"For the last year, Gearbox Software, 2K, and Sony have been inundated with emails, tweets, forum posts and more from passionate gamers across the world pleading for a PS Vita version of Borderlands 2," explained Gearbox Software's Adam Fletcher.
According to Fletcher, the PS Vita version of Borderlands 2 will be developed by Iron Galaxies, the studio which most recently released indie fighting game Divekick.
"You spoke, we listened, and with the wonderful collaboration between 2K, Sony and the team at Iron Galaxy Studios - makers of indie fighting game Divekick - we can finally make Borderlands 2 on PS Vita a reality!"
"The PS Vita gives Borderlands 2 fans the ability to play the game anywhere they want, complete with of all the unique benefits of the Vita, and will truly bring the four-player cooperative experience to the palms of your hands. A new era of portable shoot-and-loot awaits!"
"For those of you new to the critically acclaimed shooting-and-looting mayhem of Borderlands 2, which won more than 55 editorial awards in 2012, you'll be picking from four uniquely-skilled Vault Hunters - Axton the Commando, Maya the Siren, Salvador the Gunzerker and Zer0 the Assassin - and then gunzerking your way through the world of Pandora in an attempt to defeat the corrupt Hyperion Corporation, led by the notorious Handsome Jack."
Fez for PS Vita, meanwhile, is being developed by Barcelona-based Blit Software, which is also the studio behind the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Spelunky.
The platform holder also used the event to announce a Vita price cut. Starting tomorrow, Wednesday August 21, the portable will retail for €199 in Europe and $199 in North America. Sony also promised a "significant reduction" to the price of Vita memory cards.
