Borderlands fans who've waited patiently to play the game from their handheld shan't wait much longer: Sony has announced the upcoming launch of Borderlands 2 for the PlayStation Vita, something that will be kicked off with the availability of a Borderlands 2 Limited Edition PS Vita Bundle next month.

The announcement was made today on the company's blog, where Sony says it has been working diligently with Gearbox Software, Iron Galaxy Studio, and 2K "for a while now" to port Borderlands 2 for its latest handheld gaming console. Such a task has finally reached completion.
