Capcom’s Strider series has been mostly dormant for the past decade or so. This hack-and-slash platforming series, starring Strider Hiryu, began back in 1989 in arcades. Strider was then ported to several consoles, including the NES, Sega Genesis, and, most recently, the Wii Virtual Console. A U.S. Gold-produced sequel was released in 1989, but Capcom’s true sequel was released much later in 1999. Other than some cameos and playable appearances in crossover games such as the Marvel vs. Capcom games, the Strider series has mostly remained dormant.
Finally, at Comic-Con 2013, Capcom and developer Double Helix Games announced a brand-new Strider game for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, which was released in February 2014. Considered a retelling of the original game, the new Strider title features plenty of fast-paced action that fans will certainly appreciate.
