Lost Planet 3’s Developer Made Some Pretty Bad Games

News of Lost Planet 3's announcement leaked earlier today, but here are the official screenshots, revealed by publisher Capcom at the Captivate event in Rome earlier this month.

Development studio Spark Unlimited (best known for the poorly-received Turning Point: Fall of Liberty) is helming the title, a prequel to the first Lost Planet game. You'll play a pilot contractor named Jim, swapping between first-person combat in his utility rig and third-person shooting while on foot among the frozen tundra of E.D.N. III.

Capcom says the insectoid Akrid aliens will be back in full force for the third Lost Planet. In addition to fighting those nasty creatures off, you'll have to wade through "an ever changing climate that will affect the way you play," Capcom says.

Lost Planet 3 is slated for Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 in "early 2013".


    Headline says "pretty bad games".

    Article names one.

    Seems a bit mean.

      Spark also made Legendary: The Box.
      That said, I'm interested to see how this pans out.

    I'm interested. Lost Planet is one of my favorite IP's, and Lost Planet 2 was fantastic. Hope they do a good job!

    I'm a bit disappointed they're not using the MT Framework engine, the engine looked great in lost planet 2. Hopefully unreal engine 3 can deliver the same level of beauty.

    I was really disappointed that they went away from the co-op focus. I thought that was a brilliant idea for Lost Planet 2. Kinda like a futuristic Monster Hunter. If they had really expanded on that and evolved it they could of had an awesome game. Now I'm not so sure.
