2K Games has revealed via Twitter that Borderlands 2 for the PlayStation Vita will release on March 18th.
This critically acclaimed first-person role-playing shooter first released back in 2012 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. And now for the first time it will be available on a portable system!
Borderlands 2 for PS Vita was first revealed during last year’s edition of GamesCom. The PS Vita version of Borderlands 2 is being developed by Iron Galaxy Studios in collaboration with Gearbox. It’s still not known wether or not the PS Vita version of Borderlands 2 will have some kind of unique features such as touch screen controls or motion-assisted aiming. If it does, we’ll likely hear about the game’s unique features in the coming weeks.
For those interested in trying out Borderland 2 before it hits PS Vita, you can get the full PS3 version for free if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber.
