Strider Release Date and New Modes Confirmed

on February 5, 2014 2:14 PM

Strider will be the first standalone title for the character, Strider Hiryu, since 1990’s Strider 2. Much of the familiar gameplay associated with the character will be brought back in the upcoming title along with some interesting new modes:

Beacon Run

  • This is a speed run-style racing mode that challenges players to get from checkpoint to checkpoint in record time, slashing their way through enemies all the while.

Survival Mode

  • Test your combat skills and earn that Special-A Class ranking Hiryu’s known for by taking on progressively difficult waves of enemies while equipped with different ability loadouts.

Strider is being developed by Double Helix Games alongside Capcom’s Osaka Studio and will be published by Capcom for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 18th & 19th.
