    The downloadable action game "Malicious" by Alvion recently saw a PSVita release in Japan called "Malicious: Rebirth". The enhanced port contains a whole new chapter as well as new enemies. There was no word on a western localization, however an interesting tweet appeared on Alvion's tweeter. Apparently they've trusted the localization to a publisher already, so we may be able to play this title on our PSVita's sometime soon. No official announcements or release dates as of yet, so keep those fingers crossed!​

    Ah, that's good. Denying Vita owners another game would've been downright... mean-spirited.

    I agree, it'd be quite a malicious move.

    pun-combo-breaker!

    This game looks really pretty! Also it does look similar to Kid Icarus: Uprising gameplay wise... However, I haven't played that, just judging from other movies :)

    Of course it will go well. The Vita gets exclusives all the time.

    It's super niche so sales will be small regardless of platform. And it's already been released for the PS3.
