Strider Set For February 26 On Xbox 360

By Spencer . January 22, 2014 . 11:42pm

strde Xbox 360 gamers, at least in Japan, will be able to get Strider on February 26. The game will cost 2,000 yen ($19). While Capcom has not announced a North American release date, it’s rare for an Xbox Live Arcade game to get a release in Japan before the rest of the world. Usually, XBLA titles have a worldwide launch.


Strider will also be released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on February 22. The PlayStation 3 version will be available in stores too and bundled with a code to download Strider 1&2 as a PsOne Classic.


Strider is scheduled to come out on Xbox One and PC sometime in 2014 too.

    I’ll be waiting patiently for the PC version. I liked Stider 1&2 (I’m a sucker for side-scrolling actions), and I’m quite excited to play this :D

      Given how they’re trying to use it to promote 360 sales in Japan, putting it out there first before any other region or console, good luck with that…

        Huh? What do you mean by “good luck”? The PC version is already confirmed, and I did say I’ll wait. I’m interested but it’s not like I’m dying to play this.

    Oh cool, didn’t know it would come with Strider 1 and 2. I was really hoping those would be released as classics on PSN. Hopefully this will extend to the US.

    Classic strider, I’m all for it!

    So according to the article, the 360 version being offered is only the new game, while the PS3 retail version will include the original strider 1&2 as DLs? So will it be similar for the 360 or will the original 1&2 be available on PSN/XBL. Will the new version just be the new version if its DL only?

    This is really all over the place – Just what is Crapcom smoking?

      Physical copy of Strider (PS3) has PSOne Classics Strider 1&2
      As PSOne Classics, I don’t think they’d get released on 360. Is this what you’re trying to say?
      The 360 Strider on XBLA will just be the new game.

        Its all still an uneven mess

          Playstation version gets the games previously released on Playstation. Xbox doesn’t because why would it.
