A whole bunch of exciting new video game hardware has come out in the past year, and it's been quite a while since we last asked what systems people would most prefer a new Wing Commander game on. The latest console and handheld devices out today are more powerful than high end PCs from just a couple years ago, so any of these platforms could produce stunning results. Which would you like to see?!
The last poll was our annual pulse on what fans are expecting for the year ahead. Like most years, the results were mixed. About a third of folks aren't particularly optimistic, but about 40% expect another big year. Take a peek at our 2017 roundup for a summary of all the fantastic things that happened last year - we're sure this year will be at least that amazing!

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)
