Rocketmen this Wednesday on Live

PSN date to be confirmed.

Capcom has confirmed to Eurogamer that Rocketmen: Axis of Evil will be on Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday.

It was responding to the official US blog that said both 360 and PS3 versions would be out this week.

However, those in the Sony camp may have to wait a little longer, as a European date is still to be set in stone. Not normally a problem since US accounts are easy to set up, but since Rocketmen will cost money you'd also need a US credit card to pay for it.

Rocketmen: Axis of Evil looks rather exciting: a top-down two-stick shooter for you and up to three friends. Similar to Monster Madness, or Gauntlet but with guns.

Anyway, the idea was adapted from a collectible card-construction game by WizKids - pointed out by one of our helpful readers - but will have less strategy and much more action.

It all looks really rather promising, and you can expect our review this week.

Pop over to our Rocketmen: Axis of Evil Xbox 360 and PS3 gamepages to find out more.

Alternatively, head over to the Rocketmen card-game website to er, look around.
