Cubed3.com have been speaking to Ex-Capcom veteran videogame designer, Kouichi Yotsui, aka "Isuke", about his work to date, which includes the recent Moon Diver, and his future plans which include a 3DS game. In the interview he was asked about the Capcom classic, Strider:
AR: Does Capcom still hold the rights to Strider, or could you use the name in the future?
Yotsui-san: I was an employee of Capcom when I worked on Strider, therefore, I do not have any rights to use the name directly for any possible future project(s).
AR: You worked with Mitchell Corporation on Cannon Dancer / Osman. Was this your ‘Strider 2’? Will you work with Mitchell again on another similar game?
Yotsui-san: Personally, I consider Cannon Dancer to be my Strider 2. However, the real Strider 2 was released in the coin-op arcades, with the legal rights for it being held solely by Capcom. If Mitchell needs me for a new Cannon Dancer / Osman, then I am now available!
