Axis of Evil hitting both LIVE and PSN this week


Capcom’s Rocketmen: Axis of Evil will be making its way to Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday, and PlayStation Network on the following day. The game will set you back 800 Microsoft Points ($10) if you’re an Xbox Arcader, and probably the same amount if you’re looking to get it from PSN.

Rocketmen is a top-down cel-shaded shooter with some RPG elements, like customizable characters, and promises an engaging storyline where your goal is to save the solar system from the tyrannical Legion of Terra. You do this by joining the Alliance of Free Planets and kicking ass with fellow Rocketmen Nick Sion and Alec Mink.

You can either go through the game solo or, thanks to the 4-player co-op mode, bring three of your buddies along for the weapon upgrading, object collecting, alien slaying, galaxy saving ride.
