Konami's update to 16-bit platformer Rocket Knight is showing more visual promise, the high-flying adventures of the armour-wearing Sparkster reigniting our interest in modernised old-school gaming.
For anyone unfamiliar with the adventures of Rocket Knight or the complex stories that often accompany anthropomorphised furry mascots, heroic opossum Sparkster must rid his home of the Kingdom of Zephyrus of invading wolves. I guess that's pretty much it.
Rocket Knight will be available on May 12th on Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points and for PC, via Steam, for $US14.99. On May 18th, Rocket Knight makes its debut on the PlayStation Network for $US14.99.
