A Look At The Lost Planet 2 x Monster Hunter Crossover

By Spencer . April 15, 2010 . 1:10am


Wesker isn’t the only cameo in Lost Planet 2. A tiny slice of Monster Hunter slipped into Capcom’s alien hunting game.


Lost Planet 2 has a Rior hide, based off the wyvern Rathalos, which will be available as downloadable content. Capcom notes this bonus is only for PlayStation 3. Gears of War icons Marcus Fenix and Dom Santiago are exclusive to the Xbox 360 version. Both consoles get Wesker and Frank West costumes.

    haha, nice, that’s pretty badass — I was like a few other people though and was hoping Snake might show up on the PS3 version >w<'

    • yh totally BADASS!!

  • I find it amusing that they’d have Monster Hunter skins, yet the PS3 seems to be the only system they are not putting the franchise on…

    • capristrider

      Yeah I agree absolutley, both XBOX and Wii will or will have Mon’ Hunter but not PS3. At least the character skin looks cool, although it based of a dinosaur’s hide (bum cheeks) from MH!

      • Code

        Although the bulk of MH games have been on the PSP, coincidentally made by Sony.

        • capristrider

          I do hope they bring MH to PS3 though, The original MH did start out on PS2 and Monster Hunter Tri was originally planned to be on PS3 but due to high development cost was canned.

          If MH Tri is succesful in the west for Wii, Capcom may consider porting to PS3 (shouldn’t be too much hassle as Monster Hunter and Lost Planet share a lot of similarites in terms of technology/middleware used)

          Here hoping…

          • Code

            Yep, I mean the series had got it’s start on Sony’s systems and most of it’s life has been on the PSP, but I dunno if they’d bother porting MH3 to PS3, they have the next PSP game which is already basically MH3+. Not saying they won’t consider doing something for PS3 in the future, but if you ask me, chances are it won’t be a port of MH3 and it probably won’t be worked off the Lost Planet 2 engine (although I support the notion of Monster Hunter with grappling hooks) there’s better ways I figure to go about making a MH on PS3 then working backwards from Lost Planet 2.

    That costume is pretty cool but now I feel like they’re taunting me. :(

  • Capcom sure knows how to torture it’s fans. :(

  • haha i had this feeling they were going to add a Monster Hunter skin, and of all armors its the Rathalos skin awsome!
