Sparkster Sequel Coming to XBLA, PSN, and Steam

The 2.5D title, Rocket Knight, will make the series a trilogy.

Fans of the Sega Genesis titles Rocket Knight Adventures and Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2 will be happy to hear that a third iteration in the side-scrolling series is set to release in early 2010.

Rocket Knight, the third title, is 2.5D and now available in HD. According to 1up the game still stars Sparkster, but takes place 15 years after the last title. Since the last game, Sparkster has moved away from the kingdom of Zephyros and been largely inactive. It was not until he noticed that the pigs and opossums had teamed up to fight a new enemy, a wolf army, that Sparkster decided to put himself back in the fray.

Once an enemy, Axel Gear is now a friendly, as he has been transitioned to the Rocket Knight role in Sparkster's absence.

Developer Climax is in charge of development, and are best known for their work on the more recent titles in the Silent Hill series.

Final Fantasy Review Rewind

Final Fantasy is the stuff of legend. No, seriously-- it is. Just ask any enthusiast about the origins of the series. Watch as their eyes gleam while recounting the story of how it all began. Legend has it that a long time ago (1987) in the land of Japan, a fledgling company known as Square (now Square Enix) wasn’t doing so well financially. Despite earlier releases like Rad Racer and 3-D World Runner, their games weren’t selling well enough to pull them out of the slump. It seemed as if all was lost. Wanting to go out with a bang, Square chose to develop a role-playing game. They called it Final Fantasy (*cue epic music*).
