Borderlands 2 is one of those games that blends zany wit with frenetic FPS action and stays true to its roots to deliver a wholly bombastic and entertaining experience from start to finish.
Now that same explosive in-your-face action is making its way to handhelds–specifically Sony’s PS Vita.
Announced during Sony’s Gamescom presentation, Gearbox’s definitive sequel will be ported to the PS Vita for a release sometime in 2014. Gearbox is collaborating with Iron Galaxy Studios to bring Borderlands 2 to Sony’s handheld, and it’s been confirmed that Sony will stand as publisher of the upcoming iteration.
Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford has recently expressed his interest in seeing the game on the Vita, and it will definitely be interesting to see how the memorable shooter pans out on the handheld system.
Additionally to make the Vita more accessible to the market, Sony has issued a much-desired price cut on the handheld, and is now marked down to $199.
No specifics on concrete release date info or DLC add-ons have been released at this time–only the general announcement, however it’s a great bit of news for gamers who want their Borderlands fix on-the-go.
