Man, I really hope this petition takes off. I’ve done my part, we will see what happens from here. For now though, it’s off to bed. I will catch you guys in a few hours. Have a great morning…and spread the word!
I think we all know that a Bionic Commando game is in the works for the PS3, 360, and PC. When I heard the news, I was extremely saddened to hear that the title wasn’t slated for the Wii. I have been a huge fan of Bionic Commando since I played the original in the arcades. My favorite by far is the NES version of Bionic Commando. The GBC semi-sequel is an excellent game as well. The problem is, I felt that Capcom never really explored the Bionic Commando franchise. There are so many different gameplay elements that can be tied to the series, I see the franchise as having near-limitless potential. This brings me back to the announcement of the new Bionic Commando. While I am extremely happy that Capcom is revisiting the series, I can’t help feeling let down that they ignored the Wii on this pass.
Or at least, that’s how it seemed at first. While there seemed to be no hope for a Wii version, we found out that it was quite the opposite. A Capcom employee came out and said; in a much more eloquent way, that if we wanted to see Bionic Commando on the Wii, we would have to voice that opinion. Hearing that was like music to my ears. It gives us some indication that Capcom is at least entertaining the idea. They obviously aren’t sure if there is a crowd on the Wii that would want this game. That’s why we need to speak up, just as they challenged us to do.
As promised, I have put together a petition to bring Bionic Command to the Wii. My statement may not be the most well-written piece out there, but I think it drives the point home. The long and short of it is that we want Bionic Commando on the Wii!
There are a few things that are very important when trying to make this petition a success. It simply cannot be done without your help. PLEASE take the time to read the suggestions below.

If you have any friends that are hoping to get Bionic Commando on the Wii, send them this link. They will need to sign if there is any hope of this happening. From there out, those friends have to send the link to even more people…and so on…and so on…
- VERY IMPORTANT! Send this link to all of your favorite websites. The best way to get this petition more into the eye of the gaming community is by having it posted on various sites.

- Promote this petition in any way possible! Post about it on someone’s Facebook wall. Make a MySpace bulletin about it. Make a YouTube video calling people out to sign! Any way you can think of to spread this petition is worthwhile.
Will this petition actually convince Capcom? I honestly have no idea. That will all depend on how many signatures we get. Hundreds of names aren’t going to count. We need thousands…tens of thousands. That shouldn’t be a difficult goal to reach when you consider how many gamers there are out there. Please, I am asking you to take 5 minutes out of your day to sign this petition, and do your best to promote it. Don’t take the attitude that someone else will spread this petition. Take the job upon yourself. I’ll be promoting it as much as I can, but I absolutely cannot do this without you. GoNintendo readers have more than proven themselves in the past. This is one of those instances where I really need you to come through. We can do this, and it can start with you.
