Capcom’s upcoming remake of the grapply NES shooter Bionic Commando should be released in May.

That’s according to a Capcom representative who spoke to videogaming247 in the publisher’s flashy hotel suite in San Francisco today.

Said representative added that it should launch on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and PC at the same time. We can but hope.

The game’s quite close to completion then, obviously, and is looking very smart. Some bits are still being worked on – we weren’t allowed to see the hacking sections, for example – but the general 2D-with-3D-graphics gameplay of swinging around shooting people was intuitive and gratifying.

We particularly like the way that the enemies flop to their knees ragdoll-like and then tumble off the near side of 2D platforms and off the screen when they’re shot. More of this please, developer-folk.
