Today, a datamine of the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 11 uncovered that the forthcoming fighting game from NetherRealm Studios will potentially include up to 13 DLC characters in total after the title has released to the public. This information came about due to the fact that pre-loading is now live for the Switch iteration of MK11, with some players having scoured through some of the game's files on the platform. Included in these discoveries is a 6.537 GB size for the base game on Switch, and an even heftier Day One patch.
According to the Twitter user NWPlayer123, Mortal Kombat 11's Day One patch for the Nintendo Switch is going to weigh in at about 15.9 GB, making the first official update for the title on the platform more than double the size of the actual base game. It's also worth noting that all of the aforementioned details are being taken from the Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition bundle for the Switch.
At this point in time, there's no telling whether or not players will be required to download and apply Mortal Kombat 11's Day One patch before they are actually able to play the game when it launches. For those with more unstable Internet connections, one can only hope that the Switch cartridge itself is going to be all that is needed of owners of the physical copy in order to play Mortal Kombat 11 on its release date.
The Nintendo Switch isn't the only platform that's been a medium for certain Mortal Kombat 11 information becoming open knowledge before the game's actual launch at the end of this month. As it so happens, MK11's trophy list for PS4 leaked online about a week ago, potentially unveiling some details in regards to the game's characters and more.

All things considered, it will be interesting to see just how large Mortal Kombat 11's file sizes for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One stack up in comparison to the fighting game's Nintendo Switch version. With the launch occurring in less than two weeks from now, we won't have to wait too much longer to find out.
Mortal Kombat 11 is scheduled to launch on April 23, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
