Malicious was originally released as a PlayStation Network download on PS3 in Japan back in ye olden day of "2010." A mystical, long-forgotten year. Well, the action game from developer Alvion is finally making its way to North America as a download, with a release date set for July 24.
In Malicious, players take control of a "Spirit Vessel" awakened by prophets to defeat evil giants known as Holders. Combat comes in the form of your Mantle of Cinders, a cape that can be wielded as various weapons or a shield. Sounds cool. Looks cool. Count me in.
Here, we also unearthed some ancient gameplay footage from the site known as "YouTube."
Malicious will be $9.99 when it drops in a couple weeks.
