Capcom has confirmed a Lost Planet 3 release date of June 26 in North America, June 27 in Japan and June 28 in Europe.

The publisher has also released a new batch of screenshots alongside images of the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC game’s box art, which you can see above.

The open-world sci-fi shooter is a prequel which promises to reveal new truths about the history of the series' icy planet E.D.N. III. Players take on the role of Jim, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract with a construction firm preparing the planet for colonisation. It’s his job to survey treacherous uncharted terrain and obtain samples of the planet’s energy supply while dealing with the threat of the indigenous Akrid, a hideous race of reptilian insectoids.

Watch us strap ourselves into Jim’s rig (giant robot) and drill some holes in alien bugs in this Lost Planet 3 gameplay footage from last year’s Tokyo Game Show. And find out more about the game in this first-look Lost Planet 3 preview.

    Does anyone really even like Lost Planet? I bought and sold Lost Planet 2 within 2 weeks time..

    They've made 3 games of it now, and you're asking if anyone actually likes them? You should think on this.

    Wait, this is also coming in June? Capcom recently announced that Remember Me would ALSO come out in June... Which is weird, why would you willingly put two of your biggest game releases on the same month, and possibly competing against each other? Last time I checked, Capcom did the same thing by putting both Dragon's Dogma and Asura's Wrath in the same month... And while Dragon's Dogma did well, Asura suffered for it >>;

    That is strange indeed.

    Looking forward to this, I've loved both so far. Hoping this is more good fun
