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 indication. I 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.
