YouTube video game reviewer IrateGamer got some hands on time with The Rise of COBRA at E3, and put together a nice mini-review.  Along with the review itself, he mentions that Firefly is an end boss for one of the levels, but does specify that we won’t get to battle against the Crimson Twins or Serpentor.  Most interestingly, he shows a quick clip of the roster selection interface, and amongst the characters that we already know about is “Backblast”, a fairly obscure Joe that apparently might have made the cut as a playable character.  We don’t know for sure, but he’s mixed in with a roster that includes many characters we know are playable.  The full list on the roster is:

  • Backblast
  • Agent Helix
  • Shipwreck
  • Beachhead
  • Kamakura
  • Sgt. Flash
  • Duke
  • Scarlett
  • Storm Shadow
  • Baroness
  • Firefly
  • Destro
  • Heavy Duty
  • Ripcord
  • Gung Ho

Obviously it remains to be seen if these are all acually playable characters, or if they’re just included with the unlockable “filecards” that have been mentioned.  Time will tell.  Check out the full review below, and thanks to forum member Imperial Serpentor for the info.
