THQ announce Rocket Riot for XBLA

THQ have announced they will be brining a new title to XBLA, which goes by the name Rocket Riot. It is currently set for release sometime in 2008. The game is billed as an “action-packed side-view shooter featuring a bazooka-wielding jetpack soldier,” which sounds very exciting to us. Well, to be honest anything with both a bazooka and jetpack piques our interest, regardless of the content of the rest of the game. Rocket Riot also boasts  a “highly stylized 8-bit era feel,” and the option for “players blast their way through the environment against enemies or multiplayer foes online” according to the publisher

CodeGlue, the developers, comment the game will have 80 single player missions, set in many different themes and zany worlds, 4 multiplayer modes against up to 8 players on Xbox Live or up to 4 players on a single screen. Competitive teamed based CTF modes will be on show too as well in a “completely destructible environment“.
