Strider 2, released in Japan as Strider Hiryū 2 (ストライダー飛竜２ Sutoraidā Hiryū Tsū?), is Capcom's 1999 sequel to the original Strider. The game is actually the second sequel to Strider produced, following the U.S. Gold-produced Strider II released in 1990, a game with which Capcom was not directly involved. The Capcom-produced Strider 2 makes no references to the western-only Strider Returns. The game was released in arcades in December 1999 and was ported to the PlayStation in 2000.
