Rocketmen counts down to launch

Capcom confirms its downloadable overhead shooter set for release next week on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.


Rocketmen: Axis of Evil

Capcom's first forays into the world of downloadable gaming have been oft-belated, as evidenced by missed launch windows for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Talisman, and Commando 3, but another of the publisher's postponed offerings is finally on its way. The publisher today confirmed that Rocketmen: Axis of Evil is set for launch this coming Wednesday on Xbox Live Arcade, with the PlayStation 3 version arriving on the PlayStation Network the next day.

Developed by A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Games, Rocketmen is an arcade-style overhead shooter based on the WizKids cartoon and constructible strategy game of the same name. In keeping with the theme of the license, Rocketmen lets players customize their characters' appearance and race, which impacts attributes during gameplay.

Rocketmen will sell for 800 Microsoft points ($10) on Live Arcade, and $10 on the PlayStation Network.
