Mortal Kombat Vita, which was announced a little while back, will run at a solid 60 FPS, looking almost as astounding as the console versions of the game did. This is unprecedented for a handheld system, and we’re excited to see how it’ll look in the final product.
When asked about the same in a Q&A session with EU PS Blog, Ed Boon, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios, said “We wouldn’t accept any compromises there; we needed the game to run at the same framerate as the PS3 version. A number of our internal people proposed running it at 30 frames per second — “we could do this and this and that” — but we knew it would feel different. We didn’t want it to feel sluggish or unresponsive.”
Mortal Kombat for PS Vita will release in Spring 2012. Stay tuned for more updates.
