At the SDCC World of Capcom panel today, Killer Instinct developer Double Helix announced that it has been developing a Strider game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game looks to be a 2.5 D side-scrolling action-adventure game. The team at Double Helix is working closely with the Capcom team at Osaka in order to finish the game.
The new Strider will feature the same classic gameplay that fans remember from the Strider arcade and PSOne titles, married with a Metroidvania-style exploration system.
"New to the franchise is the massive interconnected world of Kazakh City which players can explore in any direction they choose. The traditional level structure has been replaced with a retraceable world and a deep ability upgrade system which enables Hiryu to build more power and abilities to penetrate ever deeper into the dystopian adventure," wrote Double Helix studio head Patrick Gilmore in the studio's announcement.
Strider is coming in early 2014 to PlayStation3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Steam.
