“Wait” you say, “that just looks like footage from a Japanese release of the Nintendo version of Strider! What’s the big deal?”

Oh ye of little faith! You forget one thing:

There was no Japanese Famicom release of Strider!

This is a commercial for what would have been the Famicom release of ‘Strider’, which was never released because they decided on an arcade debut instead (the one we’re all familiar with).

Here’s a speedrun (like you didn’t see THIS coming) of the Sega Genesis version, which stays true to the epic arcade anti-cyber-communist manifesto that is STRIDER.
