'Mortal Kombat' is Coming to the Vita at 60fps

Creative Director Ed Boon says everything from the PS3 game will be present in the Vita version, plus a little extra.

After a pretty significant span of disappointing titles, 'Mortal Kombat' has come back in a big way. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have been met with high praise and have even been included in top-tier gaming tournaments. The folks at Netherrealm studios have just announced that you'll soon be able to take that same 'Mortal Kombat' experience with you thanks to the PlayStation Vita.

Creative Director Ed Boon says that very little has had to change with the transition to the Vita. "We did have to reduce some of the polygon counts from the backgrounds and characters," he says, but adds that the bright screen and high pixel density do much to make up for it. The game will be running at 60 frames per second too. "We wouldn’t accept any compromises there."

There are a few touchscreen features for the new title, but it's all optional. You can execute finishers or use your X-ray attack through the touchscreen, but if you prefer the traditional inputs you're more than welcome to use them.
