E.X. Troopers Trailer Has Vital Suits, Battles And Manga-Style Cutscenes

E.X. Troopers is another of the games that Capcom brought to the Tokyo Game Show this year, and they’ve released a new trailer for it that shows off combat and event cutscenes, which you can watch below:



E.X. Troopers’ mission structure makes it sound a lot like Monster Hunter. You can eat at a cafeteria for a status boost, complete missions, and use materials to remodel and upgrade your weapons. However, the game also has a few things in common with Lost Planet, such as Akrids and Vital Suits, which isn’t surprising, considering that it’s a spin-off of the Lost Planet series.


Speaking with Siliconera, Lost Planet executive producer, Kenji Ohguro, revealed that Capcom wanted to make a “party shooter” kind of game set in the Lost Planet world. This was something they tried to do with Lost Planet 2, but felt that it didn’t quite fit with the series’ narrative strengths. Thus, E.X. Troopers was born.


E.X. Troopers will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS on November 22nd. While the 3DS version will be limited to local multiplayer, the PlayStation 3 version will have online play.

    …Oh God. Is that Yuuki Kaji? Likw I haven’t had enough of him in Guilty Crown, and Aquarion Evol…

    Well, voice actors aside, this game looks incredible. It’s a shame we’re stuck with Lost Planet 3 instead of this for the time being.

    • IsaacGravity

      To be fair, Kaji is summoning his Hyoudou Issei for his role.

      He’s MUCH better off at doing hot-blooded and/or good-natured “everyday” (like Ichinose from Inazuma Eleven or Haruaki from CubexCursedxCurious) characters than weak-willed ones.

      • Rudy Soto

        It’s not necessarily that I think he’s bad at what he does, it just that its hard for me to think anything positive when hearing the voice considering the fact that he voiced a terrible character that utterly ruined a series I had really enjoyed, and all I can hear from now on in my head is him screaming “Mikono-san!!”

        • IsaacGravity

          No argument there. I’m trying to keep Evol  as far away from mind myself really.

    The most interesting thing I’ve seen from Capcom in a long time (before AA5 announcement) and we already know we won’t get it. I mean, look at it! What a waste… At least the PS3 is region free.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Well they said they currently don’t have any plan for this game to release here but who knows if they are going to change their mind in future?^_^

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Game is lookin’ awesome. Can’t wait for it’s release.

  • Looks good, any word if there’s a romance/affinity aspect to this?

  • badmoogle

    What a coincidence…I just downloaded the PS3 trailer some minutes ago from the JPN store.It looks amazing!Really hope it comes in the west one day.

  • Please Capcom, don’t make me beg for a localization.

    Everything about E.X. Troopers just screams fun. The music, vibrant colors, characters, and combat. I want this sooooo bad =^_^=

  • Cephrien

    Lost my shiit at the part when the VS did the ORAORAORAORA punch. 

    So friggin’ dope.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Orararara mecha? Consider i am sold lol.^_^

  • Helepythia

    I’ve played Lost Planet 2, and I hope the trophy list isn’t gonna be that hard.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I don’t know why but all the aspect in this game click on me lol.^_^ The bright animation, funny MC?, cool Mecha? combo attacking?

    I really hope that Capcom will change their mind and try bringing this game here as LP3 is not really appealing to me if you ask me.T_T

    • I KNOW RIGHT!! Maybe I prefer those anime style more than survivor horror lol. Plus the story had the potential to go Evangelion to a new direction not seen in LP series.

  • Klaus00

    Finally gameplay of the mechs , as a Lost Planet fanboy I still can’t accept this as a spin-off but I definitely am In love with it as a standalone game(might sound ridicilous) I’m importing this :P

  • XypherCode

    I’m still getting this when it’s released but I’m still hoping for a localization. :)

  • Nitraion

    Wow All I can say is looks better than RE 6 already….

  • Demeanor

    How utterly badass!!! A mecha pulling of a Mudamudamuda on an enemy?! And the game looks like the manga Freezing with Okami-style graphics and a pinch of Zoe thrown in! 
    This game keeps looking more and moar appealing ^ ^
