Fact Sheet:

Capcom unveils the next evolution in 3D side-scrolling action with Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. Nathan Spencer returns as the daring elite soldier equipped with special bionic abilities.

He’ll be met by plenty of gun-toting soldiers and mechanized threats ready to give him a hostile greeting. Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 improves upon the visual achievements of its predecessor with the addition of more detailed character models, textures, and vibrant colors. New player mechanics will add another strategic layer of platforming to the overall experience and the famous bionic arm will be getting a major makeover delivering a more dynamic bionic experience to the player.

He can jump now?! OMG I didn't think current-gen games had the capability to employ such an advanced technology!

Never played Rearmed, but the soundtrack was effin' amazing. Like, 'you need to own this and put it in your car' amazing.

Rearmed was - and this is - done with a ton of tongue in cheek humour. The drum up for the jump mechanic in the trailer is that; humour.

In the first game there's even a dialogue exchange about jumping to conclusions and not being able to jump at all. :D

This "Jumping" thing will never take off. Who's idea was that anyway?

    aphex187 Shoreline is the big stinker when it comes to desync. The other maps are pretty much sewed up for performance and network. I think the man problem is that you have no clue on what region you are conn (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 But on a side note the devs are in plain sight talking constantly about netcode and what they are doing. It's constantly updated and they are probably the most transparent devs I've come across (3 Hours ago)
