It’s been a long time since we got a new Strider game. And in typical Capcom fashion, they’re bringing him back with the aid of a western studio, Double Helix.
I’m cautiously optimistic despite hearing that it is a 2.5-D side scrolling Metroidvania styled game. I’m hoping for the best but Double Helix’s track record doesn’t scream quality. Who knows? They could pull it (and Killer Instinct) off and become a top grade developer. We all have to start somewhere.
This trailer and gameplay demonstration are certainly solid beginnings:
Strider is expected to debut in early 2014 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and Wii U.
