Bionic Commando tells the story of Nathan Spencer, a seasoned government operative betrayed and falsely imprisoned. But when terrorists detonate an "experimental device" over Ascension City, who do the government turn to save the day but poor old Nathan Spencer? Probably because of his gigantic metal grappling hook arm.

Bionic Commando will be released on PC "shortly after" the console versions, with Capcom promising further details in the upcoming months.
