Lost Planet 2 gets more Capcom characters

Lost Planet 2 is going to be chock-full of hidden characters at this rate. We already knew about Marcus and Dom from Gears of War and Wesker from Resident Evil being given cameo roles, but apparently that's just the tip of arather large iceberg according to Famitsu, who haveloads of shotsof the new content. Two characters from Monster Hunter will also feature, although it's unclear at this stage exactly how they'll be split over the game's multiple platform releases.

Above: That's a pretty big gun. And look at the size of those cartridges!

Thought that was bizarre? How about Frank West (not Fred West like Meiks said earlier)from Dead Rising?

It's all getting a bit surreal. Quite how a photojournalist has ended up in the scenario with a large stuffed bear is anyone's guess. Well, he has "covered wars, y'know."Kinda.

So where will it all end? If Wesker's in, why not Jill Valentine? Or a welcome return for the 'awesome' Barry Burton? Or how about Dan from the Street Fighter series?

Who do you think will be in the game? Which unannounced Capcom characters do you think would fit the scenario (not that it seems to matter)? And has Capcom actually gone mad? Let us know in the comments.
