Lost Planet 2 screens, details and more

Sequels are kind of Capcom’s thing, no? In the past year, we’ve seen Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5, Commando 3, Mega Man 9, plus the recently announced Dead Rising 2. No surprise then that Lost Planet 2 is also on the way, recently announced on Xbox Marketplace with a full trailer and brief interview with Jun Takeuchi, producer of Lost Planet 2.

Today, we can announce a pretty hefty barrage of Lost Planet 2 information, coming first from our friends at Official Xbox Magazine (US and UK), in the form of hands-on cover stories:

Above: OXM US, on sale April 7. Subscribers get it next week.
OXM UK, meanwhile, hits stands on April 9.

Also on April 7, you can check back on GamesRadar for interviews with both Takeuchi-san and Lost Planet 2’s director, Kenji Oguro, plus our own appraisal of the game’s four-player co-op, the new environments and a certain six-legged creature seen stomping around the trailer.

    I'm only making a comment because of the reCaptcha. reCaptcha: 1939 Ruland (What the hell happened in Ruland? Was that Hilter's first place to attack? Poor Rulandians...) Turns out Ruland(tm) makes couplings and the like. They probably made tanks for the big H.

    Palm trees in Lost Planet 2 ?!?!?!? After they thawed out the planet in the first one?? How odd? I hope the story line is better than "Hey the planet is tropical, now go fight HOT AKRID that evolved fast." and then the inevitable "Hot planet new monsters to fight, now they spill blue shit that is coolent." I know the Capcom made the story on the first one great so I exect the second to be up to par. Nice on Brett.
