New Strider Game for PCs and Consoles?

NeoGAF has images with logos discovered on XBLA said to be from a new Strider game, a follow-up to Capcom's platformer that was released during the Bush administration (yes, the first one). They also point to data extracted from the Steam database saying a Strider achievement there indicates this unannounced game is coming to PCs as well, but that entry no longer contains any reference to the game, and the accompanying timestamp indicates it was edited overnight. Thanks Eurogamer.

There was always something enticing and unique about that game, and the NES version did a pretty poor job of capturing that, IMO.

Yeah, I played the nes version first and really enjoyed it. It was only when I saw the genesis (and later arcade roms, via mame) that I realized how little it appeared to have to do with the arcade version. (We never really had a killer arcade with the latest and greatest where I grew up.)

I used to play the original strider in arcades back in the day. There was always something enticing and unique about that game, and the NES version did a pretty poor job of capturing that, IMO. Another arcade favorite from that same time period was "Rolling Thunder".


Here's hoping that they do it justice! Strider could be an awesome IP if they do it right. There was a 2.5d version of strider that capcom made for the playstation one. It was pretty decent, but the arcade original was better.. and luckily was included with that version as well.

If they make it a 2.5d game like the bionic commando remakes, it could be a fun little romp. Here's hoping they didn't try to "freshen it up" by making it a third-person platformer.

And why not? Ninja Gaiden is one of the most difficult and rewarding series put on the modern consoles. They could do the same thing with Strider.

Ignoring NG3, I agree, that series did a good transition. Making a clone of it would be pointless, and would only invite the obvious comparisons. Also, with the original Strider being a game about scrambling through the levels, I'm afraid it'd end up more like Ninja Blade, which was basically a super flashy game made almost entirely of QuickTime events.
Also, I love 2.5d games. Good ones use the forced perspective to give you amazing landscapes (Sine Mora!).

I'd rather Capcom not drag Strider through the mud like they've done to all of their other franchises, but I guess there's no stopping them.

I played the hell out of the nes version, but it bore very little resemblance to the arcade and genesis versions...
