Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced today that Malicious Rebirth is coming to PlayStation Vita with details below.

To quote: Today we have great news for everyone - the long-awaited "Malicious Rebirth," a fast-paced action game for the PS Vita, is coming to PSN later this year.

You will be summoned by the prophets once again to take control of the "Spirit Vessel" in full 3D. You'll be forced to rise to the challenge in order to bring peace back to the Kingdom; the character and stage you select is entirely up to you.

You can jump right into epic boss battles in any order, but remember that bosses in later stages become much more challenging.

You'll also use the Mantle of Cinders to dive, glide, defend and perform various types of attacks. In Malicious Rebirth, there are more levels, bosses and powers to acquire than in the original PS3 version, thus making the Mantle much more powerful!

The key to survival lies in your timing with Aura, which you can use to heal yourself or perform powerful attacks on well-defended bosses, so you'll want to go for chain attacks to acquire Aura quickly.

In the coming weeks, we will be announcing more information so check back frequently. In the meantime, check out our new images and leave your thoughts and questions in the comments!
