One of the major video game retailers has finally gotten a listing for Prophecy Advance. EB's website has a listing for January 23, 2003 (ship date). You can check it out for yourself here. This is the first we've seen about a 2003 release. Hopefully the date will change and it'll move up a bit to match earlier expectations. Kaybee has also updated its Prophecy listing with a delay to December 17.
Wing Commander Prophecy gives you unequaled visual excitement with these new features: a new space combat engine, a new terrifying alien menace, and new spectacular graphics and soundtrack. With return appearances by Blair, Maniac, and Rachel, Wing Commander Prophecy opens a new trilogy in the Wing Commander universe packing more punch than any other space combat game out there. Wing Commander Prophecy is the ultimate in sci-fi combat simulations. Blast into the future today!
Note that this was one of the old Prophecy preview paragraphs, and decisions on future Wing Commander games for the GBA are not yet final. First person to report on the listing of the game at GameStop wins a cookie!
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)
