Capcom has announced that Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 will be released across Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network during the first week of February.

Xbox LIVE Arcade, which shares release dates across all regions, will get the game on Wednesday February 2. PS3 owners in the US will get it on Tuesday February 1, but Europeans will likely have to wait until the Wednesday as well. The game will cost 1200 MS Points (£10.28/€14.40/$15.00) on Xbox LIVE Arcade and has a confirmed US PSN price of $14.99.

Rearmed 2 is the sequel to the 9/10 original, and VideoGamer's recent hands-on preview suggests the sequel will finally give newcomers the opportunity to get to grips with series' tough-as-nails difficulty levels.
