While it was speculated for a few months now, Capcom has made it official that Lost Planet 3 will be coming to your console next year. While Lost Planet 2 took place in a jungle environment, the third entry in the series will return to the frozen areas that started the series off.
Lost Planet 3 will be developed by Spark Unlimited who you may remember developed the delightful, sarcasm intended, title by the name of Turning Point: Fall of Liberty. While one title doesn’t ruin a developer, it surely is remembered when they’re looking to work on an upcoming game.
In Lost Planet 3, you’ll assume the role of the protagonist by the name of Jim. Jim will be in a frozen environment that has a climate that is constantly changing that will “affect the way you play”. The Akrid aliens will also make a return in the third title as the main aliens that you fight against. However, Lost Planet 3 has been listed a prequel to the series.
