In development at Double Helix, the game is coming to next-generation machines the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC (through Steam).

"The year is Meio: 048, and Hiryu, a young but deadly assassination expert is out to eliminate Grand Master Meio," reads the game's description.

The new Strider game was described as brand new and nonlinear with a Castlevania: Symphony of the Night-style structure.

In a post to Capcom's blog, the company said the new Strider will feature "high-speed Cypher combat," as well as various unique Cypher abilities that players can earn throughout the game. The game will also see the return of robot allies, Capcom said.

Developer Double Helix is also behind this November's Killer Instinct for Xbox One.
