Capcom has confirmed that the Double Helix Games developed reboot of Strider will see the light of day via digital download on February 18th via PSN (PS3 and PS4), and on February 19th via XBLA (Xbox 360 and Xbox One) and Steam (PC).
Also revealed today are two new challenge modes that join the game’s core story mode. Firstly ‘Beacon Run’, a speed run mode that challenges players to hit consecutive checkpoints whilst slicing your way through enemies in the shortest time possible. This will be joined by ‘Survival Mode’, testing players combat skills with a variety of weapon and skill load outs whist being assaulted by waves of progressively more difficult and diverse enemies. Global leaderboards will record the results of of all three modes, allowing players to compare results and challenge friends from around the world.
Players can unlock new sets of costumes by uncovering the vestiges of Striders fallen in battle against Grand Master Meio’s evil empire. Unlock all costumes to have access to a full array of customization options, allowing players to create their own unique and playable Strider character.
