Mortal Kombat kicks it old school in new PS Vita trailer

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.
