Re-Sparked is out in June, includes Genesis masterpiece

Limited Run Games and Konami have announced that the digital version of the Rocket Knight Adventures: Re-Sparked collection will be releasing on Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC on June 11.

Rocket Knight Adventures: Re-Sparked contains the three 16-bit games in the Rocket Knight series. This includes the original Rocket Knight Adventures, the Genesis Sparkster (subtitled Rocket Knight Adventures 2), and the SNES Sparkster (not subtitled). To be clear, Genesis Sparkster and SNES Sparkster are two completely different games featuring the series’ protagonist. Of the included games, one of them is the very best Genesis/Mega Drive ever made, and the other two are games.

Okay, that’s not quite fair. SNES Sparkster and Genesis Sparkster are both decent – maybe even above average – platformers, but they don’t even hold a candle to the original.

Limited Run Games did a round of pre-orders for the physical version of Rocket Knight Adventures: Resparked back in January and promised a digital release for anyone not interested in material possessions, but previously had not announced a date. I scooped up the Ultimate Edition of it at the time. I don’t usually go for special editions because I have enough random game collectibles, but Rocket Knight Adventures is one of my favorite games.

The collection will not only include modern comforts such as save states and rewind, but also a new boss rush mode and a “franchise museum and music player.”
