This summer, Japan gets a re-release of Malicious with extra content, titled Malicious Rebirth, for the PlayStation Vita in Japan. Meanwhile, North America is getting the original Malicious for PlayStation 3 in English.

 

Malicious will be released via the PlayStation Network on July 24th. The game will cost $10.

 

Developed by Alvion, Malicious is an action game where you can play stages in the order you choose, sort of like Mega Man. You absorb new powers from bosses, so the order in which you tackle the game’s stages will decide which abilities you acquire first. You can watch a Japanese trailer for the game above.
