Netherealm’s Ed Boon has been talking Mortal Kombat Vita on the PS Blog, giving details on some of the games features.
According to Boon, the game will retain the PS3 versions 60FPS framerate, as well as making use of other Vita features, such as the front touchscreen and rear touchpanel.
Giving an example of the features, Boon said, “You can touch your X-ray meter to execute an X-ray attack. For fatalities, you can “slash” the screen with the appropriate inputs — say, away, away, up — to execute the fatality. It makes some of the more difficult fatalities easier and it’s fun to slash at your screen to fire off a fatality.”
Finally Boon revealed that there are now two challenge towers, with the second including 150 challenges which make use of the various features of the Vita, although he wouldn’t be drawn into details, only saying “those extra 150 Challenge Tower missions are tons of fun. Imagine tilting your PS Vita and affecting gravity in the game, things like that…”
