BC Rearmed PS3 has rumble support

With more surprises to come.

The PlayStation Network version of Bionic Commando: Rearmed will support Remote Play and rumble, producer Ben Judd has confirmed, with more surprises to come.

Judd, writing on the US PlayStation Blog, said Remote Play had been tricky to implement in Capcom's upcoming side-scrolling downloadable title.

"This one wasn't as easy [as DualShock 3 support] 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 two sticks (you'll know when you see it)," he explained.

"The classic 2D side-scrolling graphics really fit with the PSP and just make the PSN version all the more cooler."

Remote Play allows PS3 owners to play certain games and do multimedia things on the PSP remotely.

On the subject of rumble support, Judd said, "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."

Not content with all that, the Capcom man hinted at more treats for people who buy the PSN version of Bionic Commando: Rearmed, promising "one more very cool surprise for those of you who purchase the PSN version" but refusing to elaborate for now.

Elsewhere in the post - the first in a series running up to the game's launch - Judd discussed female chopper pilot Haley and the Hagle Breaker Assault Shotgun.

He also spoke about the game's Medals system. There are 12 to collect, apparently, so presumably it's analogous to the Xbox 360 version's 12 Xbox Live Arcade Achievements. There's no discussion of Trophy support, however.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed is a retooled version of the classic 2D NES platform-shooter, which is due out soon to pave the way for Capcom's upcoming 3D re-imagining of the game. It's also in development for 360 and PC.
