Konami Digital Entertainment today announced that Rocket Knight, a remake of the 2D side-scrolling title first released on the 16-bit SEGA Genesis and later on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, is now available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 MSP, PC download via Steam for $14.99 - the PS3 version will launch on May 18th for $14.99 on PlayStation Network. In Rocket Knight, players take on the role of a fiery opossum named Sparkster who returns home to the Kingdom of Zephyrus after 15 years to find it in shambles. Using wits and a trusty rocket pack, players must steer clear and overcome a hostile wolf army looming to take the lives of the Zephyrus people. As players navigate through the challenges, their rocket pack can be used to ricochet off walls, launch Sparkster through obstacles and enemies in his way, and rocket drill through weak walls to create new passageways.
