We crossed our fingers and hoped it would happen... and it has! Raylight has apparently announced at the E3 that they will be producing a Wing Commander game for the GameBoy Advance. IGN Pocket has the wonderful, wonderful news in this article. Here's the important bit:
The team informed us that they recently signed with Destination Software to produce Game Boy Advance versions of Wing Commander Prophecy, the PC space-combat game released several years ago, as well as Freekstyle, the soon-to-be-released PlayStation 2 over-the-top motocross game. Both games will use the team's BlueRoses technology for their 3D engines.
A new Wing Commander game, people... a new Wing Commander game!
Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
