With the exceptional Tearaway already available, the roster of upcoming PlayStation Vita retail releases is looking a little dry. Fortunately, there could be a big game set to take charge of your device's cartridge slot sooner than you think, as North American retailer Newegg reckons that Borderlands 2 is set to fire its way onto the handheld on 18th March. That’s a Tuesday, so it’s certainly possible.

We haven’t really heard a whole lot about the re-release – which is in production at Iron Galaxy Studios – since its announcement at GamesCom earlier in the year, and the product listing sadly doesn’t provide any additional information. It will be interesting to see whether the, er, portable port actually comes with all of the console version’s expansion packs. It seems unlikely to us.

Nevertheless, this is the first title that's being produced as part of Sony’s new conversion and localisation division, so it will need to make a strong first impression. As evidenced in a recent feature, we reckon that this title has the potential to really shine on the pocketable platform – assuming that the abovementioned developer can nail the translation. Are you cautiously optimistic? Open the green chest in the comments section below.
