Look whose coming to shoot things with a really big gun in Lost Planet 2. It’s a set of Rathalos Armor from the Monster Hunter series and Frank West from Dead Rising. Oh, Capcom you are all about the exciting crossovers and cameos. At this rate LP 2 could have more guest stars than one of your vs. games, and I don’t think many people would have a problem with that.
Now everyone in the West who is squealing with delight — stop that. It’s unbecoming and furthermore only half of this is coming to us. The Monster Hunter armor is a PS3 exclusive to Japan at the moment. That doesn’t mean it won’t ever be coming to Western shores though. Capcom Unity wants to hear if you’d be interested in seeing this sucker in the West. Needless to say, most of the replies so far have involved the words f*ck and yes.
If you can read Japanese and want to know more, you may do so here.
