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 stage at their Summer Jam event in Tokyo. There Capcom revealed co-operative multiplayer for the upcoming third-person shooter, which players in attendance were given the opportunity to go hands-on with at the event. Also announced was the involvement  of Dai Sato of Halo Legends and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex fame, who is working on the game's story

Additionally Capcom proclaimed that E.X. Troopers would be getting a promotional anime film to be packaged with the August 30th release of Sengoku Basara HD Collection for PlayStation 3 and a limited edition of the game would include a figure of TeeKee, both of which are shaping up nicely if the screens in the gallery below are any indicationI think the game is looking fantastic thus far and can't help but think 3DS owners clamoring for something to play should give Capcom an earful. It'd be really unfortunate if this became yet another great-looking title that never made the journey west.

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...
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 ...
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...
