Strider Release Date And Pricing Confirmed

By Andrew Ogley, 2 years ago
Even though we were recently able to bring you the latest trailer, we still didn't have a confirmed release date for the upcoming platform based, hack and slash title, Strider.

Happily we can now rectify that as Capcom has confirmed both the release date and the pricing for the title, and the good news is that the date is not too far away so fans will not have to wait too long to get their twitchy fingers and thumbs on the action packed title.

Capcom has also released some details about the game modes that will feature in the title. Along with the story mode, there are two challenge modes: Beacon Run and Survival. Just like the story mode, these scores for these challenges will be available on leaderboards for all to see, so those susceptible to peer pressure and over competitiveness beware.

Beacon Run will feature a "speed-run" race that promises players a white-knuckled experience, challenging them to slice through enemies and hit various checkpoints, all within the shortest amount of time. Survival mode focuses on combat skills, challenging the player to withstand the onslaught of increasingly difficult and diverse enemies. To aid the player in battle, a variety of different item and ability load outs will be available.
