Gorgeous visuals, fast gameplay, and a whole lot of awesome. Malicious is one of those must have PSN titles from Japan that deserves to be released worldwide.
So I guess no choice but to get a JP PSN card....
You could still hope, though. I'm quite sure a publisher would like to pick this up, it would sell pretty well over here, I think.
Yeah, well I've been waiting for Dark Mist, another JP-only PSN title, for at least two years. Probably pick that one up too.
Dark Mist actually came out in Europe, oddly enough. The expansion pack didn't though. It's a good game as well, but much better with the additional content.
going to dl it later ... love little beat em ups like this :)
For a PSN title it has really good graphics, and it looks tight. Bring it to USA!
Picked this up last week. Totally worth the price tag. There's so much replay value with the score attack mode and the music is amazing.
They don't cater to Western audience with this mentality, somebody simply shows gameplay online, if attractive, tries to get attention to a publisher to translate it for outside audiences. Word of mouth would follow suit. -End of Line
Incidentally, said titles that give two shits about a worldwide audience don't leave Japan, sadly. ...Or they are deemed "Too Japanese".
Bingo, this game is just screaming for an Atlus localization. It definately has the potential to be another Demon's Souls-like success. Bubs up for you both.
Lets hope atlus or namco picks this digital distribution and gets this to the European an US,PSN!
What are the complaints people have about games being too short or needing more replay value? This review puts it nicely: "In terms of replay value, there is a Time Attack mode and trophies with some ridiculously difficult requirements to meet. Other than that, the game is just fun to playthrough again and again, learning new techniques along the way. You might even get a better score." If you like a game enough, you will play through it again and again. I really hope this gets released in the US and Europe. I would buy it straight up.
Holy shit... this is a PSN game? INCREDIBLE! O_O Must... buy....
This game is incredible. And it kicks Sega in the teeth for releasing Bayonetta on PS3 with it's frame rate issues. This is a downloadable game that reminds me of a better, non-technically flawed version of Shinji's Bayonetta. This should be picked up by Sony America, Europe, and all other Sony divisions worldwide, for worldwide release. All this crap about western developers being better than Japanese ones, yet all the originality, design flair, gameplay mechanics and overall production design is still pioneered by the developers in the land of the rising sun. But how would some of our ignorant western press know, if half of Japanese developed games are never released here, due to pig headed suits making up our minds for us that we need another "me too" FPS over splendors like this.
Kamiya did Bayonetta, other than that, you're spot on.
Seems quite cool alright
WOW.....I'm too awed to say anything else o_o
The fighting system seems rather shallow. Another game with slaughtering hordes of stupid enemies.
I want this game..
This looks pretty awesome. I have no idea why, but the different forms remind me a little of Prototype.
