Capcom today announced that Strider will officially release across North America on February 18th as a $14.99 digital download title on PSN (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3), with the XBLA (Xbox One, Xbox 360) and PC (Steam) versions out on February 19th.
Two all-new Challenge Modes were also announced. First up, Beacon Run offers a “speed run” race style mode challenging players to hit consecutive checkpoints while slicing through enemies, in the shortest amount of time. Secondly, Survival Mode will test player’s combat skills with a variety of different load outs while waves of progressively difficult enemies converge on Strider Hiryu.
Global online leaderboards will track both Challenge Modes as well as the Story Mode.
Here’s a new gallery of screenshots that were released to highlight these two new modes.
