VIDEO: Capcom's Master Assassin "Strider" Returns

Furious, frenetic action featuring Strider Hiryu, his signature sword Cypher, and a very angry Russian cyber-army

EDIT: Now you can check out the trailer!

 

It looks like Capcom heard my wish: today, the company announced that Strider Hiryu is back. No longer just a guest star in the Marvel vs. Capcom games, Strider Hiryu will be fighting the forces of evil on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in early 2014.

 

Strider looks pretty solid, with clean-lined, sleek visuals that go more for style than "standard HD realism." The Soviet-inspired cyberpunk metropolis of Kazakh City will be the battleground for fans of ruthless old-school arcade action.
