PSX Extreme writes: "You may be a little confused, and ask yourself "wait, didn't we already know that we'd be getting a Bionic Commando next-gen game?" The answer is yes. So what's Bionic Commando Rearmed? An actual remake of the original 8-bit game released 20 years ago. Where as Bionic Commando will be a full-fledged 3D adventure, this Rearmed remake will remain a 2D action side-scroller that'll debut on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live as a downloadable title this Spring.
The shooting and grappling mechanics will remain untouched in this remake, so don't worry about the game messing with your nostalgic memories. But, what Capcom will be doing is adding new weapons to the mix, which means you've got the ability to cause more damage. Additionally, a pair of gamers can come together and play Rearmed in 2 player co-op mode."
