Capcom has recently announced the release date for Double Helix’s take on Strider, which is slated for release on February 18th as a $14.99 digital download on the PlayStation Network, with the Xbox Live Arcade and Steam versions set to be released a day after on February 19th. 

That’s not all, however. Capcom has also revealed two new challenge modes called Beacon Run and Survival Mode. Beacon Run offers a speed-run race style mode that gives players a white-knuckled experience, challenging them to hit consecutive checkpoints while slicing through enemies in the shortest amount of time. Survival Mode tests player’s combat skills with a variety of different items and ability load outs, as waves of progressively difficult and diverse enemies converge on Strider Hiryu. They also promise global online leaderboards tracking for both modes including the Story mode.

To add more replay value, there will be a set of unlockables to obtain and various costumes which give you more options when customizing your own uniquely created character.
