    CAPCOM ANNOUNCES RETURN OF BIONIC COMMANDO

    Classic action title rearmed for the next-gen

    London – 16 October, 2007 – Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed a return for one of its classic franchises with the announcement that Bionic Commando is in development for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Sony Computer Entertainment’s PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) and PC platforms.

    Taking its inspiration from its 8-bit namesake released on the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1988, Bionic Commando features Nathan Spencer (voiced by former lead singer of Faith No More, Mike Patton), a government operative who represents the ultimate fusion of man and machine. After distinguishing himself in a fierce conflict against the Imperials, Spencer is betrayed and falsely imprisoned by the very people he unquestioningly served.

    Three years later, on the day he is due to be executed for his supposed crimes, an experimental weapon detonates in Ascension City, unleashing an immensely powerful earthquake coupled with a radiation shockwave that leaves the city in ruins, wiping out its populace. Military intelligence suggests that a large terrorist search force has moved in and occupied Ascension City, but as yet their motives remain unclear. With the terrain in ruins and the terrorists in control of Ascension City’s air defences the FSA has only one option open to them – the reactivation of Nathan Spencer.

    Bionic Commando harnesses the power of the latest generation of hardware to fully exploit the swing mechanic that made the original title so unique. The ruins of Ascension City and its surroundings provide an engaging environment of towering buildings, suspended roadways and monorails, deep canyons and sheer rock faces that allow gamers to traverse each area via multiple routes using swinging, rappeling, climbing and wall-walking techniques.

    An expertly trained operative, Spencer is able to target and take out enemies while hanging upside down, climbing a building or even in mid-swing. At close quarters, the bionic arm packs a mean punch, while from a distance, objects such as boulders and cars can be grabbed and launched at enemies.

    The development team behind Bionic Commando represents a unique and compelling collaboration of cultures and skills, consisting of an American Producer living in Japan, a Japanese Creative Advisor and highly-rated Swedish developer GRIN providing a European influence. This partnership provides a further example of Capcom’s strategy to work with the best developer talent, whilst maintaining the unique elements of creativity and approach to game design for which Capcom is renowned.

    The official Bionic Commando website is now live at www.bioniccommando.com

        He looks like Tommy Lee (Minus the tattoos)... Maybe that's why his arm is so big?

          Nah, it's because they got Freddy Rodriguez to do the motion capture. They screwed up and mirrored the image though.

              I'm more excited for Street Fighter 4, I just hope they don't make it wholly 3D.

                    I am actually looking forward more to the remake of the original they are about to release.
                    It is like $10 for xbox live and playstation network, and supposed to be for PC as well.
                    I spent months playing the original over and over as a little kid in the 80s (early 90s?) and still have the game for the 8-bit NES.

                          Just an update.

                          I have been playing this game a LOT the past few days, and it is AWESOME!!! There is a cool trailer included, and I had to do some converting and stuff, but got it posted to youtube:
                          [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwvnR028Fm8[/media]

                          Remember if it shows up in a little pop up window, you can click through to a better rez version.

                          Also, the controler I got works great and was easy to set up.
                          And this official trailer was just released for the game. I love the music and watched it 3-4 times.

                          http://kotaku.com/5037996/bionic-com...launch-trailer

                          I have beat the game once on easy, but there are tons of things to unlock and hidden secrets, so I will be playing this for a long time, and I haven't even tried out the multi-player yet.

                              I am not sure when I will get Rearm the 5 dollar price diference annoys me.

                              I think I might just play with the keyboard. I am so used to it from emulators. I have been using the arrow keys and numpad since 2000 for SNES, NES, and Genesis games.
