One year after the original release; Mortal Kombat is brand new all over again, boasting a list of unique features when it arrives on PlayStation Vita at the beginning of May!

With 53.1% of the vote at the time of this writing, bonus kostumes have far and away been the MKOmmunity's most anticipated favourite feature coming to the handheld device. In the latest trailer [via Gametrailers], we get a vivid look at some of the retro inspired designs billed as exclusive to the Vita!

Figuring most prominently into the trailer, various coloured palette swaps inspired by the Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 era of economy costuming. Rain, Smoke, Scorpion and Noob Saibot are among the uniform characters on display. They add to other klassic kostumes inspired by the twenty year history of Mortal Kombat, as well as confirmed alternate skins for Skarlet, Freddy Krueger and Kenshi, the latter who can be seen briefly during the action.

Vita versions of Mortal Kombat contain content found in the console Komplete Edition, along with a slew of device-specific bonus features. Touchscreen Fatalities, an Augmented Reality practise arena [full story], as well as Test Your Balance and Test Your Slice mini-games, are among the marquee unique features. 150 Challenge Tower feats make up the completely revamped, new mode, which includes the much requested first opportunity to take control of series boss, Shao Kahn!

A live-action campaign featuring Mileena and Kitana is underway, emphasising the portable features of Vita, which allows adhoc and WiFi peer-to-peer gaming.

Mortal Kombat arrives on PlayStation Vita in the US May 1; May 4 in Europe. For updates, follow the extended MKOmmunity @MK_Online and like us on Facebook.
