Could Capcom’s Strider series be making a return on XBLA?

Strider_Hiryu_(character)

The crafty members of NeoGAF‘s forums have discovered yet another possible unannounced XBLA game, Strider. Box art (found after the jump) was found on xbox.com some time in January, but was promptly removed from the site. The discovery went largely unnoticed until Polygon reported just days ago that a Steam achievement was also found for the game.

According to Eurogamer, a reboot of the series was in development at Bionic Commando Rearmed developer GRIN before the company went belly up in 2009. Capcom is expected to announce new games at PAX East this weekend. Could Strider be getting the remake treatment? Is it a new installment? Is it a re-release as part of the Capcom Arcade Cabinet? Possibly. The original release was in 1989, and thus far we’ve only received the 1985 and 1986 game packs. Either way, more of Strider Hiryu could never be a bad thing.

Rumor: Awesomenauts DLC character info discovered

Remember that new DLC character Ronimo Games just announced for Awesomenauts earlier today? GameFAQs member MirorB claims he’s discovered just about every element of the two DLC characters he claims are named Coco Nebulon (the girl recently announced) and Derpl Zork. He claims to have explored the .DDS files and found an unrefined picture of the characters’ sprites (below). Since then he’s posted the description, (some) base stats, move sets and an entire upgrade list of both characters. Since the first post wherein he posted a screen capture of the files he was viewing, no further evidence has been provided. However, having reviewed all of the upgrades, we believe the format is in-line with Ronimo’s build development methods.

Months ago a minor leak was captured by members on the Awesomenauts forums noting two characters, a slug and a girl with goggle, when Ronimo Games posted a screen grab to their Facebook with the DLC characters on it. We now know the girl with goggles is real, so the slug probably is as well.

Here’s the description of both characters: Read More

Marketplace listing outs Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World

Sega recently announced their Vintage Collection for PlayStation Network and WiiWare. Sadly the Xbox 360 wasn’t in the original announcement, however a marketplace listing reveals that a slightly different collection will be coming to our platform of choice. Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World is a combination of three classic Wonder Boy titles: Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy in Monster World, and Monster World IV, the latter of which will be making its debut appearance outside of Japan. The listing shows a release date of April 25, 2012, however these dates are sometimes placeholders, so we can’t confirm that as an actual release. Thanks to @lifelower for the initial tip that got the ball rolling. Hit the jump for the official description and a slew of screenshots.
