With numerous multiplayer modes and a highly engrossing cinematic single player experience, Lost Planet 3 delves deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique environment of E.D.N. III.
Capcom is treating Lost Planet 3 in a similar fashion to DMC: Devil May Cry by outsourcing the development to a Western studio: Spark Unlimited and at the same time giving it a bit of a reboot. Lost Planet 3 though, is a prequel rather than a full blown reimagining revealing the origins of Human colonisation on E.D.N. III. I got the chance to get my hands on a demo build of Lost Planet 3 to see if the series is back on track or if it should have been left out in the cold.
Lost Planet 3 was just announced to be coming in early 2013.
Early details suggest that the 3rd installment of the Lost Planet series is being developed by SPARK UNLIMITED which produced games such as Call Of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, and Legendary.
The main draw of the previous Lost Planet games for me were the VS suits. Giant Gundam like mechas that you can control throughout. Also the addition of the “quick turn” movement was a great implementation in the controls. I would’ve loved to see this movement scheme implemented in other games.
