“We appreciate the vote of confidence and as Inafune-san has indicated recently in his 1Up interview, we are thinking about it but there is no project of this sort in development at this time.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

“I can’t comment on any potential roadblocks, but I think Strider has enough juice to merit a next-gen sequel. Here’s a question for you guys though: Could a Strider in 3D recapture that same magic? Would it have to invent new magic? I’d love to see the giant mechanical Ape, or the politburo that turns into a giant robotic centipede w/sickle in 3d, but a lot of the best mechanics of the fights were very 2d-centric. I can already think of cool ways you could recreate that in 3d, but what do you think as Strider fans?” – Seth Killian, Capcom Sr. Manager, Community

I think Strider could work in 3D regardless of the platform that the title ended up being released on. Then again, it could look great as a 2D game as well!
