Borderlands 2 PS Vita release confirmed for May 2014

The PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2 is officially set for release on May 13, though you’ll be able to snag it a week early (on May 6) if you pick up the Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PlayStation Vita Bundle for $199.99. The bundle includes the newly redesigned PS Vita and an 8GB memory card in addition to the game. 

However you choose to get Borderlands 2 for Vita, there’s an assortment of extras to complement the main game in Iron Galaxy Studios’ port. The Vita release includes a total of six content packs that were previously released for the console game. You get the Psycho and Mechromancer character classes, the Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Upgrade Pack, the Collector’s Edition pack, and two story DLC add-ons: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty and Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage. There’s no word on if or when the other DLC packs will be making their way to the Vita release, but you’ll be able to carry your progress over from your PlayStation 3 saves.

Those that opt for the bundle will also get the redesigned PS Vita. In addition to being smaller and lighter than the original model, the Vita refresh also sports an LCD screen (replacing the former’s OLED), improved battery life, and 1GB of internal memory. You can find more details in Sony’s latest PlayStation Blog post.
