Bionic Commando: Rearmed Behind the Scenes #3

John Diamonon's Avatar + Posted by John Diamonon on Aug 08, 2008 // Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

Hey PS fans, I have another BCR update for you this week. Before we go to the video, I want to address some of the questions you have about the game.

Will the game have trophy support? We’re working on having trophy support available in the near future.

Will there be a demo available at launch? Yes.

Will this game have remote play functionality? Fosho.

How much will it cost? $9.99

When will this game launch? August 14, 2008!

Are the multiplayer and co-op modes offline or online? Offline, but it’s great. (It’s what we play at the office during lunch.)

Ok, I’m sure you have more questions, and as always, I’ll do my best to answer them.

Here’s the Bionic Commando: Rearmed – Behind the Scenes Video #3. (You can find the other 2 videos on the PS Store)

We also have some cool BCR PS3 and PSP themes available around launch. They’re made by the same talented designer who created the award winning Lost Planet theme, Shawn Baxter and optimized by your very own theme expert Noel Silvia. Watch out for them.

Talk to you next week!

Are they boss battles?

I never played bionic commando.

    I don;t know how many hours it takes to complet the game, but trust me, it\’s pretty long. And with multiplayer and challenge modes, the gameplay hours are limitless.

    Yes, there are boss battles!

Hey John, when will you be able to drop the news about a possible ‘surprise’ with the PSN edition of BC:R? Will you catch the PS SF fans off guard? I read this a long time ago from one of your initial posts about BC:R through the PS Blog. Please let us know already (hey, it’s almost launch for BC:R)! ;)

OK I see that IT says sometime in the future we will have trophies but can you please go into that further?

Reason being is that I actually plan on buying the game when it does support trophies(something about see the actual trophy pop up as I get them is awesome for me), so seeing if it’ll be 1 month after or even sooner would be cool.
