We first heard about the PSN game Malicious back in 2010, when it was first announced for Japan. It's finally been announced for North America, and we don't have much more waiting to do – it's coming July 24, for $9.99.

Malicious centers on a series of boss fights in which you employ a sort of magical scarf that can change shape into various melee or even projectile weapons. Like Mega Man, you can choose the order in which you face these boss battles – and like Mega Man, you absorb powers from defeated bosses.

The version coming out here is for PS3. There's also a Vita version in Japan, but that has not been announced for North America.
