Mortal Kombat Vita bleeds out on May 1

You've had almost a year to practice your Fatalities and climb the Challenge Tower in Mortal Kombat, so the time is ripe to do it all again in miniaturized fashion. WB Games announced today that the PlayStation Vita version of the game is coming on May 1.

The game is mostly identical to the console versions, including all four DLC characters and 15 additional costumes from the get-go. It also adds a second Challenge Tower, with another 150 challenges. Many of these take advantage of the Vita's unique features like the touch screen. Plus, if you want to execute your opponent by slashing with your finger, you're in luck.

Andrew walked away impressed from his hands-on preview, and even thought some of the touch features had their own goofy charm.
