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.
