The PlayStation Vita may be struggling to secure big software releases, but it’s certainly not lacking free-to-play games. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Guardian Hearts Online announcement, GameArts has revealed yet another free title for the shiny new handheld.

Picotto Knight is a four-player online side-scrolling game in which you control “Crocoids” armed with a variety of hand weapons. You’ll need to buddy up to slaughter the minions of the Demon King and save the planet Pico. Nonsense plot, then, but it looks cute.

As you progress, you'll be able to level up your character and unlock a variety of cosmetic upgrades. There’s no date attached to the title just yet, which is currently only confirmed for Japan.
