By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

Narrowing down its current ‘spring 2012′ release date, Warner Bros. has confirmed that the PlayStation Vita version of Mortal Kombat will be arriving on May 4.

The handheld release will provide an “on-the-go fighting game experience with brand new gameplay features and tons of new content developed exclusively for the revolutionary handheld system.” Fans can expect an all-new Challenge Tower mode with 150 brand new missions, including Touchscreen Fatalities, X-rays and more.

“The NetherRealm team is committed to making sure that we follow-up the success of 2011’s Mortal Kombat with an equally compelling experience on the PlayStation Vita,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios back in January. “The original game content and new features we developed for the PlayStation Vita will provide gamers with the best fighting game experience available on the new mobile platform.”
