Strider Rebirth: New Gameplay, Story Info
If you're old enough, you definitely remember Strider.
The rebirth of the side-scrolling slasher is on the way; it'll release for the PS3 and PS4 early next year, and it features brilliant high-definition visuals and the classic gameplay we all remember with such fondness.
To learn more about it, head on over to the PlayStation Blog to check out a hands-on post. There's also a great new gameplay video that brings a nostalgic tear to the eye. Once again, players will control Strider Hiryu, who has his indestructible Cypher weapon; his goal is to stop the evil Grand Master Meio, a ruling tyrant. The game is described as a "side-scrolling action platformer, set on one sprawling map." It's also compared to other RPG-influenced titles like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which makes me happy, 'cuz SotN is one of the greatest ever.
Learn more about the controls and basic gameplay, which sounds absolutely fantastic. And remember, Capcom is going for full 1080p visuals at a sharp 60 frames per second for the PS4 version!
