Gorgeous Action Game Malicious Hits PSN Tomorrow, Launch Trailer Looks Fantastic

on February 7, 2012 7:00 PM

Have you ever been in the dark about what looked like an awesome game all the way up until the day before the game actually releases? If you answered no, that’s probably because most publishers do a pretty good job of promoting and advertising their games pre-launch, but this doesn’t seem to be the case with Malicious from equally low profile Japanese developer Alvion. It’s a shame too, because as you can see from the enclosed trailer, the game really does look very fun.

It sports a colorful and dramatic art style and looks to pack some stylish, exciting action. The trailer shows our hero, who is reportedly a “Spirit Vessel” being utilized by prophets to vanquish evil, razing tons of Malicious with his almighty shape-shifting Mantle of Cinders. That’s a cape that handles your light work. Malicious promises to offer a streamlined and challenging campaign full of boss enemies and unlockable abilities, which sounds lively. The game will be $10 with a 20% discount for PSN Plus members.
