Mortal Kombat Mortal Kombat Announced for PlayStation Vita

Portable gaming just got a bit more brutal as NetherRealm Studios, the developers behind last year’s widely praised Mortal Kombat reboot, have announced plans for an enhanced port on the forthcoming PlayStation Vita.

In a triumphant return to the game’s original mature presentation, Mortal Kombat offers over-the-top fatalities and cringe-worthy X-ray moves. This latest iteration in the franchise brings the game back to a 2D fighting plane and introduces a number of new gameplay features including Tag Team, Challenge Tower and a deep story mode.  Several new features have been developed exclusively for Mortal Kombat for PS Vita system, which will be revealed in the coming months.

The announcement goes on to invite players to come test drive the game at one Vita Hill Social Clubs Sony is sponsoring through the end of February, though as a newly announced game, I’d recommend checking ahead to verify they’ve received their demo copies.
