Borderlands 2 is coming to PS Vita in the spring, Sony head of hardware marketing John Koller announced at a PlayStation event in Santa Monica today. Vita's Borderlands 2 includes six bits of DLC, and it will allow four-player co-op and cross-play with access to save games from the PS3 version. The included DLC packs are Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, the Psycho, the Mechromancer, Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1 and Collector's Edition Pack.
The new, slimmer Vita will launch in North America this spring, bundled with Borderlands 2 and an 8GB memory card for $200. The remodeled Vita hit the UK on February 7 for £180 (just under $300), following its launch in Japan last year. This new Vita is 20 percent thinner, 15 percent lighter, has an LCD screen rather than OLED, 1GB memory and a micro USB slot.
A God of War collection and a Sly Cooper collection are also on their way to Vita, courtesy of Sanzaru Games. The God of War bundle contains God of War 1 and 2, and is due out on May 6. The Sly Collection includes Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racconus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, and launches on May 27.
Borderlands 2 is 2K's highest-selling game ever, with more than 8.5 million units shipped.
