The lights are on
Konami has revealed the release date for their latest platforming remake, and fans don't have long to wait before they'll be able to once again rocket about with video gaming's greatest opossum hero. Rocket Knight will release on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam on May 12th, with a release on PSN the following week on May 18th. Rocket Knight is based on a Konami platforming series from the 90s, starring a hero named Sparkster who dons a jet pack to take on invading hordes of vicious animals. Despite the cartoony visuals, the new Rocket Knight game is packed with classic platforming appeal, with some exciting level designs and several cool gimmicks, not the least of which is the ability to bounce around the screen at high speed using the titular rocket.

I like the art stile of this game but I doubt I will get it.
I was a huge fan of this game when I was a kid. I loved this stuff then, and I'm probably going to have to give it a go!
the one screen shot doesn't look very cool... must investigate further
May 18th. Zip it up and zip it out!
Interested to try a demo out for this one. Looks pretty fun.
May think about getting this on either the 360 or the PS3.
I remember playing this when I was little, but it wasn't all that memorable.
ah i never knew of the orginal so i might peek at this but not sure if id actually get it.
I'll check out the demo. Looks like it's worth a try.
Now all we need is for Sonic 4 to get a release date. And I'll be in "classic game reboot" heaven!
@ Matthew Burt
epic fail on spelling "stile".
Just recently discovered the original. I think I speak for all of us when I say
May 18th cannot come soon enough. Rocket Knight Adventures is easily one of my favorite games of all time, can't wait for the new Rocket Knight!
I love the Platforming/Side-Scrolling genre, so I will check this out. I don't know too many details about the game though, so I will probably wait to see some reviews.
Hot ***! Cannot WAIT to get back into the world of Rocket Knight. Sega Genesis, it's been too long since you and I spent time together...
dang i just watched a trailer for this and I definitely am going to get the demo
I will definately be getting this!!!
