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 luck -- the folks at Capcom are mind readers and always strive to fulfill your desires...as long as they don't include Mega Man.
But seriously, I'm not sure anyone knew they wanted this crazy Lost Planet spin-off, but here it is and after watching that trailer (and re-watching it half a dozen times) I'm incredibly excited about it. E.X. Troopers is an action shooter that follows the story of a group of students caught up in a fight between the snow pirates and Akrid.
Headed up by Monster Hunter series producer Shintaro Kojima, Capcom is bringing E.X. Troopers to PS3 and 3DS, a rather odd combination. While few other details are known about the project at the moment, the title will be playable next month at Capcom's Summer Jam in Tokyo.
