Mamorukun Curse! is a 'cute-em-up' for PS3

Scourge: Outbreak publisher UFO Interactive has has announced it's bringing the Japanese title Mamorukun Curse! stateside. It's set to release on PS3 via PlayStation Network on July 16 in North America for $19.99.

The announcement describes it as a (ahem) "cute-em-up" top-down shooter, which follows the hero Mamorukun and other Chosen Souls as they find themselves in the Netherworld. Before long they're ordered by Ms. Fululu to help bring balance back to the Netherworld with their Curse powers, which naturally express themselves as shooty bits.

The game features three play modes (Action, Arcade, and Story), seven selectable characters, online leaderboards, and all of the DLC from the original Japanese version of the game. It will also include two extra netherworld adventure courses, and two extra characters, for those who actually did play the original. It mentions screen-filling enemy fire, so you can expect this to be a cuddly bullet-hell shooter.
