    Konami is bringing Rocket Knight back! On a 2.5D platform in the same veins as Bionic Commando Rearmed and New Super Mario bros.

    Game is stated for early 2010 on PSN, Xbox Live and Steam. And is being developed by Climax (Sillent Hill Origins, Silent Hill Shattered Memories).

    Been a while since this first announced, nice to hear something of this at last. Will grab it on Steam though, something tells me this will look a lot better in motion.

    The graphics look similar to a Crash Bandicoot game but a little more kiddy in nature and probably no violent and almost PG-13 rated deaths of Crash Bandicoot.

    What have we done to deserve all these 2D remakes of old games as of late? [​IMG]
