Just got a press release sent in my mailbox with the official date of the Red Star, April 24, 2007. The Red Star has had a long journey that begun when Acclaim developed it, to Acclaim going bankrupt to XS Games getting the rights and finally multiple delays. But it’s really coming out this time as a budget title (only $20!) and the gameplay is like Smash TV meets Ikaruga. If you want to see a little bit about the history of the Red Star GameSetWatch discovered kidfenris who has been patiently waiting for the game since 2004. On his live journal page he has an archive of the cover art and the delays (this is the final one!).
