Since the days of the original Nintendo and during the heights of the arcade, Capcom has been churning out some classic titles. One of those classics was Strider. Strider tells the story of Hiryu, the youngest ever ‘Super A’ ranked agent of an elite corps known as the Striders. Strider Hiryu receives orders to assassinate Grandmaster Meio, supreme dictator of Earth, who has plunged humanity into a dystopian dark age.
After two sequels, the Strider franchise was put to rest, and the only other place you could find the Ninja was in the Marvel vs. Capcom series. Capcom has just now announced a new Strider title coming for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The game is being developed by Double Helix in collaboration with the original Strider developers from Capcom’s Osaka offices. The game will feature “an ultra-responsive control system, with incredibly satisfying combat options in every traversal context—standing, running, wall climbing, hanging, aerial and more.”
Here is the official press release.
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.
Strider will also offer “the massive interconnected world of Kazakh City which players can explore in any direction they choose. The traditional level structure has been replaced with a retraceable world and a deep ability upgrade system which enables Hiryu to build more power and abilities to penetrate ever deeper into the dystopian adventure.”
