    “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?”

    Trying to imagine Strider in 3D only brings up Ninja Gaiden in my mind...

    Same. But maybe they think a 2D Strider wouldn't live up to today's "standards"?

    I thought the same with Bionic Commando Rearmed and Megaman 9, they both seemed to pull it off.

    Capcom makes their own standards.

    They should do a WiiWare, PSN, 360 Live 2D game first.

    I think they could pull it off in 3D and still make it different enough stand apart from the rest of the games around, as long as they keep with the original games tone, theme & enemy style.
