Sony confident Vita Borderlands 2 is “looking good”

Borderlands 2 new

Gearbox is developing the Vita version of Borderlands 2 with Iron Galaxy, and the latest on the project is that it is “looking good”.

Sony has published an update in a new blog post, affirming that Vita owners will be in for a treat come May.

Gio Corsi, Director of Third Party Productions at SCEA had the following to say:

“We’ve been working hard to jam pack the endless looting and mayhem of Borderlands 2 into the palm of your hands, and we’re committed to porting over the heart and soul of the console original without compromising the gameplay you know and love. Soon, Vita owners can chase down Handsome Jack on the go, alone, or with three of their Vita-toting friends via online co-op play. Huzzah!

“Now if you are like me, some of you would have already poured hours into Borderlands 2 on PS3. Because Cross Save is supported, you can easily continue your existing adventure on PS Vita. Just got done with a long Vita session out on the road? Pick up right where you left off on PS3 when you get home. Easily transfer your saved game from PS Vita to PS3 and vice-versa so you don’t miss one second of the shooting and looting mayhem. Pretty cool!

“When you pick up Borderlands 2 on Vita, you’ll also get six add-on packs. Extend your experience with Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, the Psycho and Mechromancer Character Classes, as well as the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1, and Collector’s Edition pack. As if the core game wasn’t already packing hundreds of hours of entertainment, this bonus content seals the deal, helping Borderlands 2 on Vita rank exceptionally high on the handheld-bang-for-your-buck-o-meter.

“As production wraps up, we’ll post more info about the game. We can’t wait for you to get your hands on this epic and action-packed Vita version of Borderlands 2. The look, the feel, the style, the characters, the weapons, and the co-op gameplay with its countless hours of shooting and looting – it’s all here! Prep your gear, Vault Hunters, we’ll see you back on Pandora!”

The latest trailer does give us confidence and gets us a little excited…
