The new Strider game from Capcom and Double Helix has been looking pretty good. With every screenshot and trailer sent out, I've been become more and more excited with getting my hands on it. And now, it looks we'll do just that sooner than we think. Capcom USA's Greg Moore just revealed on the Capcom-Unity blog that Strider will be released for the PS3/PS4 on February 18, and along with the PC and Xbox 360/Xbox One versions the following day. Priced at $14.99, it will be distributed on PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam.

In addition to this news, we also saw the reveal of additional content that will come with the game. Along with the Story mode, which takes Strider through an enemy facility in 'Metroidvania' style, we'll also get a speed-run mode called Beacon Mode, and a Survival Mode where the ninja must battle waves of enemies without perishing.

But wait, there's more. Strider will also come with a slew of customization options, such as color edit mode, and also twelve additional costumes to outfit the titular character with. One of which is the white costume of Strider Hien from Strider 2.

This is all a pleasant surprise, much sooner than I expected. It's been a long time since Strider has had a game of his own, and he definitely looks as fast and fierce as ever. For more info and images of Strider swing by Capcom-Unity, and check back in the coming weeks with Destructoid for our review.

Very Quick Tips: Strider

Review: Strider

I was very skeptical when the Strider franchise was handed over to Double Helix. This was before we found out that Killer Instinct was actually a decent game, when the studio was allowed to spread its wings with som...more

Do you prefer Strider's retro tracks or the new remixes?

The original "Raid" has not been topped, but both "Siberian Tunnel" tracks make my ears sing. The Strider reboot is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC early 2014 for $15. C'mon, Double Helix. Don't goof this up or it's back to licensed Battleship games and Killer Instinct DLC forever.more

Strider looks nice when it's being played by a pro

Even without a deep-rooted sense of nostalgia for Strider -- okay, I do love the ridiculous Blue Dragon and always will for obvious reasons -- the remake in development at Double Helix is enough to bring about feelings of un...more

Getting up to speed with Strider

Strider was…well, it wasn't a big deal at Tokyo Game Show 2013. It could be found at a couple of places on the show floor, but you had to look for it. But I didn't need any fanfare or huge signage to want to try it out...more

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii. more
