Due out early next year, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 gives the famously flat-footed, bionic-armed Nathan Spencer the ability to jump.

That's right, Spencer has knees and he's not afraid to use them.

The sequel to the popular downloadable game will remain disc-free when it hits the Playstation Network and Xbox Live in the first quarter of 2011, Capcom says.

Besides knees, Spencer also gets new weapons, attacks and enhancements for his bionic arm.

The FatShark developed game will include new physics-based puzzles, two-player cooperative play, enhanced graphics and an all new musical score inspired by NES-era sound effects by the same team behind the original soundtrack. And the cut-scene art was designed by massive art studio Massive Black.

Unfortunately, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 was one of the few games shown at this year's Captivate that we weren't able to play.
