We’re just a short time away from being able to get Borderlands 2 for PS Vita when it releases on May 13th (the PS Vita Bundle is out May 6th). Giving us a bit more information about the game is the PS Blog, who went hands-on with Borderlands 2, revealing that co-op will only support up to 2 players, rather than 4:

We checked in with the SCEA Third Party Production team, who confirmed that while they strived to include four-player co-op in the game, they made a decision late in their development cycle to focus on providing the best two-player-only co-op experience possible. As a result, the maximum co-operative player count for Borderlands 2 on PS Vita is capped at two.

Saying Borderlands 2 PS Vita is “generally hovering in the vicinity of 30 frames-per-second,” they also detailed that the controls in the game are customizable, as shown in this screenshot:

In case you’ve forgotten, Borderlands 2 on PS Vita supports Cross Save with the PS3 version, and also includes the following DLC: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, the Psycho and Mechromancer Character Classes, the Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Upgrade Pack, and the Collector’s Edition pack.
