Rocket Knight returns to the roost

The roost being my heart, of course :)

So, when Rocket Knight was announced for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year, I was ecstatic. I have fond memories of the Sparkster games that appeared on the Genesis and SNES, after all, so the thought of returning to the Rocket Knight world was an appealing one.

When I saw the first screenshots and videos of the game, though, I was eviscerated. I didn't expect Konami's (or, rather, Climax Group's) latest Sparkster title to be a sprite-filled affair like its predecessors, but I didn't expect it to be a hot polygonal mess, either.

That no longer seems to be the case, thankfully, as I just watched a new video of the game (over at and came away ecstatic once again. Here it is, in case you haven't seen it:

More videos of Rocket Knight in action--and a rather lengthy preview of the highly anticipated title--can be found here.
