Bionic Commando Rearmed pushed back

Downloadable remake of Capcom's NES action game will miss May launch target, publisher admits.


Given that this week began with the Memorial Day holiday, it would be an ideal time for Capcom to give gamers a refresher course on its old soldier, Bionic Commando. Unfortunately, that won't happen; today the publisher confirmed that the downloadable PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 remake of its Bionic Commando NES game will miss its targeted May release window.

According to the "Communicator" section of the publisher's official Web site, "All we can tell you is that the game is done and is more awesome than pure liquid awesome. Our troops right now are in the trenches, battling with bugs and submission procedures."

Rearmed was originally announced for a summer release back in January. No new release date for the project was given. The upcoming revamped retail edition of Bionic Commando is set for launch on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year. Both games are being developed by Swedish studio GRIN.
