Live life to the Jax

NetherRealm’s brilliant Mortal Kombat kicks, punches and murders its way onto PlayStation Vita in North America today – and to celebrate, publisher Warner Bros has released the handheld brawler's launch trailer.

The footage features a 70-second montage of gameplay from the full game, and we have to admit, it’s looking like a fantastic port.

In addition to the all of the content from the PS3 release (and its DLC), Mortal Kombat Vita also includes a brand new Challenge Tower packed with trials designed to take advantage of the Vita's hardware. You can find out a little more about what to expect from those challenges over on the PlayStation Blog.
