Bionic Commando Rearmed (バイオニック コマンドー マスターD復活計画, Bionic Commando: Master D Resurrection Project in Japan) is an enhanced remake of the 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System version of Bionic Commando. It was developed by GRIN and published by Capcom for Windows, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade and was released on August 13, 2008. The remake serves as a prelude to the 2009 video game Bionic Commando. A sequel, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, is currently in development.

Rearmed follows Nathan "Rad" Spencer, a commando with a Bionic left arm that can extend and be used as a weapon, or to swing from various objects. Spencer is sent to destroy a weapon known as the "Albatros" [sic] project under construction by the "Badds". It was developed using GRIN's Diesel engine and features in-game art by Shinkiro. During development former Capcom employees who worked on the Nintendo version of Bionic Commando served as consultants to the developers.

Rearmed was well received, averaging 86% across all three platforms at gaming aggregator Metacritic. Reviewers praised the fact that the game was true to the original, but lauded the updated gameplay and graphics. It was described by IGN as "the best downloadable game to date on XBLA and PSN." 1UP stated Rearmed "should go down in history as one of gaming's best deals."
