The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Capcom Debuts New Game EX-Troopers

Posted on Wednesday, May 16 @ 15:12:08 PST by

As revealed by Famitsu, Capcom is setting up an offshoot of Lost Planet called EX-Troopers developed by Shintaro Kojima, one of the producers behind Monster Hunter, who hopes that it is seen as "a beginners' action shooter".

Set to release for PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS, EX-Troopers is set in the same universe as Lost Planet, but will have a different visual theme. Players will be pit in the role of Bren Turner, a recruit from the EDN-2nd academy who has been transferred to EDN-3rd, just in time for the fight against the EDN-3rd and snow pirates plus Akrid aliens.

Bren will need to navigate between three bases, each with their own academy members. It will introduce new characters like Gingira, a vital suit with a high-tech AI that can communicate with Bren, and TeeKee, a snow pirate who can for some mysterious reason communicate with the Akrid aliens. Do I smell a villain?

EX-Troopers looks to be trademarked in the US and Europe as well, so we should expect an international release. The game, which is about 60% complete, will be in playable form for the Capcom Summer Jam in Tokyo held at June 30 and July 1.
