Rocket Knight Blasting a Release Date

Rocket Knight is making a triumphant return after a 16 year hiatus and luckily, we won’t have to wait long until you can take command of Sparkster yet again.  Konami has revealed via their Facebook page that this 2.5D revival will hit the PlayStation Network on May 18th.

Rocket Knight puts players in the shoes and behind the rocket pack of Sparkster, a badass opossum who must destroy the entire Wolf Army along with his nemesis Axel Gear.  The game is a side-scrolling platformer where you must use your jet pack and sword to take down opposing forces and make your way through each level.
