Huge announcement yesterday from WB Games, NetherRealms excellent DC universe brawler is getting an Ultimate Edition. Not only that its coming to PC, PS4 and PS Vita. I could not be more excited for a Vita version of this fantastic game.

The Vita version is being handled by Armature Studios, developer of Metal Gear Solid HD on the Vita and the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. After being really blown away with Blackgate at Eurogamer Expo last month, I couldn't be happier with the choice of developer to handle this port. Armature Studio's Technical Director, Jack Matthews has also posted some more detailed information about the Vita version on the PlayStation Blog (full article here).
"When developing Injustice on Vita, our primary goal was to make sure it could hold its own next to its console counterpart.
The PS3 version has beautiful lighting, destructible environments, and – most importantly – 60 FPS fighting. We worked tirelessly to bring this experience to the handheld, and pulled out all the stops to push the PS Vita as hard as we could to make all of the above happen.
In addition to all of this, we’ve included ad-hoc multiplayer, traditional multiplayer over wi-fi, and touch controls to Story Mode and various S.T.A.R. Labs Missions."
If you haven't owned Injustice yet, this is the version to get whether it be on Xbox, PS3 or your new shiny PS4 or your Vita. Just get it on the 29th November, you won't regret it.
