Here's a batch of new
screens (via Siliconera) for Lost Planet 3, Capcom's return to the snowy sci-fi series
it began in 2006. This title, as revealed in our Lost Planet 3 first-look, serves as a prequel to the first game, which is a good
excuse for new protagonist Jim Peyton to be doubly surprised when all
the game's nightmarish Lovecraftian spider-turtle-lamprey things come
haring after him.
Last year brought, via an
“EA insider,” a report: EA looking to branch Dead Space out
beyond the numbered series - whose third installment is underway and
set to take place on a freezing ice-world full of freaky
nightmare-creatures. Much like these glimpses of Lost Planet 3, then,
which is looking to incorporate more of Capcom's signature survival
horror than previous installments.
Can the gaming world possibly
withstand two titles that are kind of like futuristic versions of The
Thing? Yes, yes it probably can – but it'll still be interesting to
see how the titles distinguish themselves. Hopefully straws have been
drawn to see which title gets to include zombies.
