It's always hard when a new project gets announced but information remains scarce (WCATV2). Fortunately so far news has kept coming in with regards to Wing Commander Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance. I still haven't even gotten over the multiplayer confirmation yet. For today it looks like WCP GBA developer Raylight has updated their webpage with a special Wing Commander section. Some questions are answered, new questions are raised, and there is some familiar text.
One of the defining game sagas of the last decade is landing on the Nintendo GameBoy Advance with "Wing Commander Prophecy." Thanks to Destination Software Inc., Raylight gets the license for its space shooter previously called "Star Giants" and will bring a portable verison of "Wing Commander Prophecy" that will look as close as possible to the original PC version thanks to their "Blue Roses" 3D technology for the AGB.Sounds great! You can check out their new section here. Be sure to have a look around the rest of their site as well. There are plenty of neat looking older Star Giants and other Blue Roses screenshots on the site to whet our appetite until actual WCP GBA screenshots are available.
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)
