Via the Capcom Unity blog, the action-packed reboot by Double Helix will arrive on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on February 18th, then on PC the day after. All versions of "Strider" will be priced at $14.99.

The Capcom Unity blog also took this opportunity to announce two new challenge modes: Beacon Run and Survival Mode. As their name suggest, Beacon Run focuses on players dashing through a level in record time, while Survival Mode test their skills with waves of increasingly difficult opponents. Finally, players will be able to customize "Strider" star Hiryu with costumes from his fallen Striders within the levels.

Provided by Capcom Unity, a new slideshow featuring the latest screenshots of "Strider" is available to view. For previous coverage, click here. The "Strider" reboot follows Double Helix's successful relaunch of the "Killer Instinct" franchise for Microsoft and the Xbox One.
