News: Lost Planet “E.X. Troopers” Tie-In Announced

In a move that’s more than a little bit uplifting, Capcom it seems haven’t entirely abandoned the Lost Planet series. A new Capcom developed cel shaded and anime styled game called E.X. Troopers has been announced. Both 4Gamer and Famitsu have the scoop, along with a nice promo trailer (shown below). Functionally it looks a bit more arcadey in places, with the player dashing around a bit now, but it’s still very much a Lost Planet game. Especially as many recognisable Akrid are present not to mention the all important Vital Suits. Released on both PS3 and 3DS, the game will also be playable at this year’s Capcom Summer Jam. Interestingly, Shintaro Kojima (the game’s producer) also worked on the Monster Hunter series so expect even more of that type of functionality in this game. It also seems that May’n, of Macross Frontier fame, will involved musically too. In any case, our faith in Lost Planet has been reaffirmed and we can’t wait for this when it’s released later this year.

As one of the few people that thoroughly enjoyed Lost Planet 2 and still plays it from time to time with his friends in co-op squads or in 4vs4-Deathmatches, I’m seriously looking forward to this. At first, the (well-executed!) Anime style put me a bit off, but the gorgeous soundtrack had me back on the boat faster than I could say ‘Akrid’. Also, Lost Planet on my 3DS, from the Director of Monster Hunter? I’m smelling many, many hours of gratuitous multiplayer fun on the go there. Now all I’m wondering is if there’s going to be Mecha gameplay on the ground, and if there are going to be a similar amount of little extras like those found in Lost Planet 2.

I am in full support of this comment!

Knowing our luck, Capcom probably won’t bring this to the US. D:<
