Malicious Rebirth is a PS Vita action game in which the player inhabits a Spirit Vessel and controls the Mantle of Cinders in order to defeat the Malicious, the bringer of disaster to the world.
While Malicious Rebirth retains the short-burst gameplay and fantasy setting of the original PS3 game, it also boasts a new "Rebirth" chapter with new levels, new bosses and new moves. All the original game modes are also available, complete with the worldwide leaderboard.
We're also releasing an exclusive Western Costume for $1.99 that will only be available in select SCEA territories. This costume will boost repair ability of the Spirit Vessel and improve sorcerous bullet power and repair speed.
We hope that you enjoy Malicious Rebirth, reborn for gaming on the go, out today on PlayStation Store!
26w ago - 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...

74w ago - 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!
