Sony held an event yesterday to announce the PS Vita launch date for PAL territories of February 22, 2012 and the titles available for launch. Along with the launch titles, Sony also mentioned a long list of titles that are in development, which included none other than WB Games with a game titled simply "Mortal Kombat".

However, in a presentation slide to illustrate the numerous number of games in development, the previously rumored "Vitality" title was one again front and center, this time in a more stylized and final logo.



While the game has not been officially announced by WB Games, we can all but guarantee that the game will be titled Mortal Kombat Vitality. Granted, what kind of game Vitality will be is still unknown, but it is good to see that Warner Bros. is pushing the franchise to the front lines of their console launch efforts.

man i really hope this isn't the news boon was talking about :/

guyver, there's more than one surprise coming

Quite difficult to see with the glare, by it seems the logo is made of ice. Sub-Zero Mythologies 2 anyone? Not exactly a surprise, seeing as it was leaked/shown a while back. Hopefully there's something else new that will knock my socks off. Time to start saving for the PSVita. I'm starting to wonder whether there is any advantage to a game as a launch title. More sales due to the small selection of titles? Maybe that will depend on whether MKV will just be a portable MK9. All we know is that it's directly competing against SFxT, so NRS really needs to make it an entirely new game.

You know it

Nvm, dumb question of mine But anyway, I'm kinda hoping it's a completely different MK game and not just a handheld port of MK9

ok um.... ice blue logo the word "vitality" (remember urns of vitality from mkmsz?) it also uses the same font from mkmsz. maybe its a subzero game for vita. doubt it, but would be cool. no pun intended lol.

I am really pissed of at this news, every PC gamer has been begging for a PC version and finally he releases a PSP version. No psp fans even asked for it.

I asked for it! I wanted to be able to play MK9 while I was away from home. We don't know if it's a handheld version of MK9 or a brand new game.

http://www.ps3site.pl/mortal-kombat-na-ps-vita-to-port-wersji-z-ps3/92350 As far as I understood Google's translation, they claim MK:Vitality to be a port of PS3's game.

The Vita's port is called ''Mortal Kombat: Hard Core Edition '' according to wikipedia

Well thats all I needed to know

Vita + Fatality = Vitality?

I just hope two things: a) That's there enough new content to guarantee a purchase for us that already have MK9 b) It's not being ported by Other Ocean

Other Ocean actually did a very fine job porting UMK 3 to DS, so they are not all that bad.

Sony director of hardware marketing John Koller confirms that there'll be a Mortal Kombat game on the PS Vita Koller also addressed Sony's game plan for software releases on the PS Vita. Alluding to the 3DS's dearth of new games following its launch, Koller said that Sony plans to mete out big-name titles for the PS Vita on a consistent basis in the months ahead. "What we really wanted to do, and I think we learned from past, most recent, handheld device launches, is that you don't want to launch strongly and then go dark for three or four months and have nothing…So in subsequent months for Vita, we have launch, then we have MLB, then we got Mortal Kombat, then Resistance, then Little Big Planet, then Call of Duty, and Assassin's Creed." http://www.gamespot.com/events/ces2012/story.html?sid=6348564

Still can't wait to see if there'll be any exclusive content on the Vita version if it's a port of MK9

More info, Tim Static posted this in the Spoilers & leaks section http://testyourmight.com/threads/mortal-kombat-coming-to-playstation-vita-in-spring-2012-confirmed.13273/ The article pretty much confirms that it will be a port of MK9, but with new features
January 17th, 2012 10:30 AM CST - MKShao_Kahn
New features huh..I hope for new characters and arenas but I don't think we'll be getting those... Instead we should get the new brutality system they had created but due to lack of time it was cut.
