The official PlayStation Blog today offered up a new batch of screenshots for the PS4 version of Double Helix’s upcoming take on Capcom’s classic Strider franchise—along with an idea of when we’ll get the game and for what price.

As I mentioned in my hands-on report of Strider from last year’s Tokyo Games Show (which you can read by clicking here), this new re-imagining of the man known as Strider Hiryu and his adventures is feeling like an interesting mix of old and new. In some ways, what Double Helix is putting together is an homage to Capcom’s 1989 arcade classic that started it all. Then, I got into the stages that promise some level of exploration and more adventure-esque elements, and I couldn’t help but think of the very different–yet quite intriguing—NES Strider game.

My time at TGS was spent with the PS3 build of the game, which looked and played quite well—yet I’m kind of feeling that I might rather go next-gen when Strider hits. I’m just already too used to the new generation of controllers, interfaces, and services, and the more games I have to feed those hungry new consoles, the better.

When will that happen? According to the PlayStation Blog, they’ve been told by Capcom that Strider will be hitting in February (aka next month), for a price of $14.99. Strider will be released on the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
