'Bionic Commando' Rearms With 130,000


Posted August 25, 2008 - By jmanalang

Never underestimate the power of retro gaming. Capcom's digital revival of the classic NES swing-and-shoot title, Bionic Commando: Rearmed, has sold over 130,000 downloads during its fist week.

As game producer Ben Judd stated on the game's official site, Rearmed's numbers may not look as impressive when compared to retail software titles, but it's a "frigging JUGGERNAUT!" to digital platforms. "Basically, we have set a standard in digital gaming," said Judd in the game's blog. "The bar has been raised and you have let developers around the world know that if they invest the time, money, and heart into making (and remaking) some great games, you will support that initiative."

With Bionic Commando's welcome success, will Mega Man 9 receive the same praise? Definitely.

Here are the a behind-the-scenes look in the making of Bionic Commando: Rearmed:
