Release Date for Bionic Commando
Announced

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.
