Lost Planet, Assault Heroes follow-ups rated

ESRB issues verdict on Capcom's Colonies for PC and 360, direct sequel to Vivendi's Xbox Live Arcade shooter.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board continues to break news of unannounced games, as this week the board updated its ratings database with assessments for new installments of Capcom's PC and Xbox 360 action game Lost Planet and Vivendi Games' Xbox Live Arcade cooperative shooter Assault Heroes.

Lost Planet Colonies had previously been trademarked by Capcom and rated by the ESRB's German counterpart on the Xbox 360, but now it appears the game is headed for the PC as well. A PlayStation 3 edition of the original game is expected to launch in the US later this month, but the ESRB listing made no mention of a PS3 edition of Colonies. Lost Planet Colonies received a rating of T for Teen.

The ESRB also issued a T for Teen rating for Assault Heroes 2 from Vivendi Games. A sequel to the 2006 Xbox Live Arcade game wouldn't be terribly surprising; Vivendi was so impressed with the original game's Chilean developer Wanako Studios that it purchased the outfit in February of 2007. At the time Vivendi said the group was working on 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures for Live Arcade, as well as a number of unannounced projects for its Sierra Online imprint. Since then, Wanako has produced Arkadian Warriors for Live Arcade.

Woa... they could've done better advertising the sequal to lost planet. This is the first time ive heard about it, awesome I loved the first one. I can't wait for that but ive never tried assault troopers so im not really looking forward to that. LOST PLANET COLONIES WOOT!

I liked lost planet, but I loved Dead Rising. As soon as the second one comes out, it's mine.

So.... the PS3 port of Lost Planet should be out soon? I figure you just do that, and have Lost Planet 2 release on all three platforms, same day, same stuff, in a year or two. Staggered release dates suck. I wouldn't expect Capcom to bring out a Lost Planet sequel too soon, since they have so many other high quality games coming out. Well DMC4 just came out, and that new game Dark Void is scheduled for a Q4 release this year. Plus, you have RE5, Street Fighter IV, and Bionic Commando all coming this year or next. AND, Dead Rising hit in August 2006, well before Lost Planet, which came out in January 2007. So Dead Rising 2 "should" hit before Lost Planet 2.

Well, what ever happens I hope they stay true to the online experience because thats awesome. But I do have to admit, the campaign itself was for the most part, mediocre but had alot of potential. Espescially if they stay intune with its current storyline and build on it, just make it better, heaps better!

I liked the first Lost Planet. Still need to finish that game. A sequel for it would be nice. I heard Arkadian Warriors was a decent game. I need to check that one out when I have a chance.

So how long before release do they typically rate games?

Why the big hype on a game that has nothing but good graphics? I mean the action in Lost Planet was so repetitive and boring!

please dont flame people. the game is pretty good although review overhyped it. i dont care if ninja gaiden sigma is a remake of the xbox golden gem, cause it is such a great game. Some people don't mind playing a game that is old. many great games are always ported. The ps3 also has many great games. I agree that most are ports but the ps3 came out after so that is obvious. the original xbox had many ports of ps2 games also until later when the ps2 versions were mainly ports of xbox games.

How much would you want to bet that Lost Planet becomes the current gen version of Mega Man. Money has it the game will launch with the same crappy game play the last one had. I played the first Lost Planet and enjoyed it, but if the next game doesn't have a new engine....I don't know how interested I am.

I totally forgot that the Lost Planet PS3 wasn't even out yet. Wow, that's a long port.

OK louzero , before the fanboys start going crazy, im gonna say something. To say the PS3 has no games is just ignorant. I mean have you actually looked at the games. Has all the good games save gears and halo. I wouldn't say it has many outstanding games, but it has a ton of great games. I do agree that they need some more exclusives, but to say that it has no games at all is just dumb. Now the sony fanboy's can start the incoherent flaming

This is the best part of the ESRB. I just wish they could break news about something bigger every once and a while.

Hopefully Lost Planet Colonies will have a better story than the first one. Dont get me wrong, I love Lost planet, but the story had some weird plot points that were hard to follow the first time I played it through. Itd be nice to see some new multiplayer modes as well.

louzero, wow, make up your mind. I mean, do you hate both systems? Just Sony? Love/Hate relationship with both? Wow.

I liked Lost Planet, although I hope you get to play as more than Wayne, because Wayne was kinda pointless.

I hope Capcom makes a game that only focus's on the mech part of Lost Planet, because that was the funnest part of the game.

Assault Heroes remains one of my favorite Live Arcade games. I'm glad to see it's getting a sequel!

[quote]iouzero shut up ppl dont care about lost planet i dont know why its even geting ported. i think halo 3 wouldnt sell at all on the BS3 because it doesn't exist. if they put it on the ps3 then it would sell 3 copies cause halo sucks. oh and dead rising was fun for the first 5 minutes [/quote] What exactly are you trying to say, this post just comes across as someone who is jealous and acting juvenile. I'm pretty positive those ports would sell quite a bit although we all know they would never get ported in the first place.

Doesn't mean it isn't still out there, Loverboy. It just means they have it rated and trademarked first.

Wow! Really......you mean.....people care about this? Good for Fony and their BS3 for having to scoop up games that were not all that good to begin with. Hey as long as they are pickikng up crummy over rated 360 games I say we find a way to put Halo on BS3 so they can both just die.

A sequel to LP but not Dead Rising? This is bull****. DR was the better game and more deserving of a sequel.

I hope Capcom'd improved on gameplay, a bit more action-oriented (original game's really cool, but lacked some more action-gameplay and better sound)
