E.X. Troopers Really Is Like Lost Planet Meets Monster Hunter

By Spencer . August 16, 2012 . 12:12am

Capcom showed a new video of E.X. Troopers and it has a team based feel like Monster Hunter, but instead of chasing dinosaurs you’re shooting Akrid. Making E.X. Troopers a multiplayer first game was part of Capcom’s strategy for the Lost Planet franchise. They wanted to make a single player game that went back to the series roots and a multiplayer game that expanded on the concept from Lost Planet 2.

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

     I REALLY want to see this localized, probably more than anything else I can think of that’s coming out at the moment. Has it been comfirmed for an international release yet?

    • SpecDotSign

      Not yet. :( still confused as to why it’s PS3/3DS and not PS3/Vita. Capcom sure doesn’t want to take risks at all as to what games land on what portable.

      • raitouniverse

        So far, they’ve shown to be smart with what they support, and from the looks of it, it seems like they want to stay as far away from the Vita as they can. Fighting game ports excluded of course.

    I’m glad there are more playable characters, but I hope that’s not only for multiplayer.I want to be able to play as other characters in single player too.

       Same here. I rarely ever like the main characters of games, so I’m hoping you can switch to the partner characters in single player. If not, I hope the multiplayer has a lot of missions :V

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    As long as Capcom bring both version here, i am going to get one of them there lol.^_^

    Weird…Im not interested in LP but in thisXD

  • Darkrise

    I think it reminds me more of Phantasy Star than Lost Planet.

  • XypherCode

    A bit over the top cel shading bit still very nice. I feel it has a very good storyline to it also. Can’t wait to play online :))

  • manobon

    Anyone have links to 3ds-only gameplay footage? Or maybe a side by side comparison? Youtube searches yield “official” trailers from sources I don’t recognize (and look like they might just be the PS3 trailers).

  • Looks really really good! I hope there is a localization announcement soon =)

    • Christopher Nunes

      Same here!

  • Hatsuu

    I think my pants just exploded.
