The wait is just about over. Fans of the Mortal Kombat series that also happen to own a PS Vita have a new date to look forward to. Fans who live in North America can pick up the Mortal Kombat Vita game on May 1st, 2012. Fans who live in Europe get their copy on May 4th (according to Game Informer).
The official announcement on Mortal Kombat’s Facebook page is short and sweet:
“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios today confirmed that Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation® Vita system will be released on May 1, 2012 in North America.
Mortal Kombat for PlayStation Vita system provides an on-the-go fighting game experience with brand new gameplay features and tons of new content developed exclusively for the revolutionary handheld system. Mortal Kombat delivers an all-new Challenge Tower mode with 150 brand new missions, including Touchscreen Fatalities, Xrays and more.”
I was going to put the obligatory “Finish him!!” joke in here, but I couldn’t think of anything. So just use your imagination.
