If You Liked Persona 2: Innocent Sin’s New Opening, Watch This E.X. Troopers Anime

By Spencer . August 1, 2012 . 11:10pm

Capcom hired Satelight, the studio behind the Persona 2: Innocent Sin PSP opening movie and Macross Frontier the Movie, to make a promotional E.X. Troopers mini-anime.


As you can tell by the clip, E.X. Troopers is much lighter than Lost Planet 3 with a shonen style protagonist and a cast of colorful characters. You plan as Bren, a newcomer to the academy who manages to take control of a prototype Vital Suit when his ship is under attack.


E.X. Troopers comes out on November 22 for PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS.

    Are we just seeing 3DS footage or will the PS3 version be virtually the same, only a higher res?

    Not that I suspect this will leave Japan, what with a west getting its own tailored version.

  • puchinri

    This just wouldn’t be right for Satelight (or something newer and mecha in general, but Satelight especially) to not have May’n or Megumi to do the song. Cute and fun short~.

    • LynxAmali

      Or AKINO.

      Yeah, I went there.

      • puchinri

         Oh, I love AKINO! Now I wish it were her instead. ;u;

  • Carocaro4

    holy shooots! That was an awesome op! Great job at catching  the mood of the game 
    Satelight! So cool.

  • Shadowman

    I was thinking they could make this an anime on the side but they got to get this game to the west first that trailer was soooo official.

  • I can’t see where the targeted audiences overlap.  At all.  I play Tales games, God Eater, and Valkyria Chronicles 2 and somehow this still seems too anime for my tastes…

  • French

    Bren looks like a likeable character ! 

  • neetyneety

    I wish they hadn’t kept the backgrounds songs while the song was playing; kinda ruins the amazing song when there’s gunfire and roars in the background.

  • Zonic505

    Dang, that trailer made me wish they actually did make some kind of anime, even if it was just an OVA.

  • Damn that was a fun opening! I really hope this gets localized. Also, dat robot bro fist was too awesome lol.

  • sd28

    lol mecha bro fist

  • Natsu SF style!!!!

    But I wonder will there be twist and turn along the way……

  • Voltech44

    Ah, Capcom, you know just how I like my games — overflowing with style and ridiculousness.

  • Solomon_Kano

    It’s a pity that we’re essentially guaranteed not to see this, because I really liked that opening and what else I’ve seen of the game so far.

    Kind smart on Capcom, I suppose. Split the series in two. Let the west have Lost Planet and establish E.X. Trooper with a distinctly Japanese flavor. Sucks since I’d like to have both, but what can ya do?

  • Göran Isacson

    Okay, Kenshiro-bot and humanbot respectknuckles are my critical weaknesses: I am now completely on board with this games hype train.

  • isfuturebright

    I’m really surprised on the effort Capcom is making to promote this game… I really REALLY hope they bring this to the US…
