Capcom's Rocketmen on XBLA, PSN this week

Capcom's download shooter Rocketmen: Axis of Evilwill be out on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this week, the company has revealed.

The colourful blaster is based on the card game of the same name, letting you create your own blue-haired spaceman before shooting lasers at baddies all day long.

"Those of you who have given Microsoft all your money can snag off of Live on Wednesday, March 5 for a measly 800 points," saysCapcom's US blog. "For those of you who worship at the altar of Blu-ray, you can get your Rocketmen on starting Thursday, March 6 for the non-robot sum of $10 American."

It looks like the top-down blaster (which plays a bit like Geometry Wars mashed with Gauntlet) will be on XBLA this Wednesday, and European PSN in about a year (if its track record is anything to go by).
