Failed Strider and Streets of Rage Game Reboots Revealed

The Strider and Streets of Rage reboots that almost were.

It seems that before it went under in 2009 Grin, the developer behind  Bionic Commando, Wanted and Terminator: Salvation, was attempting reboot to two game very close to my gaming heart – Strider and Streets of Rage. These were two of my fave games as a young gamer and I think both were worthy of a reboot (so long as  they were good reboots of course) on a next-gen console.

To add insult to injury there’s a cgi trailer for Strider and some images from both the games that will now never see the light of day.

Given that the developer didn’t have a particularly good track record in the games it was releasing maybe we dodged a bullet but I hope one day someone else picks up these projects.

Here’s a look at the Strider CGI trailer.
