More On: Mortal Kombat
And we have proof, in the form of a picture of the cover.  Mortal Kombat for the Vita will be specifically designed to take advantage of the Vita's unique on-the-go features and will have brand new exclusive gameplay elements and content.  And don't worry about the classic Mortal Kombat experience being declawed so it's more appealing to mobile gamers:  all the blood, guts, gore, X-ray moves, and fatalities will be intact, so even when you're on the bus, old ladies can still be horrified by what you're playing.  The 2D combat will include the addition of Tag Team, Challenge Tower, and a solid story mode.  More exclusive features will be revealed in the coming months.  Mortal Kombat for the PS Vita is due for release sometime this year.  Go here, here, here, or follow the jump to learn more.
