First Look at Mortal Kombat Played on PS Vita

Developers sure are attacking the PS Vita with a fierce array of fighting games, none more exciting–in my opinion–than NetherRealm’s portable adaptation of last year’s bloody, brilliant Mortal Kombat reboot.

Initial reports mentioned additional features, such as touch screen and sixaxis control elements and a brand new Challenge Tower. Now more details are in, as is first footage of the game running a fluid 60 frames-per-second on the gorgeous Vita display.

You won’t see any touch screen fatality action, but towards the end you will see an example of how the touch screen is used in the new Challenge Tower missions — the screen splatters with blood, and players have to squeegee it off with their finger while fighting at the same time.

Check out the video, then scurry over to the PlayStation blog for their complete hands-on report.
