The next Mortal Kombat game was originally planned for sometime in 2013. But even though that train has clearly left the station, that doesn't mean the game isn't still in development. In fact, we can likely add a new voice to the game's cast: 24 frontman Kiefer Sutherland.

2011's Mortal Kombat: Legacy turned out about as well as one could hope from a live-action webseries based upon an absurd video game about magic soldiers and ninjas tearing people's spines out, and it's coming back. The whole second season will arrive all at once on September 26, continuing the martial arts tournament and revealing more of its fighters' back stories.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy returning for second season

Mortal Kombat: Legacy is returning for a second season. The popular web series began as a short film, but was rolled into a series to accompany the release of last year's Mortal Kombat series reboot.

"It's going to be about the actual Mortal Kombat tournament this time," said Kevin Tancharoen in the announcement trailer. "A lot of people were expressing their opinions on wanting to see more fighting, more action, more visual effects, so we really took that to heart."

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.

Mortal Kombat Vita preview

When I first saw Mortal Kombat's Vita-exclusive touch-screen mini-games, I scoffed. "The touch-screen features seem entirely tacked-on," I said.

Well, having gotten my hands on the Vita version of Mortal Kombat, I have to admit I was wrong. While the gameplay of these experiences is nowhere as deep as the core game, they have enough campy Mortal Kombat personality that it's hard not to laugh while playing.

Mortal Kombat Vita's uncomfortable new challenges detailed

The upcoming PS Vita version of Mortal Kombat will be the most complete version of the game yet, with all the DLC included and additional exclusive content being thrown in for good measure. For example, the Vita version includes 15 additional costumes, including "MK3-styled garb for the ninjas." There's also a brand new Challenge Tower II, which adds 150 new challenges to the game.

This sounds good and dandy, but some of the touch-screen features seem entirely tacked-on.

Mortal Kombat is coming to the PlayStation Vita, and if the box art is any indication, it will be based off the "Komplete Edition" of the game, which includes every DLC character out of the box.

Mortal Kombat 'Komplete Edition' rated

Kan Warner Bros kontinue mispelling more words for Moral Kombat re-releases? The answer seems to be "yes." Britain's BBFC recently rated the "Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition," an updated version of the latest Mortal Kombat game on PS3 and Xbox 360. While the rating doesn't offer any insight into what the package will offer, it seems pretty easy to figure out.

As with other "Game of the Year" and "Director's Cut" re-releases, we're going to guess that this is a retail re-release of Mortal Kombat, with all the DLC included.
