Mortal Kombat Vita Gameplay Trailer

fataliteee When Netherrealm studios announced Mortal Kombat for the Vita, we were shortly presented not only with gameplay identical to it's home console counterpart but a slew of extra mini games and features too. We thought those were plenty but it seems there's more.

Aside from the fluid 60fps Mortal Kombat fighting gameplay that we now know and love, mini games such as igniting falling bombs to juggle the fighters and keep them airborne, fending off incoming missiles by tapping or wiping of blood that gets splattered on the screen using the PS Vita's touchscreeen have been included in the portable version of the latest Mortal Kombat. A few more mini games were showed and one of them is cutting off limbs from a fighter one by one ala a Fatality. Another showed you using Kenshi's psychic powers to ward off projectiles or using the gyroscope to balance a character to prevent them from falling into a pitt. What caught me off guard was the Fruit Ninja like mini game that was shown at about 0:42. It looks just like Fruit Ninja but instead of slicing up fruit, you slice up what appear to be body parts, there are even bombs in the Fruit Ninja mode.

The Vita version of Mortal Kombat looks to be the complete package of the console version and so much more. The only missing feature is online play which is a little sad but local adhoc play is available and is said to run at a perfect 60fps so you're opponent can't blame "the lag" when you rip their spine out.
