THE BUZZ: Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has revealed the first details on Mortal Kombat for PlayStation Vita, which was announced last week.
Boon told the PlayStation Blog, “It’s actually everything from the PS3 game: the entire Story Mode and all the downloadable characters and content, plus additional modes and features that are tailored for PS Vita.”
The game will include an extra 150 challenge tower missions and one-on-one online matches.
“Those extra 150 Challenge Tower missions are tons of fun,” he added. “Imagine tilting your PS Vita and affecting gravity in the game, things like that…”
EGM’s TAKE: It appears that the Vita version will be similar to Street Fighter X Capcom, in that it will make the fighting series more accessible to casual players. For example, by only having to touch the X-Ray meter in order to execute an attack or slashing the screen to perform fatalities. These moves usually require precise button inputs to pull off, creating a barrier to entry for some players. Hopefully the Vita version will alleviate these issues and introduce a whole new set of players to the series.
