Mortal Kombat for PS Vita will be released in the UK on May 4, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced.

The game comes across from home console to PS Vita pretty much intact, complete with 60 frames per second visuals, an all-new Challenge Tower mode offering 150 new missions, touchscreen Fatalities and more.

On the new Challenge Tower missions, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon said: "Challenge Tower is a perfect fit for mobile sessions, so we expanded it greatly for PS Vita. There are actually two Challenge Towers in the PS Vita version, and the new one has 150 challenges that are exclusive to PS Vita. A number of those challenges use PS Vita's hardware features: the touch screen, the accelerometer."
