What Are Gears Of War Characters Doing In My Lost Planet 2?

In a collaboration with Capcom, American game developer Epic is lending Gears of War main characters Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago to Lost Planet 2.

The appearance of both characters was revealed in a trailer shown today at Xbox Japan's Capcom event.

It is believed that the characters will be available as exclusive downloadable characters for the Xbox 360 and will not be appearing in the game's story mode.

Lost Planet 2 designer Jun Takeuchi has long professed his admiration for Gears of War. The controls for Resident Evil 5 were influenced by the controls for Gears of War.

    That's pretty goddamn cool. I love seeing stuff like this happen.

    How about a spoiler warning just for the article title?

      Since when where alternate costumes/characters considered spoilers. Sure, it hasn't been confirmed they won't be in the story, but I find it extremely unlikely that they'll try to fit Them in there. DLC or preorder bonus is my guess.

    I've always thought of them to somewhat similar. With the creatures/monsters and all and some of the settings.

    Good idea i say!

    "The controls for Resident Evil 5 were influenced by the controls for Gears of War."

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. This was obviously intended as an insult... RE5 controls were some of the worst in any game I've ever played, let alone in this console generation.

    first UC2 then this

    IMO its pretty cool this cross-promotion
