Upcoming Video Game - Bionic Commando

Publisher: Capcom
Release Date: TBA
Engine: Diesel

No that is not a misprint.  Capcom is making a remake of the NES classic available for PCs and consoles alike.

Initial speculation pegged the game as a sandbox third person action game, similar to games such as Spider-Man 2 or The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. However, more recent information suggests it will be more linear. The player will be able to swing around Ascension City and other environments such as canyons, which will feature multiple routes that will require players to use various swinging techniques. Spencer is also able to target enemies while hanging upside down, climbing a building or even in mid-swing, while using an implement called the Bionic Arm which can be used to attack enemies at close range. He can also use it to grab and launch objects such as boulders and cars at enemies.

The game will take place ten years after the NES installment. According to Capcom's press release, this iteration follows Nathan Spencer (voiced by Mike Patton, Ex-Faith No More lead singer ), a government operative working in the fictional Ascension City, where he is betrayed by his own government and falsely imprisoned. Before his execution, an experimental weapon detonates in Ascension City, unleashing an earthquake along with a radioactive shockwave that leaves the city destroyed and wiping out its populace, with the threat of an invasion from a terrorist force.

Super Joe, a supporting character from the original NES version, will also appear in the sequel.  He will be voiced by Steven Blum. The character is now identified as Joseph Gibson, one of the main characters from Mercs.
