While E.X. Troopers looks nothing like Lost Planet aesthetically, it’s actually an anime-esque spin-off of that series. Yes, that includes the multiplayer focus as well, which was demonstrated at Capcom’s ongoing Game Jam event last night. Details are scarce on this front, though, so you’ll have to settle for a new trailer instead:
E.X. Troopers is being written by Dai Sato, who worked on the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eureka 7 anime series. In order to promote the game, Capcom have contracted anime studio, Satelight, to produce an anime movie, which will be included with Sengoku Basara HD Collection in August.
E.X. Troopers is in development for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 3. Capcom will release the game sometime this year, but haven’t specified when.
