Strider Reboot Confirmed

It’s no secret that the team here at Retro Domination are huge fans of the Strider series and its main character, the assassin known as Hiryu. So whilst it may not technically be retro related news, we were all extremely giddy to see that over the weekend Capcom announced that a brand new Strider game will be making its way to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC via digital download in early 2014.

While details are still a little scarce at the moment, it has been confirmed that this is a brand new game in the series and not a remake of the original game and is being worked on by Double Helix Games, the same studio behind the recently announced Killer Instinct reboot for the Xbox One! Stay tuned for information in regards to a release date, pricing, etc once it becomes available, but in the meantime check out the announcement & game play trailers along with some gorgeous looking screenshots!

Finally, we’d like to say that it’s about damn time Capcom! Now where is our new Mega Man game at?
