I'm trying to deduce who's making the game from the pics so far. I really want to say that it's gonna be a mix of 2D and 3D visuals. Sorta like how Contra Hard Corps. I have to say, Arc System Works would be natural for a Strider game.

hope its a remake of the NES version
I would actually be down for this. The NES version, while completely different than the original Strider, was pretty interesting and fun. Strider is a great arcade game for its time and it looked amazing on Genesis, but it was kind of shallow and short. It's kind of like playing any of the old classic beat-em-ups on XBLA. It's just not as fun when you have infinite continues or you are not playing in the arcade.

keep in mind that the boxart format and all indicates XBLA

this is probably a $15 HD remake or "Rearmed" new version of Strider

wich honestly the latter is totally what I want
Yeah I think we ALL want something like the latter, in a good way. It would be really awesome. Hopehopehopehopehope.

I only ever played the NES version which i picked out at random based on the box art, so the "real" arcade version always seemed weird to me.

just clarifying because between some of the posts here and Capcom's recent trend of giving out IPs for western reboots I wouldnt be surprised if they pulled a gritty Strider out of their sleeves, lol
Capcom can waste 10-20 million dollars making a shitty reboot with any western studio if it means we also get a great retro remake along with it, Rearmed style. :)

I'd welcome a strider 2d made by ninja theory too, I know it was a joke to knock against them, but there's no doubt they have the talent.

Anyways...HELL YES! New Strider!
