I’m getting awfully worked up for this Tuesday, when
Mortal Kombat finally emerges on PS Vita and I can begin to decapitate, dismember, and devour Jeff and Rey from the comfort of my desk. Early previews have pointed to a game that’s remarkably faithful to the original PS3 version with all the characters, modes, and speed of its bigger brother. Can’t wait!
In other news this week, BioWare announced that N7 Weekly Challenges for Mass Effect 3 are
now live for PSN users, the creator of PS Move interactive mystery Datura revealed a May 8th PSN release, Lightbox Interactive revealed the secrets of its soundtrack (complete with a sample track!) and storyline, Sony Santa Monica revealed Sorcery’s final box art, and PopCap Games outlined Bejeweled 3’s PSN incarnation.
What are you playing this weekend? Anyone planning to pick up the PS Vita version of Mortal Kombat this week?
