Lost Planet finds US release date

Capcom's sci-fi shooter is headed to American Xbox 360s; Japan gets it first, with US release following in 2007.


With Dead Rising being pushed back, Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting not yet on Xbox Live Arcade, and Resident Evil 5 well off in the distance, Capcom has yet to release its first next-generation game. That isn't stopping the company from continuing to announce plans for more, however.

Lost Planet, from Onimusha creator Keiji Inafune, was unveiled last December for a late 2006 release in Japan on the Xbox 360. Today, Capcom revealed that Lost Planet will be coming to the United States in the first quarter of 2007.

The game is a science-fiction shooter set on a frigid planet in the outer reaches of space. Humankind's survival is put to the test when indigenous creatures and an invading species threaten to eradicate the humans living on the planet. The game will also be Xbox Live-enabled and will feature several multiplayer modes.

Lost Planet has not yet been rated or priced. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
