Mega Drive Strider coming to European Virtual Console

Hiryū!

Cult classic action platformer Strider is coming to the European Virtual Console, according to Nintendo Life.

It is the Mega Drive version, which launched in 1990 following the arcade version's Japanese release a year earlier.

Side-scroller Strider was one of Capcom's earliest hit games, pre-dating Street Fighter 2. It was praised for its detailed visuals and groundbreaking gameplay. Series star Strider Hiryū is a sci-fi ninja who takes down an evil fictional future Soviet Socialist Republic.

The Strider announcement follows news that fellow Capcom classic, Super Street Fighter 2, is coming to the Wii download service, but both games are apparently published by Sega.
