Anime Styled Lost Planet Spin Off Announced For The PS3 and 3DS
Capcom announced a new shooter that takes place in the Lost Planet universe called Ex Trooper.
Unlike previous titles in the series, this action shooter for the PS3 and 3DS will boasts anime visuals and will star a high school girl.
EX Troopers tells of the fight between the snow pirates and Akrid aliens on EDN-3rd. You play as Bren Turner, a young man who’s come to the academy (the game has a school theme) from EDN-2nd.
The main characters are TeeKee, a female snow pirate who has the ability to communicate with the Akrid, and Gingira, a Vital Suit that’s loaded with next generation AI and can communicate with its pilot. Gingira calls Bren “Master.”
The EDN-3rd planet has three bases, each with unique traits. You select one of these to serve as your base of operations. The three bases figure into the story, as while Bren comes from one base, other members of the academy come from different bases. The story will be told through “manga demo” cut scenes (similar to Gravity Rush).
Monster Hunter producer Shintaro Kojima is pioneering the game which is currently 60% complete. Ex Trooper will be playable at Capcom’s Summer Jam event in Japan.
