Choplifter HD: Konami is getting to the chopper

Choplifter HD, the re-imagining of the 80s classic, is getting close to take off. It has recently been picked up by Konami, who will be co-publishing the XBLA title with developer, InXile Entertainment. Prospective rescue pilots can look forward to tearing through war zones to rescue silly civilians from heavily armed, trigger happy soldiers and, of course, zombies.

According to Conrad Zimmerman, who previewed it last month, underneath its HD graphics and flashy explosions it still retains the feel of the original. I must confess that I never played it, or its sequels, back in the day, but Choplifter HD sounds pretty damn good. With 30 levels, bonus objectives and challenging combat, it should be well worth a look. It launches this winter and looking at the bleak weather outside, we are most definitely in winter. Superb.
