Capcom has revealed a bunch of new info on its upcoming downloadable Bionic Commando remake, Bionic Commando Rearmed. The game is coming to PSN, XBLA and PC, but the new update over on the official PlayStation Blog focuses on the features of the PS3 version.

“There will be Dualshock 3 support, because we all know that games that vibrate are better and besides… there really is no reason not to implement a feature that has become the industry standard,” said producer Ben Judd. “Also, Rearmed is one of the only PSN games to feature Remote Play support. This one wasn’t as easy to add and, matter of fact, there is one point where we had to “creatively” reprogram the controls to give players the illusion of using 2 sticks (you’ll know when you see it). The classic 2D side-scrolling graphics really fit with the PSP and just make the PSN version all the more cooler.”

Judd also noted: “Of course there is one more VERY cool surprise for those of you who purchase the PSN version… but that is another story for another time.”

A feature not detailed by Judd was Trophies, but Capcom’s John Diamonon was on hand to answer the inevitable question.

“It was too late into development to add trophy support at this time, however, Ben assures me that we’ll have this feature for BCR in the near future!” said Diamonon.

There’s still no confirmed release date for Bionic Commando Rearmed, but it looks to be shaping up very nicely.
