Bionic Commando dated for Europe

Late May, ahead of Japan. Woot.

UPDATE: Bionic Commando will be released across Europe for PS3 and Xbox 360 on 22nd May, Capcom has just announced.

The PC version will be out "in the following months", according to the last thing we were told about it.

ORIGINAL STORY: Bionic Commando will be released for Japan on 25th June, according to Dengeki (thanks Kotaku), but the latest Western guidance is still "May".

The GRIN-developed third-person action game builds on the legacy of the NES original, allowing you to cross huge play areas using your bionic arm grappling hook wotsit as you take down classic Capcom-style bosses among other henchmen.

If you want to get a better sense of it in the meantime, of course, you can always check out Bionic Commando Rearmed, which remakes the 2D original in classy style and even includes a hidden Eurogamer Challenge Room, which none of us can bloody well complete.

Look out for more impressions of the new Bionic Commando soon, but feel free to check in with some of last year's if you're impatient.
