According to information published in a recent issue of Famitsu magazine (translated by IGN), Capcom plans to release a 3D update of Bionic Commando on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in Japan this Spring. That would be the Famicom classic featuring Hitler, mind you, not the forthcoming corn-rowed franchise revival bearing the same name and the same multifaceted appendage.

Initial details suggest that "Bionic Commando: Master D Revival Plan" will feature 3D graphics, a simultaneous two-player mode and an undoubtedly tenuous "connection" to the new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game. IGN also presumes that the gameplay will remain of the side-scrolling variety, making Master D Revival Plan akin to Capcom's criminally unappreciated PSP Mega Man remake, Mega Man: Powered Up.

We've contacted Capcom's US office to learn more.
