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.
