Back from the brink!

While HD console owners can expect to play Capcom's Dark Void on the big screen soon, the company hasn't forgotten about DSi fans, with a portable version available to download to DSi in the coming weeks.

Titled Dark Void Zero, the game takes its visual cues from classic 8-bit shooters such as Metroid as well as Capcom's own MegaMan series. There's also an amusing back-story to why the title is only just seeing the light of day now, having apparently been developed for a special double-screen arcade machine in the year 198X before that project was canned.

The game itself is looking mighty nice and should certainly appeal to the retro blaster fans among you. Check out the official trailer below and polish your jetpack, as Dark Void Zero is due to land this month.
