PlayStation Vita fans will soon have
their fill of gruesome deaths and disturbing fatalities, as Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have confirmed Mortal
Kombat will be out to play for Sony's handheld on May 1.
The enhanced Mortal Kombat port represents the
series' debut on the PS Vita. It will come loaded with the 2011
fighter, complete with all the DLC and exclusives that have been
released for the Sony version since. The port will also make full use
of the PS Vita's features, implementing the system's touch controls
and motion-sensing tech into the main campaign and a whole new PS
Vita-fied Challenge Tower. As for its online components, the port
will offer a slimmed down version of Mortal Kombat's multiplayer, but
still make room for one-on-one beatdowns.
Franchise fans were treated to even
more Mortal Kombat goodness last month with the release of the Mortal
Kombat Komplete Edition. Read our impressions of the reboot that
started it all in our Mortal Kombat Super Review.
