Well that was quick: Debut trailer for Rocket Knight

It’s only been a few days since the announcement and already we are getting gameplay footage of the new Rocket Knight game. Who knew my guardian angel was A) into videogames and B) a total badass?

The trailer shows what has to be the earliest section of the game. It looks to me like a classic scenario. Sparkster starts fighting with his old-time rival Axel Gear only to be interrupted by a ludicrous boss — this time, a mechanized wolf — that takes up the entire screen.

I may not be into the visual style so much, but the color palette and most other aspects of Rocket Knight appear to be on the right track. It pretty much goes without saying that this XBLA/PSN/Steam title will have some mad expectations to live up to. What are you guys thinking so far?
