For those of you who haven’t heard, Capcom recently held a press conference in which they announced sequels to two very popular games – Dead Rising 2 and Lost Planet 2. Details are currently trickling in about both titles.
Today Capcom released the first trailer and images from Lost Planet 2 along with the fact that the project is being spearheaded by Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi. Most notably about the trailer was the lush, tropical atmosphere. The first Lost Planet took place on a completely snow covered landscape (Star Wars fans, think of planet Hoth). The game also follows in the footsteps of Resident Evil 5, with its campaign being playable entirely co-op.
One question that has yet to be fully answered is whether or not Capcom will approach these two games with its current multi-platform release policy. Both Dead Rising and Lost Planet were exclusive to the Xbox 360. Will their sequels follow Resident Evil 5 onto the PlayStation 3?
No release dates have been announced, so far, for either title. Check back for more info as it becomes available.
