Amazon just purchased Double Helix, making Strider the studio’s first release as a subsidiary of the octo-retailer. Co-developed with Capcom, it’s a remake of the 1989 arcade side-scroller (also by Capcom) wherein you guide a sword-swinging martial artist through a Blade Runner-esque metropolis, dispatching ninjas and the like on your expedition to cross blades with the game’s big bad, Grandmaster Meio.
What’s new? Metroid-like “free” city exploration, allowing you to hunt for weapons and other miscellany at leisure.
(Also for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox 360)
