version will “absolutely” get an update at some stage.

If that wasn’t already enough to deal with, Nintendo fans have now spotted a Steam notification for what appears to be an achievement in the official Mortal Kombat 1 Switch trailer. The video was uploaded directly to Nintendo’s YouTube channel before being set to private.

At the 1:52 mark in the now-deleted video, a notification appeared at the bottom right of the screen during a mini-game that included the Steam UI, the Mortal Kombat logo, and the text “Achievement 38” and “Dialogue 38”. Obviously, it’s not a big deal, but it’s also not a great look, as some fans have noted while it’s meant to be a game trailer for a Switch release.

Again, the good news is that Nintendo has now taken notice and the video has been set to private. Luckily, as you can see above, we took a screenshot.

For anyone who wants to know more about the Switch release, be sure to check out our Nintendo Life review. Although it needs some work on Nintendo’s hybrid platform, the gameplay itself is absolutely fantastic.
