Strider Returns in 2014

The long dormant platforming Ninja series, Strider, will finally slice back into action.

San Diego, Calif. – July 19, 2013 - Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that the ultimate ninja, Strider Hiryu, will return in Strider™,a brand new title in development for Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360®games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 and PC. An intense side-scrolling action platformer, Strider’s action begins in the expansive metropolis of Kazakh City, a mix of ornate Russian architecture and hard-edged futuristic high-rise buildings with sprawling energy cables and pipework. Players freely explore the city and beyond, gaining new abilities and items which in turn open access to a truly massive and expansive interconnected game world. 
The game will play similar to the classic series but on for the "HD Generation" but alas the Wii U seems to be left out again. It's funny, we recently got Earthbound back and now Capcom is showing us Strider. What's old is new again, I suppose. Now if only Capcom can do something about Mega Man. 


Shut up and take my money! I had doubts since Double Helix doesn't have the best track record, but the trailer sold me. I'm stoked they are keeping it 2D as well.
