- Sony Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi
has announced today that Malicious will be awakening on PlayStation Network this July 24th for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Malicious, a new, original action game for PS3 from Japanese studio Alvion
, is coming to PSN July 24th. That's in less than two weeks!
In Malicious, you'll take control of a "Spirit Vessel" awakened by prophets to defeat Holders, evil giants bent on destroying The Kingdom. You're armed with the Mantle of Cinders, a magical artifact that takes the form of weapons or a shield.
Rather than crawling through lengthy dungeons to find and defeat enemies, this game gives you the power to select whichever stage you want and jump directly into epic boss battles in whatever order you please.
Upon defeating each boss, you'll absorb its power to obtain new and unique abilities, so the choice is yours as to how you'll progress. In the end, however, you have one goal – prepare to face the ultimate evil, Malicious!
Malicious will be available for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network starting July 24. We'll be announcing more information in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
