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.
