After yesterday's rumour that Strider is coming to Wii Virtual Console we asked Capcom Europe exactly what's going on. We're now happy to report that the rumours were true: the Mega Drive version of Strider is coming to Virtual Console.

Interestingly the game — and fellow westward-bound VC title Super Street Fighter II with online play — are both being published by SEGA, not Capcom. We've reached out to SEGA for more information and will update when we hear more.

Update: SEGA has responded with "no comment".
