NetherRealm bringing bloody beat-'em-up franchise Mortal Kombat to PS Vita in spring 2012

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that developer NetherRealm is bringing classic tournament brawler Mortal Kombat to Sony's PS Vita sometime in spring 2012.

This forthcoming bloody beat-'em-up will feature "an experience designed specifically for on-the-go gaming", and will include "brand new gameplay features and content developed exclusively for the new handheld device". These nifty new features will be revealed in the "coming months".

"The NetherRealm team is committed to making sure that we follow up the success of 2011's Mortal Kombat with an equally compelling experience on the PlayStation Vita," Ed Boon, NetherRealm Studios creative director, said.

"The original game content and new features we developed for the PlayStation Vita will provide gamers with the best fighting game experience available on the new mobile platform."


Mortal Kombat will arrive packing over-the-top fatalities and equally cringe-worthy X-ray moves, as well as several new gameplay features: Tag Team, Challenge Tower, and a deep Story mode.

Unfortunately, that's about all the information we have right now, but we'll let you know if we hear anything tasty.

While the roster of fighters is yet to be revealed, it's probably safe to assume that Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, and other franchise favourites will make an appearance.
