Bionic Commando to Touch Down in May

Capcom today announced that Bionic Commando will see the light of day in Europe in the month of May.

The original Bionic Commando saw the light of day 22 years ago in an 8-bit version  on the NES (yes I had it, gah, I feel old!) and this new next generation version looks to encapsulate the bionic arm and the swing mechanic that made the original so popular.

"Bionic Commando features Nathan Spencer (voiced by former lead singer of Faith No More, Mike Patton who also featured in The Darkness), as a government operative who, after distinguishing himself in a fierce conflict against the Imperials, is betrayed and falsely imprisoned by the very people he unquestioningly served."

"Five 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."

No definitive date yet, but at least we know the month ... May it is then.
