I don't understand the system choices, but ok.... I guess it could be interesting. Any word on cross platform matches? :P

#4 Posted by Phoenix534 (17774 posts) -

That's a weird choices of systems, but if it's good I guess it really doesn't matter.

:o

Interesting...

PS3 and 3DS...clearly Capcom wants the Cows to get the console experience, the Sheep to get the handheld experience, and the Lemmings to get the 'no game' experience....:P

Doesn't seem that strange to me. This is a Japanese game from a Japanese publisher. The only two platforms that are healthy in Japan right now are 3DS and PS3.

360 has no gamez. It needed to be said. Even Capcom knows not to release such epic games on 360 :P

It's not a weird combo... what does the Playstation and Nintendo Handhelds have in common ? pretty weird sh!t is released for those systems from time to time that you usually don't hear about.

first scans are up, nice and clean cel-shading there.
#11 Posted by Shirokishi_ (11204 posts) -

Doesnt look half bad, very clean. Assuming its a PS3 shot. Probably wont look half bad on the 3DS.

#12 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -

Well, the artstyle isn't skin-crawling. Could be good.

It maybe fair to say Capcom may get the 'no sales' experience. However this seems more suited to Japanese tastes and Capcom may just be trying to captilise the most from dedicated handhelds and PS3 in Japan.

360 already being phased out. For shame.
#16 Posted by Crazyguy105 (9513 posts) -

It sounds so weird, I can't help but love the idea. Lets hope it comes to the US and EU.

#17 Posted by finalstar2007 (25440 posts) -

And 360 continue to have no games :)

Weird combinationbut makes sense financial wise.

#19 Posted by Slashkice (13468 posts) -

That girl's outfit looks incredibly stupid.

As for the game, I'll need to see more. The Lost Planet universe doesn't interest me at all, but obviously they're going in a different direction here.

HOW ORIGINAL!

#21 Posted by Javos_25 (138 posts) -

Hopefully this marks the return of third party exclusives :). There was always much more quality when Capcom was developing exclusive games: Resident Evil 1-4, Okami, DmC 1-3, Onimusha series

Never seen that before.... ignoring the couple hundreds anime who have that setting.

Could be good but so far, I'm not interested.

I guess Capcom finally realised that lems don't like games. Just a matter of time before others follow them.

its not coming to the 360 so you can expect it, since I don't buy capcom games anymore only rent them or get em once they hit below 19 dollars, I'm not really interested in this.

Capcom? So half the game locked away on the disc followed by a Super edition for half the price months down the road. No thanks.

Japanese devs clearly take much bigger risks than western devs. Most western devs will just try to make a shooter similar to COD or Gears. This is why we need japanese devs in the industry to prevent it to get stuck around money in the style of Hollywood.

Looks better than I expected. Alot better.

Andriasang has an article that provides pictures and information of the main characters.

Are all the girls supposed to look completely stupid or something?

#38 Posted by groverslanding (948 posts) -

#39 Posted by Wanderer5 (25726 posts) -

This is a Lost Planet game? Interesting, but it looks great.

It is an off-shoot of the series.

I doubt this game will be released outside of Japan. And what's wrong with Japan and their obsession with teenage dudes/gals with superpower pwning evil organizations?

#42 Posted by GamerEye (1670 posts) -

Looks interesting. If it comes to America I'll deffiently be getting it.

It's anime, so looking stupid is one criteria that's need.
#44 Posted by SpinoRaptor24 (10009 posts) -

Not really digging the whole generic anime characters.

It's a fun concept imo. Granted, it's been done before, but that doesn't stop me from being interested in it.

Wrong? You dont like it so its wrong? :?
Japan prefers bubbly, cutesy artstyles and teens overcoming obstacles while America prefers grey, mature games with caucasian, short hair, middle aged men shooting/killing things. To each their own.

Japan can keep this crap. It'll be a PSN game that last for about two hours or less.

The 360 only gets full games! :cool:

#48 Posted by finalfantasy94 (26755 posts) -

Is this like a different universe of lost planet or the same one form 1&2? I will say the game looks entertaining.

Sarcasm? or are you not aware that that XBLA exists? and the fact that this is a full release game and also releasing on 3DS

Yes I am aware of XBLA and most games on it last for more than two hours. ;)
