In a press release today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced Mortal Kombat for Sony’s upcoming handheld, the PlayStation Vita. Set for a Spring 2012 release, the game is being developed by NetherRealm Studios.
Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios, said “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. 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 was released last year and was well received, going on to win multiple awards for best fighting game of the year. NetherRealm Studios is hoping to capture a “on-the-go gaming” experience and the new title will have new “gameplay features including Tag Team, Challenge Tower and a deep story mode.”
