Well, it’s not as if the iconic fighting franchise hasn’t graced every single other handheld device since it arrived so many years ago. And to be honest, an updated Mortal Kombat on the Vita would be just the right incentive for me to actually buy the device, especially if I could take my fatalities on the road.
Warner Bros Interactive has confirmed that the smash hit revival of their infamous, and gory, fighting franchise will be making an appearance on the Sony handheld device, komplete with a few extras as well.
Warner Bros has said that the vita version of Mortal Kombat will have "Brand new gameplay features and content developed exclusively for the new handheld device” and that more "will be revealed in the coming months".
Rather scant details there, but I’m hoping that the touch-screen interface gives me a little more control when I perform a fatality. Mortal Kombat on the Vita is set for an American Spring release, or Autumn for us southern Hemisphere dwellers.
