According to information published in a recent issue of Famitsu
magazine (translated by IGN
), Capcom plans to release a 3D update of Bionic Commando
on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in Japan this Spring. That would be the Famicom classic
, mind you, not the forthcoming corn-rowed franchise revival
bearing the same name and the same multifaceted appendage.
Initial details suggest that "Bionic Commando: Master D Revival Plan
" will feature 3D graphics, a simultaneous two-player mode and an undoubtedly tenuous "connection" to the new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game. IGN also presumes that the gameplay will remain of the side-scrolling variety, making Master D Revival Plan
akin to Capcom's criminally unappreciated PSP Mega Man
remake, Mega Man: Powered Up
