    Ok, not the new one, but the original...sort of.
    Bionic Commando: Master D Revival Plan, a 3D remake of the original Bionic Commando set to hit the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Store later this year.
    Aside from the 3D visuals, the game promises to maintain the flavor of the original title, which presumably means pure side-scrolling gameplay. Capcom is adding a simultaneous two player mode, secret areas, and some elements that will connect the classic title to the new full 3D Bionic Commando.

    The Bionic Commando remake will be released as a paid download through Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Store. Pricing hasn't been set, but a Japanese release is planned for this Spring.


    The title sucks, but Bionic Commando rules, so.....

    Dude this is going down like the Titanic, Women and Children first. I am both a woman and fully immature enough to be considered a child, so Blast goes last.

    Didn't this a sequel according to http://www.bioniccommando.com/ with the same name?

    Here's the plot from wikipedia:

    The game will take place ten years after the original NES Bionic Commando game.[5] According to Capcom's press release, this iteration follows Nathan Spencer (voiced by Faith No More lead singer Mike Patton)[6], a government operative working in the fictional Ascension City, where he is betrayed by his own government and falsely imprisoned. Before his execution, an experimental weapon detonates in Ascension City, unleashing an earthquake along with a radioactive shockwave that leaves the city destroyed and wiping out its populace, with the threat of an invasion from a terrorist force.[4]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bionic_Commando_(sequel)

    Mike Patton as Nathan "Radd" Spencer = Awesome :up:

    I wish they use this "Radd"

    Reggae Hobo looks with hairy armpit Spencer

    Since Hitler and the Nazis won't be in the game…

    - M. Bison should be the final boss since he looks a lot like the dude in the concept art.

    - Guile and Cammy should be available as reinforcements or selectable for co-op play.

    - Imagine fighting all those Shadowloo baddies instead of the "Imperials"

    Huge crossover potential here. I'd be nice to see Bionic Commando and Street Fighter in somewhat of a shared universe

    that would be appropriate considering both properties were made by Capcom.

    This looks pretty awesome. It should be a great way to warm up for the big remake.
