I think we all know that a Bionic Commando game is in the works for the PS3, 360, and PC. When I heard the news, I was extremely saddened to hear that the title wasnít slated for the Wii. I have been a huge fan of Bionic Commando since I played the original in the arcades. My favorite by far is the NES version of Bionic Commando. The GBC semi-sequel is an excellent game as well. The problem is, I felt that Capcom never really explored the Bionic Commando franchise. There are so many different gameplay elements that can be tied to the series, I see the franchise as having near-limitless potential. This brings me back to the announcement of the new Bionic Commando. While I am extremely happy that Capcom is revisiting the series, I canít help feeling let down that they ignored the Wii on this pass.
Or at least, thatís how it seemed at first. While there seemed to be no hope for a Wii version, we found out that it was quite the opposite. A Capcom employee came out and said; in a much more eloquent way, that if we wanted to see Bionic Commando on the Wii, we would have to voice that opinion. Hearing that was like music to my ears. It gives us some indication that Capcom is at least entertaining the idea. They obviously arenít sure if there is a crowd on the Wii that would want this game. Thatís why we need to speak up, just as they challenged us to do.
