Strider's 25-Year History In Just Five Minutes

Strider's 25-Year History In Just Five Minutes

In 1989, marking the start of the blue-clad ninja's two-and-a-half decade career, the first Strider game was released in arcades throughout Japan and North America. From then on, it was a road filled with cameos, curious localisation decisions, and slashed-up baddies.

To celebrate the upcoming reboot of the platformer series, Capcom lovingly crafted a short five-minute video, in which we get to see Strider (both the series and the character) gradually evolve into its modern version. It's a great watch if you're a fan, and also if you're new to this whole Strider thing and want to know what all the fuss is about. Take a look:
