Capcom announces Strider

Ninja Strider Hiryu is back as Capcom announced the new title at ComicCon today. Developed by Double Helix and the original designers, the side-scrolling platformer will be out in early 2014 as a digital title for PC, PS3, 360, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Details, screens, trailer and 60fps gameplay inside.



THE ORIGINAL ASSASSIN RETURNS WITH THE REVEAL OF STRIDER®
The Ultimate Ninja Hero Comes to Current and Next Gen Platforms Early 2014


San Diego, Calif. – July 18, 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 system 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.

Remaining true to its roots, Strider features the same franchise hallmarks of fluid, lightning quick combat and ground-breaking free-flowing traversal that inspired many of today’s third person action titles. Strider further builds upon this pedigree by endowing the player with a vastly expanded arsenal of moves and weapons to acquire and use, while slicing their way through a massive, interconnected and rich game world.

The year is Meio: 048, on an alternate dystopian future of Earth. The whole planet suffers under the oppressive, iron-fisted rule of the mysterious and omnipotent Grand Master Meio. An expert in sabotage and assassination, Hiryu is the youngest ever recruit to attain a Special A-Class in the hellish Strider training program, and is the only man capable of achieving the mission to eliminate Grand Master Meio.

Perform breakneck acrobatic jumps and mid-air flips while slicing through enemies 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 them with a surprise Kunai attack, or call on support allies for some extra muscle when the going gets tough.

From cybernetic soldiers to immense bio-mechanical creatures, Strider’s varied enemy types guarantee unique and engaging combat challenges that will see players quickly utilizing their various weapons, items and skills to gain the upper hand. The addition of plasma cypher variations and ranged weapons, such as the Kunai, provide further depth to combat.

Strider is being developed by Double Helix Games in conjunction with Capcom and is scheduled for digital release in early 2014.

Dissapointed.
They should have gone with 3D action style instead.

That's because Moon Diver is made from the same director of the original Strider.

Shame you won't play it because it's "2D". That's like saying, "I won't get in that 2-door Bentley, because I only ride in 4-door cars!"

I dont like 2D games thats the end of it. And your comparison is too over the top and make no sense so dont even try it.

I am not missing anything if i dont enjoy 2D games. Some people dont like certain genres so they avoid it plain simple, if thats hard to understand then you should focus on other stuff.

2D games were more recently a dying breed. Although admittedly have come back to an extent
If you want a 3D game play Ninja Gaiden.
This looks sweet

As I said, "shame"... meaning, I feel a bit of remorse... only a bit, because it's your loss.

But judging by your other responses, I can't help but wonder if anything makes you happy, other than coming into a thread about a (what looks to be cool) 2.5D game and trolling.

Shame.

As for Strider. I loved that game when I was a kid. Day 1!

Yeah there are games out there that have made me happy and games coming out i look forward.
Ever since this genre started i wanted a 3D Strider action game, and when this came out and i saw it was 2D i got dissapointed thats all there is to it.
I also got better stuff to do than "troll" (whatever that even means) on forums.

Damn! This looks awesome.

I'm begging Nintendo to do the next Metroid in 2.5D. Considering how popular the New Super Mario games are I'm shocked they haven't made another Metroid side-scroller. I would actually buy a Wii U for that.

This! I would totally buy a WiiU for a 2.5D Metroid. I bought a Wii for Donkey Kong Country and Metroid Other M (aww... Other M... such a shame).
