Rocket Knight Landing On The XBLA In Mid-May

Over on the Rocket Knight Facebook page, Konami recently announced that the 15 year wait on the sidelines for the franchise will be over as it makes its return on the Xbox Live Arcade on May 12th.

The Facebook page update stated, "Rocket Knight fans, we're announcing this wide soon, but you guys get the scoop! US release dates are as follows: Rocket Knight will be available for Xbox Live Arcade and Steam on May 12, 2010. It will be available for PSN on May 18, 2010."

It does state that May 12th is the US release date, but it's very rare that an Xbox Live Arcade title releases in specific regions at different times. We assume that relates more to the PSN... and maybe Steam. Call it an educated guess.

Look at that screenshot, now look at the story, back at screenshot, now back to the story. What do you see? You see good news about Rocket Knight. Now the good news is great news. I'm on a horse.

Should hold judgement until I play this but in my opinion this is nothing compared to the original in terms of style from the screenshots. Just looks like another half-assed "2.5D" rehash of a sprite based 2D classic.

Steam too eh? Well I think it'll feel more at home on a console anyway so I'll wait for the XBLA release :)

800MSP should be the price for this title IMO. Any more than that and I probably won't get it. I loved playing the original on the Mega-Drive no matter how hard it was.
