Lost Planet gets a whole lot more Japanese with the new trailer for E.X. Troopers. If you’re unaware, this is a spin-off game that takes place in the Lost Planet universe, offering space pirates, giant mechs and colossal sized enemies. The only difference is that it has a very altered style and allure to it. Not only is it differentiated by its name, but the game has a bright and lively art style, something similar to an anime. Over the top action mixed with over emphasized expressions, not to mention mech battles in space, this definitely is far from what we’ve come to expect in the dark and war torn world of E.D.N. III.
For all we know this will be best thing for Capcom’s franchise, maybe even rebranding it if the next Lost Planet game, developed by Spark Unlimited, doesn’t live up to the hype. E.X. Troopers will be released later this year in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation 3. Unfortunately nothing has been confirmed for the west, but don’t be surprised if we get it sooner or later.
