Capcom's upcoming sci-fi ninja platforming title Strider will soon be seeing a digital launch on February 18th for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, with Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Steam welcoming the game the day after. Taking the reigns on the reboot of classic ninja series is Double Helix, the studio behind the recent return of Killer Instinct.

Today's news also brings an announcement of two challenge modes in addition to the main story mode: Beacon Run is a “speed run” race style mode that challenges players in a slice-and-dice speedrun, and Survival mixes up harder and harder waves of enemies to defeat. Both modes feature leaderboards, as does the main campaign.

"Whether competing against the world’s best speed runners or going head-to-head against friends, players can track their stats via the Strider leaderboards, which introduce an addictive layer of depth and replayability.

Furthermore, players can unlock new sets of costumes by uncovering the vestiges of Striders fallen in battle against Grand Master Meio’s evil empire. Unlock all costumes to have access to a full array of customization options, allowing players to create their own unique and playable Strider character."

i wonder if its going to be as hard as the original classic arcade version was because that game was hard. I like to think of myself as someone who was good at arcade games back in the day but even with 3 lives i struggled to get past this guy


It was a really cool game tho with the panther thing and the bird thing and the sling sling sling swish of the blade

I don't think I ever managed to kill the last boss of Stryder, at least I *think* it was the last boss. That space station level where the gravity would flip and the boss fight you were running around a big ring, and the boss was floating in the middle.

Last time I bought a remake of a classic game though I got burned. Picked up the Flashback remake and it was awful :(

This game looks like its based on the NES version of Strider, not the arcade game. The NES version was awesome, more adventure-y and kinda like metroid.

I'm surprised they don't include the original as a pre-order bonus, seems like a complete no-brainer.
