We Rather Liked Bionic Commando, But Apparently We Were In The Minority.

Inafune was discussing the troubled development of the Swedish companies (not that) terrible Bionic Commando reboot for PS3 — a game that eventually helped shutter the company entirely.

The game wasn't helped by its bizarre plot, which culminated in a cliff-hanger ending revealing Rad Spencer's Bionic Arm was made up partially of his dead wife. Yeah.

"I don't even know what happened there," Inafune revealed. According to Keiji, Bionic Commando was rife with development issues. Inafune explained that the strenuous relationship could be characterised by a single phrase that represented the attitude between the two companies: "Whatever, do what you want, I don't care."

Inafune concluded that Grin should have been much more flexible. "If you don't do that, everything will become messed up from the middle. And that's the most important part. Not the beginning, but in the middle and finishing the game."

Needless to say, Bionic Commando probably won't be getting another reboot anytime soon.
