A new Strider is comng to the PS3. Xbox 360, PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Capcom has revealed.

The game is developed by Double Helix, the developer of Silent Hill: Homecoming and Killer Instinct, the revival of the Rare fighting game on its way to Xbox One. Also involved in the development of the game are the original Strider creative leads, which should hopefully mean that it’s a faithful Strider experience.

Series protagonist Hiryu is able to use a fire shrouded version of his sword, the Cypher, which can not only only set enemies on fire, but also deflect bullets back and unlock certain doors. Metroidvania elements have been incorporated, giving you the opportunity to revisit areas with newly acquired abilities to gain access to previously inaccessible areas.

The game is due early next year.
