Strider Hiryu was created as a collaboration Capcom and Moto Kikaku: the first would develop two seperate games (Arcade & Famicom) while the latter produced a manga.
Illustrated by Tatsumi Wada and written by Tetsuo Shiba, the manga appeared as a 6-part serial in the monthly magazine Comic Computique from May to October 1988, then released as a stand-alone manga.
Since then the character has become a very popular game hero, and the book's value just keeps on rising.

226 pages, Japanese.

STATUS
The X68000 Strider Hiryu was Capcom's first release on the format.
It is a cut above the rest, too: the game is pretty much arcade-perfect, and even runs in the same resolution.
Perfect in every way.

Large pastic PC case, 3 x 5" floppies, instruction manual.

The PC Engine version of Strider Hiryu was first announced in late 1991 as a Supergrafx title, along with a SGX port of Galaxy Force II (1988). Delayed for close to 2 years, it was re-announced as a CD game and eventually released in late 1994 on Arcade CD-ROM².
This development chaos caused it to be a bit edgy on the technical front, but it more than gets away with it by throwing in a superb CD soundtrack, new animated intros and an all-new 'Extra' stage.
A very nice version, with a charm all of its own.

CD case, PCE Arcade CD-ROM² disc, colour booklet, spine card.
