Mortal Kombat 9 is a game that restarted the MK series even before Mortal Kombat 1 was released. You can play it on Android through the Vita3K emulator, for which a major patch was recently released with optimization, the addition of a motion sensor and other features.
I’m glad that even on the budget POCO X3 Pro Mortal Kombat 9 almost always produces 60 FPS, but there are drops of up to 30 frames or lower when using X-RAY abilities. I’m glad that shaders compile quickly, and there are no graphic or audio bugs.
Mortal Kombat 9 is another reminder to budget Android gamers that they can upgrade from PPSSPP to Vita3K to play newer-gen games. I will just note that the playability of PS Vita games can vary, so MK9 is not an indicator.
I recommend using a Bluetooth controller to play Mortal Kombat 9, as YouTuber EmuGaming did. This makes it much easier to do combos, and the screen is not blocked by touch buttons.
