Fist pumped in celebration

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".
