If you own a Playstation Vita, chances are that you’re looking forward to getting your hands on Mortal Kombat for the system. A release date has been teased for “coming soon”, but nothing concrete so far.
Warner Bros. confirmed this morning that the game will release on the system on May 1st in North America. For fans not in North America, the game will be officially available as of May 4th, 2012.
“Mortal Kombat for PlayStation Vita system provides an on-the-go fighting game experience with brand new gameplay features and tons of new content developed exclusively for the revolutionary handheld system. Mortal Kombatdelivers an all-new Challenge Tower mode with 150 brand new missions, including Touchscreen Fatalities, Xrays and more.”
The Playstation Vita already has a strong list of titles available, and Mortal Kombat releasing for the system is a definite plus. Rather than being a straight port, the game features quite a few Vita-specific features.
