A brand new, purpose-built version of Mortal Kombat will be released on Sony’s PlayStation Vita in the spring, Warner Bros has announced.
The emphasis in this version – which will return to the series’ 2D roots – has been put on brutality, with fatalities and x-ray moves getting a special mention.
New gameplay modes include Tag Team and Challenge Tower.
“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,” NetherRealm‘s creative director Ed Boon stated.
“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.”
