Strider, released in Japan as Strider Hiryū (ストライダー飛竜?) is a platform game released for the CP System arcade hardware by Capcom in 1989. It became one of Capcom's early hits before Street Fighter II, revered for its innovative gameplay and multilingual voice clips during cutscenes (presented in Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, and English).
Out of the many ports of the game, four are notable:
- Sharp X68000 port: the most faithful port of the arcade original.
- Sega Mega Drive port: the most faithful port of the arcade original internationally released.
- TurboDuo port: it features one extra stage and many animated cutscenes.
- Playstation port: the most recent version (2000).
