With the upcoming digital release of Strider, Capcom is offering up a chance for fans in the West to collect something from our neighbors in the East.
So, how does one obtain this physical copy of Strider for the PlayStation 3?
Just follow these three easy steps as noted on the Capcom_Unity Blog:
Step 1) Follow @capcom_unity on Twitter. Surely you already were.
Step 2) Retweet THIS TWEET by 12pm PT on Monday, March 3rd. Further Twitter love for Strider is appreciated but optional. <3 Step 3) Wait for us to announce on Twitter that the winners have been selected. Winners will receive Direct Messages on Twitter asking for their mailing information.
If you are wondering about playability, the game discs will play on Western PlayStation 3 consoles.
There are a few steps to take to access some of the content (Strider 1 and 2 from the Japanese PSN) but it’s nothing us gamers can’t handle. In fact, click here.
Being a video game fan and living in the US often leads to jealousy. This envy comes in the form of drooling over releases that only hit the epicenter of gaming known as Japan. It’s a little comforting to know that Capcom is taking great strides to bring non-region locked items elsewhere.
*Note: you have until March 3, 2014 to win. Visit the Capcom_Unity Blog for more details.
Here is the additional content found inside the disc package:
-Japanese version of the new Strider (playable on Western PS3s)
-Download tokens for Strider 1 and 2 “Game Archives” on PSN.*
-Strider Hiryu PS3 custom theme.*
