And yes, in the top right corner is the text to the spoken opening of Knight Rider.

Please not that it is possible that this image can change from the final release.

When the news of the Knight Rider DVD Season 1 broke last month, there was some question about an extra mentioned on the set. There was an item listed as "Knight Rider 2000", which caused some confusion around the various communities as to wether it was the Knight Rider 2000 movie or a Documentary by the same name. I was able to get an answer from Universal, and they had this to say:
Knight Rider 2000 is definitely going to be in the set and it is the TV movie (not a documentary).
It doesn't make much sense for a TV movie that took place after the last season would be on a set of the first season, the forth season collection would make more sense. But as a beggar, I'm not going to be a chooser. As to other extras and specifications they have yet to be determined. For the most current information, you can always check back here or visit Universal home video.

Michael Pajaro of knightridermovie.com was fortunate to have the oppurnity to meet with the developers of Davliex at this years e3 conference. He had this to say about the experience:

I visited Davilex at the E3 gaming convention today. The new game definitely looks like a great improvement over the original. They told me several times how much they listened to comments (complaints) about the first game from fans.

The new game gets away from the kind of boring "search and exlpore" model of the original. Instead, it is much more combat-oriented. This is a bit of a deviation from the actual series, but it should help game-play a lot. The reflection mapping on KITT looks really good, and the world textures are much better.

I have more screen shots and a preview movie to post later, but for now here are the list of features taken from their marketting presentation:


New interactive fighting system
KITT has access to 3 different type of weapons
Laser
Plasma gun
Missiles

Fight spectacular battles against enemies
Garthe and Goliath
KARR
Different types of robots
Choppers
Turrets
Laser protecting system


KITT has an electric shield to protect himself from enemy attacks
Use KITT’s Micro Jam to open gates and control elevators and Laser protecting systems
Interact with the environment and solve puzzles
11 new story based missions
New in-game animation system
Improved visual effects
Improved controls
Energy recharge system

You can find more info about the game, as well as screen shots and game trailer at knightrideronline.com, knightridermovie.com and at Davilex's official website knightridergame.com (although it still contains information about the previous game)

pavanbadal was amazing enough to send us this copy of the dvd trailer! check it out!

the video doesn't have any universal tags, but it looks pretty authentic. the quicktime video itself contains some tags to universal. it doesn't mention any of the extras either, but a nice selection of the greatest bits
