Bionic Commando Announced  by Craig D at 10:20

Capcom today announced a next-generation remake of the 1988 NES title Bionic Commando. The game is in production at GRIN in Sweden but does have Capcom's usual Japanese creative influence. We can expect to see Bionic Commando on PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, sometime in 2008 I'd guess.

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.

A little more information and a few screenshtos can be found on the official website.
