A new action game is coming to PSN later this month – Malicious.

On the PS Blog, SCEA Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced that action title Malicious, which was developed by Japanese studio Alvion, is coming to PSN on July 24th. The game will be priced at $9.99.

In Malicious, gamers will play as a “Spirit Vessel” who has been awakened by prophets to prevent evil giants (“Holders”) from destroying The Kingdom. The player’s character is armed with the Mantle of Cinders, an artifact that can take the form of weapons or a shield.

Players will have the ability to select stages and jump directly into boss battles, in whatever order the player pleases. Upon defeating bosses, players will absorb their power and gain new and unique abilities. Regardless of order of the bosses faced, the player’s goal will be to eventually defeat Malicious, the ultimate evil.
