While I am eagerly awaiting the release of Dark Void on the 360, I found out a little piece of info on the game. Namely, it was originally supposed to be an NES game. I discovered this when Capcom announced that they are releasing the original, unreleased game for the DSi.
Around two decades later (First, Castlevania: The Adventure, now this game. I'm beginning to notice a pattern, here.) Capcom decides to use the idea for current-gen systems. To mark the occasion, and to give gamers an opportunity to experience some lost video game history, the original game has been announced as a download for DSiWare. From what I see on the video below, it kind of plays like Mega Man with jetpacks, which kind of reminds me of The Rocketeer NES game.
I've been thinking about getting a DSi one day. If I do, I may have to try this game out.
