    New Bionic Commando Not for the Wii.....ARRRGH!!!

    I have been wanting another Bionic Commando for many, many years. And now, it's not going to be on the Wii. The original NES game was one of the best ever. It would be so cool to use the Wiimote to sling the bionic arm. It would totally get me into the action. I hope Capcom is just toying with us Nintendo nerds, and they are going to announce a Wii version later.

    It's coming to Wii at the same time Resident Evil 5 does.

    It would be cool gameplay wise, but at the same time they'd have to dumb the game down visually to run on the Wii... and I really dig the epic look of it from the trailer they released. I'm not sure getting a gimped port of Bionic Commando is best.

    sure enough they can ride the coattails of an old classic NES game.. this sort of marketing in gaming is the still the hotness as of late.

    this thread is proof it works.

    i'm not going to think twice about this game just yet.

    That's good to hear. I had looked around for a bit and didn't see anything about a Wii version. I have no problem with toned down graphics, as long as the graphics are good for the Wii. I just hope that all of the attention is not focused on the control scheme, though. It should be a big part, but not the only selling point for the game. Also, if someone has a Wii plus another system, how many would hold out for the Wii version?

    I think Mxyzptlk was being facetious. It's not coming out for the Wii. Just like RE5 isn't.

    You have raised my expectations and dashed them quite expertly. Bravo, sir.

    Maybe Capcom will release it anyway.

    I was just talking about this with my brother before it was announced. I thought the Wii control set up would be a perfect match for a Bionic Commando game. The best BC games were made for Nintendo systems so I was actually shocked by the recent announcement.

    This is another really great reason to get an XBox 360 for me.

    I'm still hoping for a Wii "Castlevania" or "Cabal" though... The "Sin and Punishment" VC release just made me want a Wii Cabal more!

    Haha, sorry about that. I thought the RE5 mention was enough of a clue that I was joking.

    Maybe if Bionic Commando does well enough on the 360/PS3, they might make a sequel/side story just for Wii. Who knows?

    That's cool. It didn't even hear anything on RE5 either. In the meantime I will keep wishing for a Wii version. Who knows, Capcom might throw us a bone and release a Wii Duck Tales game.
