Another excuse to pick up NetherRealm's excellent Mortal Kombat reboot? Count us in.

Warner Bros has added a big name to that line-up this afternoon, confirming that Mortal Kombat is coming to the PlayStation Vita in Spring 2012.

While we already had an ikling about the title β€” before the handheld's announcement in fact β€” it's taken a while for the title to be officially announced. But now it's totally confirmed.

As expected, Mortal Kombat on PlayStation Vita will not be an entirely new game β€” moreover an updated version of last year's PS3 smash-hit. The game will come with a bunch of extra bells and whistles, with NetherRealm co-founder, Ed Boon, promising all of the "original game content" in addition to "new features". Warner Bros is keeping a lid on what those new features might pertain to for now, but we're guessing there'll be some touch-based mini-games.

Like Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition, the PlayStation Vita release will also bundle all of the main game's DLC characters (that's Freddy Krueger, Kenshi, Rain and Skarlet if you're wondering) as well as the Sony exclusive character, Kratos.

Last year's Mortal Kombat was a stunning return to form, so we're looking forward to being able to carry it around in our pocket.
