Strider Out This Month; Screenshots Show Off New Costumes


Capcom have announced a release date for the new Strider game being developed in collaboration with Double Helix.


Strider will be available in North America on February 18th for $14.99 on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions will be available on February 19th. Meanwhile, Europe will get the game on February 19th on all platforms for €14.99/£11.99.


Capcom also announced two new Challenge Modes for the game today. “Beacon Run” is a race-style mode that challenges you to hit consecutive checkpoints while taking enemies down in as short a time as possible. Meanwhile, “Survival Mode” is a test of combat skills with different loadouts as waves of progressively difficult enemies attack.


Both modes will have global leaderboards. Additionally, Capcom say you can unlock new costumes in the game by “uncovering the vestiges of Striders fallen in battle against Grand Master Meio’s evil empire”. You can view some of these below.
