Strider Releasing On February 19th

Capcom has announced the release date for its upcoming sidescroller remake of Strider. The 2D action game will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC on February 19th for £11.99/$14.99.

Strider is a remake of the classic 16-bit game released in the 1990’s and features the Strider, Hiryu, as he slices his way through hordes of enemies. Developed by Double Helix, the game was a pleasant surprise when it was announced last year.

Capcom has also announced that two challenge modes are coming to the game. Beacon Run, a speed-run-style game-type whereby the player must hit checkpoints in the shortest time possible.

The 2nd of these Challenge Modes is the Survival Mode, in which players are given different load-outs and abilities and tasked with surviving waves of enemies.

Players will be able to unlock costumes for Hiryu as well as view leader-board rankings for story mode and the challenge modes. Strider is releasing on February 19th.
