Mortal Kombat kicks it old school in new PS Vita trailer


9:00 PM on 04.24.2012



There's just something about playing fighting games on the go that's extremely exciting to me. Especially nowadays when handhelds have almost caught up to their console brothers in terms of capability, and games like Super Street Fighter IV and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 already have near-perfect ports on the 3DS and PS Vita, respectively. NetherRealm Studios wants to replicate what Capcom has already done, but better.

As you can see in the latest trailer, NetherRealm is bringing over the same package of Mortal Kombat that you'll find in the Komplete Edition, which includes all the classic costumes and four DLC characters. But to make the Vita version the best version, they're adding 150 new missions to the Challenge Tower and some slick touch screen support for fatalities and new mini games (like the Mortal Kombat version of Fruit Ninja!).

Lately I've really been feeling the drought of nothing happening on the Vita these days. I need something new to play! Mortal Kombat really could not have come at a better time. Just one more week, poor Vita. Hang in there.

Mortal Kombat 9 is almost definitely coming to Steam

Storm's Adventure with Mortal Kombat

Witness another poor decision on my part. Street Fighter IV taught me not to play modern fighting games, or, at the very least, speak my opinion of them in public. Of course, that was before I was able to post to t...more

Knights of the Old Republic and other Star Wars media no longer considered canon

That's a nice extended universe you've got there, Star Wars. It'd be a shame if it were invalidated. Actually, that's exactly what's happening. Lucasfilm announced just that today via the official Star Wars blog, where it wa...more
