Getting into its stride

Capcom announced a couple of days ago at San Diego Comic Con that a new Strider game was in the works and will be released digitally on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

It's a non-linear sidescrolling action game and Double Helix, the studio behind the upcoming free-to-play Killer Instinct on Xbox One, is developing it.

There was a bit of confusion over whether it would be coming to the Wii U eShop but it was later confirmed it will not be. However, there appears to be a chance it could make it eventually if there is demand for it.

Coming from NeoGAF:

First of all, Double Helix is developing the game. However Capcom Osaka is overviewing everything including the design.

Secondly, it releases for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC via Steam. I was mistaken in thinking I saw the eshop logo when I made the first tweet. I tried to correct it but getting any type of internet connection here is a miracle. I spoke with a few members of Double Helix about Wii U and they said they can port it “if there’s a demand for it.

So it looks as though Strider could make an appearance on Wii U eventually. It's scheduled for release in early 2014, so it'll be a while off yet.
