Bishop's knife trick is an Aliens: Infestation minigame

In news that finally cements my unrivaled excitement for Aliens: Infestation, it's been revealed that the famous "knife trick" scene from Aliens will be in WayForward's DS adventure as a playable minigame. 

The news comes via Official Nintendo Magazine, along with a small image of a bleeding hand.

In Aliens, the android Bishop is able to utilize his synthetic precision to rapidly stab a knife between his fingers and hit only the table underneath. Players will be able to recreate this iconic moment from the movie, presumably by jamming the stylus between digital fingers. 

Is that not one of the best movie-to-game transitions ever? I think that's pretty amazing.
