Capcom Still Has "Ace Up Its Sleeve" For Bionic Commando

Illustration for article titled Capcom Still Has Ace Up Its Sleeve For Bionic Commando

And not any ace, says Bionic Commando producer Ben Judd in his ear wax shirt, but a "fucking ace". At a small event for the launch of Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Judd said that the downloadable title was doing way better than it had been targeted. "There were people at Capcom who told me not to make this game," Judd said. While BC:R is doing well, Judd says that it won't do nearly as well as the upcoming 3D version, which has apparently gotten a recent control tweak to make the game less frustrating. "Store retail games always do better than downloadable games," he added. As Judd goes off to Sweden to oversee developer GRIN's finishing of Bionic Commando, he stated:

We still have a fucking ace up our sleeve. It's an ace, a fucking ace... At TGS (Tokyo Game Show), the Capcom booth stage is going to make people's balls pucker up. It's going to be big.

When questioned further, Judd would not reveal what this ace was. Wonder what Capcom still has left to announce for Bionic Commando... Thanks Jon for the iPhone pic!

I'll wait for about ten reviews of the new Bionic Commando before giving it a shot.

Don't get me wrong, Grin did a fantastic job with rearmed. But that's like saying someone slapped updated graphics on Street Fighter II and omg it's an awesome game! (Grin did more than that, I know - it's very, very good). My point is they would have had to deviate significantly from the source to screw it up.

The Big New Bionic Commando coming to Blu-Ray and HD-DVD doesn't have that advantage. Not many franchises survived the transition to 3D unscathed (I'm looking at you, Sonic. And Castlevania. Metroid and Mario, you guys were fine - and an exception to the rule).

Fucking Ace or no, judgment shall be reserved!
