Strider is coming back. In a new eight minute gameplay video, you'll get to see what attendees of Tokyo Game Show got to play. In the demo Hiryu runs and slashes his way through a Metroidvania environment. Along the way, he'll collect various power-ups that allow him to access new parts of the level. For example, a charge attack will not only break through enemy shields, but power generators that unlock new doors. A slide attack will help you dodge bullet fire, but also bust through low grates that hide new passageways.
The video ends with a battle against a robotic dragon, and should give you a good idea of the kind of chaotic action Capcom is going for with their modern-day throwback.
