Okay, I’m now hyped for Bionic Commando:Re-Armed

Earlier this week we posted about the rumored remake of Bionic Commando coming to XBLA and PSN. We now have solid facts about the title and video. Woot!

Hit the jump to see the facts and trailer.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Capcom posted a fact sheet about Bionic Commando:Re-armed Via a Press Release.

Bionic Commando Rearmed will contain the following features
• Classic Bionic Commando gameplay focused around the use of the bionic grappling arm
• 2-player co-op mode
• Total modern visual revamp, including dynamic shadows, particle effects and environmental damage
• Reworking of musical score
• Cross-game interoperability – complete specific parts of Bionic Commando Rearmed to unlock new content and hints for the Bionic Commando sequel
• In-game art designed by one of Capcom’s most talented artists, Toshiaki Mori

I’m now starting to feel some hype build for the 2 upcoming Bionic Commando games. Maybe it’s the “Tarzan” factor meaning: the freedom of swinging from object to object. Anyone else getting hyped for these Bionic Commando titles?

  1. Yeah, this game is going to be hot! They won’t be able to save Hitler’s brain this time!

  2. so stocked this was one of my all time favorite NES games!

  3. Wow, I just went from 0 to 88 without Mr.Fusion. SUPERGHOST has it right. That looks hot. A pattern does seem to be emerging. Do a complete remake in “next-gen” fury, then take the original classic game for a spin on Live Arcade with a nice face lift. It’s definitely a way for Microsoft to stick it to the Wii Virtual Console for doing the same sorta thing.

    This [insert game] gets its latest update, why not release the original or one of it’s earlier sequels on or around the same time. That’s the strategy and Nintendo isn’t the only one capable of doing it. I can hear Iwata now. Doh!

  4. I used to love the original on the C64 years ago. Hope this is fun and not just a nostalgia trip ending in disappointment.

  5. I can’t believe how cool this looks. I remember beating the first one back in the day, and I am ready to do it again! I wish they had done this with Rush’n’Attack or Rygar even. Oh well can’t complain that much! LOL

  6. […] Announced last month was the Xbox Live Arcade remake of Bionic Commando which pretty much hyped everyone but my Grandma. The remake pays homage to the NES classic and I mean who doesn’t like using a Bionic Arm? The title is coming out in Spring 2008 and you do want to know more about it right? Right! […]
