Lost Planet 2 gets more Capcom characters

Lost Planet 2 is going to be chock-full of hidden characters at this rate. We already knew about Marcus and Dom from Gears of War and Wesker from Resident Evil being given cameo roles, but apparently that's just the tip of a rather large iceberg according to Famitsu, who have loads of shots of the new content. Two characters from Monster Hunter will also feature, although it's unclear at this stage exactly how they'll be split over the game's multiple platform releases. 

Above: That's a pretty big gun. And look at the size of those cartridges!

Thought that was bizarre? How about Frank West (not Fred West like Meiks said earlier) from Dead Rising?

Above: Is that the big bear from Dead Rising strapped to his back?

It's all getting a bit surreal. Quite how a photojournalist has ended up in the scenario with a large stuffed bear is anyone's guess. Well, he has "covered wars, y'know." Kinda.

So where will it all end? If Wesker's in, why not Jill Valentine? Or a welcome return for the 'awesome' Barry Burton? Or how about Dan from the Street Fighter series?

Above: If Wesker's in, then why not Jill?

Who do you think will be in the game? Which unannounced Capcom characters do you think would fit the scenario (not that it seems to matter)? And has Capcom actually gone mad? Let us know in the comments.

    Leon. Leon's awesome. Heck, for kicks, Sheva. Actually, no. I'll probably put the skins on all my teammates, and then Sheva would get shot/eaten/fall in water/do something stupid to get herself killed. Or just stand around. Yup, that happened. On a more serious note, I would like to see (besides leon) Morrigan or Lilith from Darkstalkers. I loved that game. I want to see that again in the near future.

    I dunno about y'all, but I don't care THAT much about Capcom characters. In contrast, if this was a Nintendo game with unrelated Nintendo characters.

    Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Lost Planet 2 Monster Hunter armor is a bit restricted. According to Capcom Unity, the MH Armor is a PS3 exclusive, but further more, it is a JPN exclusive. There isn't word yet if it will be found in NTSC or PAL regions yet.

    I'm excited for West's return to Lost Planet, even more excited that he found clothing this time around.

    Wow! I began thinking this game was going to be kinda lame by the feel of the demo. But now I'm thinking I'll love the cameos so much I'll pick it up for 30 bucks.

    megaman should appear as a blue vs suit, complete with chainsaws. I'm just suprised dante isnt in it already, capcom usually puts him anywhere
  • ventanger - April 16, 2010 2:19 p.m.

    What about Megaman? It's probably the only one that actually makes sense, seeing as he's a super fighting robot after all.

    Okay. My initial reaction to this post are as fallows: Seeing the hunter from Monster Hunter: "Eh. That's pretty cool. Sounds like it's going to be a sub-genre seeing as how as Peace Walker is doing it as well." Seeing Frank West: "Oh sweet. Loved how they brought him back in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Hopefully he might make an appearance in Dead Rising 2." Seeing Wesker: "HOLY SWEET MONKEY MOTHER FU-" and then my head exploded
