It was announced at Capcom's panel at Comic-Con. It is for both current gen & Next Gen:
Never had a familiarity with Strider outside of Marvel Vs Capcom, but this game could be neat.
Update: Capcom has a gameplay video:
Much like with KI I'm not going to get excited for this, but I'll try to stay cautiously optimistic. It's just that Double Helix has such a bad track record. But if this and KI turn out good, I'll eat every bad word / thought I've had about them, buy the games (assuming I ever get an Xbox One in the case of KI), and be excited for their next projects.
This seems like it will be in a Metroidvania style which I would be totally for. Not enough games like that. Double Helix seems to be getting a lot of the reboots of old franchises and even though their track record is poor, hopefully they can turn it around with Strider and Killer Instinct.
Hey you know what people give Double Helix shit but I really liked the Silent Hill game they did. It had its issues like inexplicably not having inversion options for the camera but I enjoyed my few runs of that game that I did. This looks interesting enough I'll give it a fair shake at impressing me.
Am i the only one that feels like this game looks like its on a strict budget. This honestly looks like PSN/XBLA title.
I heard it was a boxed retail release. It's coming out on the same day as COD.
This is a mistake on their part. Better to release in a less frantic climate. If the game has a lot of powerups, bosses, enemy and stage variety i think it could be solid but something tells me its going to get redundant, but we'll c, friend.
Gameplay actually looks quite faithful to the original.
aside from the climbing i'm afraid not much, i'm a big fan of the original so i'm probably a bit picky but the seven minute gameplay video didn't quite sold me.
this is Osman/Cannon Dancer, an obscure spiritual sequel for Strider done by the same developers in the arcades
even with the differences, this is actually more faithful to the original than what Double Helix is doing.
Bout friggin time!
But DH hasn't got the best track record... we'll see how this goes.
I agree but Killer Instinct and this look fantastic. The same could be said about Spark Unlimited (legendary is not amazing but had some interesting designs) although Ninja Gaiden Yaiba Z looks great too.
I think Comcept and Team Ninja are doing most of the work for NG Yaiba Z because this is the first I've heard of Spark also working on it. I could be wrong but I doubt it. Also, Spark is working on Lost Planet 3. People have been saying that games turning out solid.
