Malicious Rebirth Will Be Released In English

By Spencer . March 8, 2013 . 3:38pm

imageAlvion made an enhanced port of their PlayStation 3 game Malicious for PlayStation Vita. Malicious Rebirth has an added Resurrection chapter with new enemies to fight.


While Malicious Rebirth has not been announced for the West, Alvion tweeted, "The other day we trusted an English localization to a English publisher, so it depends on them. We will rush them again." Sony Computer Entertainment America/Europe handled Malicious’ distribution in other regions. It’s unclear which company is handling Malicious Rebirth, but we’ll get to play it in English some day (hopefully soon!).

        Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann.

  • This game looks pretty cool and imo it’s one of the most appealing games for PSvita so far.

  • Chrystofax

    Ah that is good news, I’ll be sure it buy it whenever it gets here, would’ve bought the vita version off the jp psn store, if it were not for certain limits

  • AkuLord3

    This is a Wonderful Surprise, i wasn’t expecting it to come over but it did. Yeah we got the Ps3 one and thankfully this…Awesome

  • tubers

    How much though?

    • dotzeno

      It’s 122HKD on the Hong Kong PSN. That’s roughly 16USD.

  • Prinny Dood

    Day one purchase :D

    • Göran Isacson

      Where’s this image from? It doesn’t look like it’s from Malicious, so now i’m curious.

      • EtherealEarth

        That’s Atelier Meruru.

      • Prinny Dood

        Its atelier meruru ps vita , I just put it there cause its a nice pic and it a good wallpepr for the vita.

  • Sylveria

    If it’s under $10, maybe. If it was a full release I’d be all over it. But, I don’t buy digital unless it’s something cheap.

  • Palmer Nyako

    this would be fun with friends.

  • Go2hell66

    this game would be perfect right about now, vita really needs games bad i have almost nothing to look forward to until Dragon’s crown, Ys IV and muramasa come out and those will probably be closer to the end of the year T_T

  • This game is in top seller position for a while on JP Vita PSN, will definitely look forward to this.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    The only thing I’m wondering is how to do that ground pound like move, since in the PS3 version you needed to be in the air and press L3 or R3 (obviously the Vita doesn’t have that).
    It was vital to S ranking the final boss for me.

    • Brandonmkii

      I know for ps1 classics, the vita’s default L3/R3 is mapped to the touch screen, so there’s always that.

  • HassanJamal

    Yes, i’ve known this for a long time. I just want to know the release date :’C

  • almostautumn

    I’ll wait for reviews. I bought the original Malicious back when it was a JPN exclusive, and man was I let down. It’s gorgeous for a PSN title, and there’s so much aspiration with the title, but the gameplay itself— just isn’t that fun. The more complex each boss gets the more disjointed the gamer is. I don’t know much about this re-vamp, but no less I’ll stick in hesitancy.

  • Looks like I’m buying the Japanese version

    • TheExile285


  • Göran Isacson

    I do hope it gets over here, whether in hardformat or digital. I’ve wanted to play this game since I first laid eyes on it, simply due to that scarf- I am a sucker for morphing weapons.

  • Vash bane

    had no idea this was going to come out over here cool…(runs to nearest retailer)

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Those beautiful visuals while I’m on the W.C.? This is the best thing ever.

  • Malicious birth already release? English copy are available now?
