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

But will that sense of speed remain constant?

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 uneasiness. It’s tough to know how these things are going to pan out and to that end, it’s easy to assume the worst these days.

We just heard that the game will be playable at New York Comic Con, and now Capcom’s got some fresh screenshots and a trailer. The price has also been locked down at $14.99.

To see this game botched would be such a disappointment and it stinks that the default reaction is to worry. But we’ve been burned enough in the past — it’s justified. I’m crossing my fingers for you, Strider. Please be worthy of that name.
