Alvion’s gorgeous action game Malicious, previously exclusive to the Japanese PSN, arrives in Europe this week.

Malicious pits players against dauntingly monstrous enemies in a series of brawls, and features a neat cloak weapon which can be used in a variety of ways – as a shield, a club, or even to fire bullets.

Players choose which order to tackle the battles in, and each one grants them a unique power, meaning how you line them up affects what weapons you have at your disposal in the next one. Controls are simple but don’t let that fool you; your elegant fighter is likely to have gaping holes in his costume (and body) after a few encounters.

A Vita port has been announced, but not dated, for Japan. Check out a trailer below, courtesy of the EU PS Blog.
