Strider is set to launch on the Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 and on Xbox One from tomorrow, marking the return of Cypher sword-swiping, star-jumping, kunai-chucking ninja badass, Strider Hiryu.
Sporting the old Strider franchise hallmarks of "fluid, lightning quick side scrolling combat and free-flowing traversal through the expansive interconnected metropolis of Kazakh City," Double Helix's new Strider features plenty of platforming action, including several game modes and customisation options.
As well as the campaign, there's the Beacon Run 'speed run'-style race mode in which you have to hit checkpoints, and Survival Mode that puts you to the test against increasingly tough waves of enemies. Check out the Strider launch trailer below. The game is out tomorrow for $14.99.£11.99/€14.99.
