Augmented Reality Edit
In Mortal Kombat for the PS Vita, there is an interesting new Augmented Reality mode that you can play in, that switches the backgrounds of your fights to use the vita'a back camera and project sprites on there. No augmented reality cards are needed.
To enter Augmented Reality mode, open up Practice Mode and hit Triangle to enter Arena Select. With any arena selected, press and both L and R buttons at the same time. You’ll hear Shao Kahn’s laugh if done correctly.
