E.X. Troopers: Lost Planet turned cute and super Japanese

One might argue that third-person shooter series Lost Planet is already Japanese, but...well, not really. It's pretty western, as that was the goal for the title at some point. But what if you took the basics -- space explor...

Jetpacks and enemy juggling in E.X. Troopers gameplay vid

From the moment I laid eyes on E.X. Troopers I had a feeling I had a pretty good feeling about the project. Cel-shaded graphics, an anime-inspired art-style, spaceships, mechs, what more could I ask for? Apparently the ...

E.X. Troopers getting multiplayer, anime, limited edition

For a game that's coming to PlayStation 3 and 3DS later this year Capcom has been pretty tight lipped about E.X. Troopers. Well, that is until today when the publisher brought the cel-shaded Lost Planet spin-off center ...

Have a taste of Lost Planet spin-off E.X. Troopers' story

Capcom didn't bring their Lost Planet spin-off to E3, but it hasn't taken them long to get the cel-shaded third-person shooter back on our radar. The publisher has revealed the setup for the title's plot and the motivati...

E3: Drilling elbows and more in Lost Planet 3

Having played and enjoyed Lost Planet when it first came out only to stay far, far away from Lost Planet 2, I'm still eager to give Lost Planet 3 a chance. It is, after all, a full-on prequel with a noticeably different dire...

E3: This year will be Capcom's biggest booth ever

I just got a press release heralding the most exciting news to come out of E3, ever. You might want to sit down for this. Capcom will be occupying their biggest booth ever for this year's event. In the history of their attend...

Sorry angry Mega Man fans, EX Troopers is not Legends 3

Last week Capcom unveiled a rather unusual new project. E.X. Troopers is a cel-shaded third-person shooter with a manga-style art direction. Sounds plenty Japanese, but not exactly out of the ordinary. Oh, did ...

Hands-on preview: Lost Planet 3

Remember that hands-off Lost Planet 3 reveal demonstration I saw last month? Capcom finally let me put my hands on it -- that exact demo. It makes me wonder why they didn't let me play it in the first place. Still, I was able to finally play through it last week, and as you'd imagine, I have a bit more to say about it.

E.X. Troopers yanks a character from Mega Man Legends 3

One of the weirdest games to be announced so far this year is E.X. Troopers, the manga-style Lost Planet spin-off for the 3DS and the PS3. After Lost Planet 2 failed to set the world ablaze, a lot of people thought the series...

Cel-shaded Lost Planet spin-off EX Troopers looks amazing

Remember that thought you had about Lost Planet way back when? You know, that one about it being alright and everything, except for the fact that it desperately needed cel-shaded anime graphics. Well, friend, you're in ...

Game director and franchise creator Kenji Oguro says that Lost Planet 3 is the closest they have come to his original vision for the series. This sequel returns to the harsh, extreme conditions of the first game, but now puts a heavy focus on narrative and storytelling. The gameplay has transitioned to home in on survival and exploration, moving on from the arcade-y play of the first title, or the cooperative team play of the second. Oguro says that he's really pleased with how the elements have come together for Lost Planet 3, and that he cannot wait to show users the final product.

Lost Planet 2 has great ass jiggle physics

Lost Planet 2 didn't do so well when it was released for a variety of reasons. However, it's good to know that such important work went into making the ass jiggle physics so good. And by good, I mean dammit this should have been a better game than it turned out to be. Why wasn't Lost Planet 2 c ... [Shane Bettenhausen's Twitter, via David Ellis's Twitter]
