One of my favorite games for the NES is definitely Bionic
Commando, and I know it makes the short list of quite a few
people as well. A mechanical arm, killing Nazis, and an exploding
head at the end of the game. What's not to love?
As most of you may know there is a new Bionic Commando
game in development for the usual suspects of consoles.
Apparently releasing a new version of Bionic Commando wasn't
enough and Capcom decided to update the original as a
download for Xbox Live Arcade and PSN, to the delight of many
fans including myself. Updated graphics and gameplay are on
the menu for a release in Spring 2008. One odd thing I noticed is
that Nintendo Wii is not on the supported platforms list, which is a
shame, so many developers ignore Nintendo when releasing
updated versions of classic NES games (like Ninja Gaiden).
Check out the video, it illustrates how seamless the transition
from NES to 3D is for this update.
