Leading videogame publisher and developer Capcom has today announced it is producing a brand new iteration in the Bionic Commando series for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms.
The eponymous title will include the infamous hook tool used in the 1988 original, allowing players to grapple their way through any given environment, battle enemies, and wield various objects to their advantage.
The story revolves around a battle hardened super-solider named Nathan Spencer, who after serving his country in numerous conflict over the years, is framed and sentenced to death for crimes which he did not commit. However, when Ascension City is left in ruins following the application of an experimental terrorist weapon, Spencer reluctantly agrees to set out and quell the situation once again.
Capcom revealed that the game would be a collaborative affair between a number of different sectors, including a US-based producer, Japanese creative advisor and Swedish developer GRIN.
An estimated release date for the project has yet to be issued.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

I hope this isn't the big announcement for ps3 fans they were talking about....I can't help but laugh because I keep thinking about the huge let down their 3 HUGE ANNOUNCEMENTS were at TGS...I can't even remember what the announcements were--I think ps2 games maybe.

wtf??? If this is actually the "Big" announcement they're talking about than there's nothing more left to say then: Go to He***ll Capcom-Bast_ard_s >.<
They're driving me insane with their ridiculous support for PS3, unthankful shi*#*t of a company. No one would even know them without the Playstation-Brand
Edit: "stomping the brake" - I was too lazy to watch the timer at this Capcom-Site, but still I have the feeling that the real announcement won't blow us away at all - come on Capcom, show me that I was wrong, with my last comment

HOLD ON YOU GUYS thats not the big annoucnement the timer is still going. We have 23 hours left..
- 4:12am EDT - October 16th, 2007
what the ****, is this the announcement??? that's just sad....just sad.
EDIT: I'm glad the timer is still going, this would have bin the most stupid big announcement in history

@TylerPwnsYou1986....thanks for the info...do you have the link so I can keep an eye on it?
I was hoping this wasn't the announcement. I was going to be really disappointed.

it's like they're teasing us yo. I guess Bionic Commando may hold some weight but it's good that this wasn't they're big announcement. Alot of folks would be pissed. To me screw Capcom. Why are devs playing games with us??? Why do we gotta be delayed, dismayed, toyed with. I mean don't they remember when it was no 360 and these chumps were developing for nintendo and sony? Where's the commitment to the future of games?? Instead we gotta be sucker punched by these lazy devs. The kits are there and if i was a dev i'd be all about creating on the latest technology. Yet we'll be the ones left hanging again...

Wow I'm amazed. Not by the actual announcement but at the sheer stupidity of some of the comments

Apparently this is not the big announcement. Hope they do the franchise justice on this game.

Was this the the big announcement
- 7:21am EDT - October 16th, 2007
Well I can only hope its better than the original. I had that game for my old Commodore 64 and it drove me round the bend, I found it so diffiucult, I couldn't get anywhere on it.

This IS not the BIG announcement, you drones! The timer is still going, and this game is multiplatform. IM pretty sure the announcement has to do with the PS3 only, or they wouldn't be making the comment they did. Also, I'm pretty excited about this game. I loved the original and Capcom is good at remaking their old games.

hey, did anybody read my other post on the"capcom big an..." article. well if you read it you will see tha i was right, atlease i am right if this is the so-called big annoucement. any ways as a re-cap, i basically say that capcom can go shove it, because they betray my trust a long time ago, and that still stands true. if this is for real, then capcom sucks. . .

Hah! I totally remember playing this in the arcades..man was that fun. Up there with The Avengers and that game where you collect pieces of the big gun...oh and the one where you're the fat guy that breathes fire...what were those games called...
- 9:33am EDT - October 16th, 2007
Trust me...I know this is not the big announcement. But out of all the games Capcom can make a sequel to they choose this? I think mustang750r said i best....."u gatta be kidding me". This has just raised the bar off the charts for this "BIG" announcement thats supposed to be coming up......I hope they can pull it off.
- 9:57am EDT - October 16th, 2007
This better not be the announcement. If it is, Capcom just lost a lot, and I mean a lot, of fans. I mean, this is supposed to change our view of them? They're releasing it on the damn 360 also.
- 10:10am EDT - October 16th, 2007
OMFG thats some stupid announcement...i hope thats not the big ps fan anouncement >.> cuz it isn t PS fan it's mutiplatform anouncement :P capcom if this is it u gotta be kiddin me
