Capcom’s ‘Strider’ redux to release next week!

by Phil Wheat


Capcomhave announced that Strider will officially release across North America on February 18th as a digital download title on PSN, with the XBLA and PC versions out on February 19th. The game is set to feature two all-new Challenge Modes as well as the core Story Mode, and a slew of extras and bonus content that are sure to please fans of all ages.

Strider features the same franchise hallmarks of fluid, lightning quick side scrolling combat and free-flowing traversal through the expansive interconnected metropolis of Kazakh City. Perform breakneck acrobatic jumps and mid-air flips while slicing through Strider’s varied enemy types with Hiryu’s indestructible ‘Cypher’, a plasma charged weapon that can take on a number of properties. Alternatively, use the climb sickle to gain the high ground, and hit enemies with a surprise Kunai attack or call on support companions for some extra muscle when the going gets tough. Strider is developed by Double Helix Games, in conjunction with Capcom.

Challenge Modes include: Beacon Run, which offers a “speed run” race style mode that gives players a white-knuckled experience, challenging them to hit consecutive checkpoints while slicing through enemies, in the shortest amount of time; and Survival Mode, which tests player’s combat skills with a variety of different item and ability load outs, as waves of progressively difficult and diverse enemies converge on Strider Hiryu.

Furthermore, players can unlock new sets of costumes by uncovering the vestiges of Striders fallen in battle against Grand Master Meio’s evil empire. Unlock all costumes to have access to a full array of customization options, allowing players to create their own unique and playable Strider character.
