New Strider Game Coming

Last Updated: July 10, 2014


Capcom has decided to revive one of its old IPs, as a new Strider game was announced today at San Diego Comic-Con. Strider is being developed by Double Helix, the same company working on the new Killer Instinct, and it will be released in early 2014 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC (Steam).

Strider will be a 2.5D sidescroller, with a nonlinear structure similar to that of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. According to the official game description, players will control young assassin Hiryu in his mission to destroy Grand Master Meio. Capcom added that it will include “high-speed Cypher combat,” new Cypher abilities, and robot allies.

More details will be revealed as development progresses.
