Capcom is expanding Lost Planet with a new game called E.X. Troopers where you play as a Vital Suit pilot in training. Bren Tanner, a driven kid who often puts his foot in his mouth, aims to be the top Gingira pilot in EDN-3rd. Gingira is a prototype Vital Suit with next generation artificial intelligence loaded on board.
E.X. Troopers begins when Bren leaving his home town and traveling to the NEVEC Academy. A group of unknown Vital Suits attack the transport and with the help of his instructor, Walter, Bren pilots the experimental Gingria and defeats the attackers, but all of the passengers have to leave the ship and land on EDN-3. Bren and Walter are seen in an escape pod falling towards the planet’s atmosphere.
E.X. Troopers is in development for PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS.
