Malicious Rebirth Coming to PS Vita

Dais Kawaguchi's Avatar Posted by Producer, SIEA

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.

Malicious Rebirth

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!

Anyways, thanx again to everyone who made this possible. You guys didn’t HAVE TO bring this to the Vita but you did anyways!! The reason I say that is because the Vita isn’t the most popular/profitable platform right now to release games on. That display of following up on a long-term promise IMO makes this US release that much more of a big deal… ESPECIALLY with all of the special treatment this version is receiving in the form of extra content as well as having to go through the long process of translating the text/dialog. Keep the good work and know that I’ll be a day #1 buyer, 100% all the way!!

Hopefully it’s better than the PS3 version… I liked the concept but the controls were terrible and poorly conveyed and the story was literally a book. We all know how much fun it is to read text on a television screen for extended periods of time. Definitely one of the weaker Plus games.

I’d be really happy to see this free for PS+ a few months after its release just like its PS3 counterpart and I’d be OVERJOYED if it will be free right on the release :D

When (If) they make a second Malicious, I have some cool ideas for it. In the Level hub make it have different ways of getting to levels (mind you this will, at start restrict places) like use the Lance to get so high and far to reach one platform, then use the speed from the wings to get past a dangerous path, and so on like than, after each trial is a new couple of levels… Just an idea.

Emma. I see what you mean… Janet`s st0rry is impressive, last tuesday I got a great Buick after earning $4373 this past 5 weeks and-just over, 10k last-month. this is definitely my favourite-work I’ve ever done. I started this nine months/ago and practically straight away started bringing in minimum $87, per/hr. I use the details on this web-site, Bow6.com

Love that people here didn’t even know about this version despite it coming out in Japan ages ago and being announced before we even got the PS3 version.

Just goes to show that anyone who come onto the PS Blog and whines about “no games” on PS Vita is ignorant.

Awesome Awesome Awesome News…this is one game I’ve had my eye on coming to the west! Now (with this and Muramasa, Killzone Merc and Soul Sacrifice – Still playing Persona 4) my PSVita gaming need for the year 2013 is sorted. Thanks alot Sony – you guys are the best! Please as a sidenote, I am a rabid Playstation/Sony fanboy, and I desperately cant wait for the PS4, that said, I am also fearful I wont be getting the PS4 if Sony decide to go the *that company which must not be named* route. Please Sony we gamers love you and hope and pray you side with us gamers…you wont regret doing so. Thanks :)

Previous game had a lot of frame rate issues, if it’s fixed on the Vita I’ll definitely give it another go.

@Dais a bit off topic but can you report kileysmith92 in to sony for this. it’s a scam and this person ran it on 2 other posts I seen so far. (Music unlimited and Dying light)
