Mortal Kombat Puts The Moves On PS Vita With Exclusive Content

January 17, 2012Written by Anthony Severino

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have officially announced Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation Vita, complete with new gameplay features and exclusive content.

Mortal Kombat for Vita, is the same award-winning MK that you’ve been playing since last year on consoles, but tailored to be played on the go. MK for Vita will launch with several new features and platform-exclusive content, which Warner Bros. say will be revealed over the coming months. The same statement leaves us to believe that Mortal Kombat on Vita is still some ways off. No release date or window was given.

NetherRealm Studio head-honcho and co-creator of Mortal Kombat Ed Boon says it will be the “best fighting game experience available on the new mobile platform”.

If you recall, Shaun Himmerick, an executive producer for Warner working at NetherRealm Studios, was among the first to mention Sony’s then-nameless PSP successor by saying it was “a pretty powerful machine”. That was back in September of 2010, which could mean that MK for Vita has been in development for over a year, already.
