Mortal Kombat Vita Now Official
NetherRealm studios was one of the first studios to break the news of a new PSP a couple of years back, and it seems the studio is finally ready to talk about what they’ve been making for Sony’s new portable. Mortal Kombat is a version of 2011’s well received revival, and it’s coming to the Vita with “several new features”. What those features actually are hasn’t been announced yet, with announcements due over the coming months. The game is scheduled for Spring 2012, so we shouldn’t have long to wait until we find out what those features actually are. If you’re a bit impatient though, you can pop along to any of the Vita Hill Social Clubs happening soon and play it for yourself, you lucky devils.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Mortal Kombat will ship for PlayStation®Vita system in Spring 2012. Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the game delivers an experience designed specifically for on-the-go gaming with brand new gameplay features and content developed exclusively for the new handheld device.
“The NetherRealm team is committed to making sure that we follow up the success of 2011’s Mortal Kombat with an equally compelling experience on the PlayStation Vita,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “The original game content and new features we developed for the PlayStation Vita will provide gamers with the best fighting game experience available on the new mobile platform.”
Selling more than three million units worldwide in 2011, Mortal Kombat became the highest-selling fighting game of the year and has won numerous “Best Fighting Game of 2011” awards including Spike TV’s 2011 Video Game Awards, Official Xbox Magazine and GameTrailers.com.
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.
