Looks hot.

However, I finally played Ninja Five-O recently and it shits all over Bionic Commando AND Shinobi. Going back to BC was atrocious.

Ah, the storyline. The original NES iteration of Bionic Commando had, in its original Japanese guise, a cast of futuristic Nazis standing between the hero and the final boss, an 8-bit effigy of Adolf Hitler. For its Western localization, more explicit references to the Third Reich were removed, with the Nazis referred to as Badds, and Hitler acquiring the nom de guerre of Master D.

It's these latter cast of rogues that's set to make a return: "Since Bionic Commando Rearmed is an homage to the original, it will closely follow the story of the original," says Judd, "Imperials? Yes. Master D. Ohhh yes.
:(

I'm saddened that the Nazi stuff didn't make it over but I don't feel its THAT important. I will probably buy this over the 3D version.

Incredibly cool, looks like they are basing it on the NES version which is great.
IGN Preview said:
Bionic Commando Rearmed looks set to take its cues from the NES version of the title, Simon Viklund noting that, "The arcade version may have been the first, but there's no doubt that the NES version is the one that deserves to be revisited." The home version of Bionic Commando refined gameplay, introducing a more flexible Bionic Arm that allowed for more acrobatic play. As Judd recalls, "The NES version is the one that is the most different from the rest, and it is also regarded by many to be the best. The NES version also had a more unified and understandable set of enemies and a memorable story line."
Yup, that appears to be the case. :D

The best thing about this is that it lets you unlock a different player skin so you don't have to play as shitty stupid dreadlock douche.

Nazis not making it was duhhh obvious.
Looks like Team Fortress 2 style art.
Does it have Multi?
I'll jump on it if it's good.

edit: Shit video looks hawt! 2p coop! Online? Unlocking skinz for the US version is a VERY smart marketing move. Wow, go Capcom.

Now Konami just needs to port Dracula X Chronicles and 2008 will be the best year ever for HD 2D gaming.

The lighting in these screens really reminds me of LBP's somehow, and that's a *very* good thing :)

wait, I am little confused.

you say that if I get BC:Re, i will be able to unlock and play as the original Joe in the big Bionic Commando game instead of that lame ass, "I-am-so-badass" guy with dreadlocks?

that would be nice.

Oh crap. I loved Bionic Commando back in its day. The grapple hook was so cool and neat when I was a little kid. Graphics and animation are very good for this one.
