‘Lost Planet 2’ — welcome to the jungle

Lost Planet 2 from Capcom

Capcom this week revealed its promised big “surprise”: Lost Planet 2 for the Xbox 360. The public announcement came today following an exclusive announcement Monday for Xbox LIVE members.

The new game will feature four-player cooperative play, new interlinked episodes and deep customization. Capcom says Lost Planet 2 integrates considerable community feedback from its predecessor while retaining its strongest features.

The story picks up 10 years after the events of the original adventure, and the landscape has evolved dramatically. With the success of terraforming activities, the planet’s ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and other new environments. The story has advanced beyond Wayne Holden, though, as players will now follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirates on their quest to seize control of E.D.N III.

Interestingly, as Kotaku points out, the Capcom announcement doesn’t go so far as to say that the game is an Xbox 360 exclusive — just that it’s being developed for that system.
