If you have a 360 and want to play Bionic Commando, you’ll be in luck because you’ll get to play the demo first. As a fan of the original version and its remake, I wish I could have an advanced copy of the game, but at least the demo will just do… whenever it becomes available. There was no mention of a PS3 demo yet [ :( ] .
Si tienen un 360 y quieren jugar Bionic Commando, tendrán suerte porque jugarán la “demo” primero. Como un aficionado de la versión original y de su nueva versión, quisiera poder conseguir una copia avanzada del juego, pero por lo menos, la “demo” será suficiente… cuando sea que esté disponible. No se mencionó nada de la “demo” para el PS3 aún [ :( ].

Capcom is excited to announce that the demo for Bionic Commando will launch on Xbox Live in the coming weeks! Focusing on Bionic Commando’s exhilarating online multiplayer mode, the demo will feature “Vertigo,” one of the game’s 16 multiplayer maps where 8 players will go head to head in an all out Deathmatch. But this is no ordinary Deathmatch. Swing through the air while showering your opponents with hot lead, use the grapple to zip to safety before a grenade explodes at your feet and laugh as enemies plummet from the tops of skyscrapers following a well aimed zip-kick to the chest!
The full version of Bionic Commando will feature Solo & Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. But make no mistake, multiplayer is just one part of the new Bionic Commando experience.
In single player mode, Bionic Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan “R.A.D.” Spencer. Time has not been kind to Spencer: Five years after his heroic defeat of the Imperials, he has been betrayed by the government he swore to serve, imprisoned for crimes he didn’t commit, and sentenced to death. Bionic Commando transposes the much loved swing-and-shoot gameplay of the 8-bit original onto a stunning 3D environment of towering buildings, suspended roadways and monorails, deep canyons and sheer rock faces, which are traversed using swinging, scaling, climbing and wall-walking techniques.
The retail version of Bionic Commando will ship for Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 on Tuesday May 19th! Until then, check out the online multiplayer demo available to download later this month.

Get Bionic on May 19th!
Capcom is pleased to confirm that the highly-anticipated Bionic Commando will ship to retailers in North America on Tuesday, May 19, 2009 for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Reloaded for the latest generation of hardware, Bionic Commando sees the return of the ultimate fusion of man and machine as Nathan Spencer is back 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. However, when bio-terrorists detonate an experimental device over Ascension City and then occupy it, there is only one option open to the authorities – reactivate Nathan Spencer. The upcoming new generation game, first released 20 years ago with the 8-bit original on the NES, is making a big comeback when it hits retail shelves this spring as it features an in-depth multiplayer mode that will have you swinging with friends around the globe via Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.
The PC version of Bionic Commando is due to ship shortly after the console release. More details surrounding the PC version will be following in the upcoming months.
Today Capcom spotlights a new enemy type in Bionic Commando, the Polycraft. These VTOL aerial gunships are wickedly agile, cunning, and sport a veritable arsenal of weapons to blast Nathan “Rad” Spencer to kingdom come. Just one of these guys can be considered a mini-boss, but they also appear in flights.
Polycraft are highly maneuverable air units, designed for quick aerial assault and interception. The BioReign force brought with them a large number of the units to Ascension City. Polycraft are easily refitted to excel in various situations, and can act as both troop transporters and heavily-armed missile gunships.
The compact design of the Polycraft combined with its unsurpassed aerial maneuverability allows it to fly in narrow and tight environments, close to ground without risk of collision, making it perfect for tactical surveys and interceptions.
Polycraft are sturdy and resilient machines, but analysis has shown that the armor plating over the engine is relatively thin. The engine is placed on the underside of the Polycraft, so an assault from directly underneath has the best chance of success.
Bionic Commando es uno de los juegos de Capcom que no había tenido una continuación desde hace muchos años. Nathan Spencer, el personaje principal, se había quedado descansando en el pasado dentro de la generación 8-bit hasta hace poco. Ahora conocido con el nombre de Bionic Commando: Rearmed, es una nueva versión del juego NES de 1988 que se encuentra disponible en XBLA y PlayStation Network. Obviamente me dio ganas de jugar este juego chévere. Para los principiantes al mundo de Bionic Commando, Nathan no puede saltar, pero utiliza su brazo biónico para transportarse y se defiende con una arma. Aunque el juego lleva la clasificación M (solamente por una escena al final del juego), estas fotos explicarán a cualquiera a realizar las técnicas de control avanzadas de Nathan.
Bionic Commando is one of Capcom’s games that have not had a sequel for many years. Nathan Spencer, the main character, was stuck resting inside the 8-bit generation. Now known as Bionic Commando: Rearmed, it is a remake of the 1988 NES game available on XBLA and PlayStation Network. Obviously I felt like playing this cool game. For newbies into the world of Bionic Commando, Nathan is unable to jump, but uses his bionic arm to transport himself and uses a weapon to defend himself. Although the game rated M (only because of one scene at the end of the game), these pictures will explain anyone how to make Nathan’s advanced control techniques.
