As is the case with the eponymous character himself, Capcom thinks it's time to implant newfangled "Three Dee" technology into an old intellectual property. Gamespot
reveals that the Bionic Commando
franchise is set to return in a new game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The robotic revamp, cleverly dubbed "Bionic Commando," follows one Nathan Spencer as he runs from the law (he was framed!) through a ruined city (
terrorists blew it up!). His only companion? The trusty grappling arm, perfect for swinging across gaps, hurling objects, rappelling down buildings and rudely reaching across the table for the salt.
Capcom is collaborating with Swedish studio GRIN (surely you remember its Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
PC conversions!) on the project, which currently lacks release date and, as you may have noticed, a Wii version.
