Capcom today confirmed that the ultimate ninja, Strider Hiryu, will return in Strider, a brand new title in development for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 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.
Strider is being developed by Double Helix Games in conjunction with Capcom and is scheduled for digital release in early 2014.
