Will Bionic Commando hit the Virtual Console? Capcom says no.

Over at IGN, there's an interesting interview with Capcom's Ben Judd on the upcoming PSN/XBLA remake of the original Bionic Commando, Bionic Commando Rearmed. Sure, this might not be too exciting for Wii owners, but there is a bit of interesting information about the possibility of the NES Bionic Commando hitting the Virtual Console. When asked about the possibility of Bionic Commando coming to the Virtual Console, Mr. Judd replied "That also couldn't happen".

Mr. Judd didn't give much insight on exactly why Bionic Commando on the VC "couldn't happen", but over at Capcom's official forums, Capcom's Christian Svensson shed a bit more light onto the situation, stating that it's not a Capcom issue, but a Nintendo issue. Apparently at some point, both Ben Judd and Christian Svensson tried to make Bionic Commando on the VC happen, but to no avail, it seems. Now this only leaves us to speculate as to why Nintendo apparently scrapped Capcom's plans to put Bionic Commando on the VC. Whatever the case, this is REALLY disappointing, as Bionic Commando for the NES is basically one of my favorite games of all time, right up there with Earthbound. Let's all just hope that whatever it is that's keeping Bionic Commando for the VC shelved gets resolved sometime soon!
