Lost Planet 3 Announced, Completely Different from Past Games in Series

The Lost Planet series will continue, however it is vastly different from past games. Capcom announced Lost Planet 3 earlier today, and it is a prequel to the series with a heavy emphasis on story. Capcom realized the series was becoming too multiplayer and online focused, so it is handing development to Spark Unlimited. Lost Planet 3 will be a narrative-driven third-person shooter set on the ice planet of EDN III. Since the third game is a prequel, the level of technology is a little limited, so when the Akrid come knocking, all our protagonist Jim and his fellow miners have to defend themselves with are NEVEC rigs. These rigs are equipped with a drill and a claw, so you have a lot less to work with than the mechs from the past games. You can check out the announcement trailer below, while Lost Planet 3 is set to launch early next year for the PC, PS3, and 360.
