Originally released in 1988 on the 8-bit machines, Bionic Commando hasn't been heard of since the '99 GBA edition, but that's about to change as Capcom is reviving the franchise. Nathan Spencer, our bionic hero, has been framed by his superiors and is on death row as a new terrorist group BioRain destroys Ascension City with an experimental weapon. Armed with his grappling arm, Spencer is the only one who can infiltrate the city and find out what's going on. The title is being developed by GRIN, known for Ubisoft's Ghost Recon.

Taking its inspiration from its 8-bit namesake released on the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1988, Bionic Commando features Nathan Spencer (voiced by former lead singer of Faith No More, Mike Patton), a government operative who represents the ultimate fusion of man and machine. After distinguishing himself in a fierce conflict against the Imperials, Spencer is betrayed and falsely imprisoned by the very people he unquestioningly served.
