Simon Viklund, creative director at GRIN -- the studio behind both Bionic Commando Rearmed
and the upcoming next-gen remake
-- has announced on the team's blog that Bionic Commando Rearmed
is "approaching completion." According to Viklund, the game will enter the approval process (which presumably includes Microsoft certification) "within weeks." The project is currently undergoing the final steps of development, with GRIN adding the last layer of polish and making sure the game performs properly. No other details are given regarding the game, though Viklund does note that GRIN has a "passion for the old gaming heritage" and that the team is already considering future projects centered around older games. Dare we hope for an HD remake of Mega Man
? Ghouls and Ghosts

How about Metal Gear? Can we get some Metal Gear? No?
Okay, how about RC Pro-Am then?

I've never played the original but the trailer looks really good.
Probably my next purchase.

I loved the original, but:
1) I just (finally) got Mass Effect.
2) New Halo Maps next Tuesday.
3) GTA IV in less than 3 weeks.
4) A good chance of some awesome Rock Band DLC one of these weeks.
I could go on.

Damn, it sounds like their timing is horrible. I have been dying to get a hold of this game, but if it's not released before GTA4 it's going to be a *long* time before I get around to purchasing it.

actually there is a remade Megaman on PSP: Megaman Powered Up. it's basically megaman 1 with cutesy new 3d graphics. still the same game. that'd be cool for an xbla version in my opinion

And, while you're at it, there's a Ghouls and Ghosts (Ghosts and Goblins? I forget) remake for PSP as well. It's pretty damn good (though still really, really hard).
