Lost Planet 3 pushed back to August

Lost Planet 3 has been delayed from late June to late August. The chilly prequel to the bug-blasting series will now arrive on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August 27 in the U.S. and August 30 in Europe.

Capcom told CVG that unspecified "business reasons" led to the two-month delay. The June release dates were revealed just last month.

E.D.N. III is coming out of a harsh ice age in the time of protagonist Jim, a rig suit pilot trying to support his family back home by hauling minerals.

Turns out the insectoid akrid weren't great fans of humans tearing up their planet even back then, though, and Jim has to fight for his life against the horde in rig and on foot. Series fans should expect the game to handle a bit differently, since development duties were handed over to Western studio Spark Unlimited.

Check out our gameplay demo from Tokyo Game Show to get a feel for the new bug hunt while we wait out the delay.

    I like think that at somepoint into the development of the games that Capcom somehow managed to accidentally switch the copy of the code of the game they were working on from Lost Planet 3 to Dead Space 3 and EA accidentally swapped the code for Dead Space 3 with Lost Planet 3, then when they finally figure out their mistake both of the companies decided to just roll with it. I will say though that I'm a lot more interested in seeing how this turns out than Dead Space 3.

    And zero tears were shed over this.
