Lost Planet 2, SSFIV get release dates

Plus: Monster Hunter Tri due in April.

Capcom has announced a whole bundle of release dates for its forthcoming titles.

First up is Lost Planet 2, which will launch in Europe and North America on 18th May. The game is in development for PS3 and Xbox 360 and will feature six interconnected episodes, "creating a truly unique interactive experience that changes depending upon the actions of the players involved", according to Capcom. You'll be able to team up with a maximum of three other players and fight the good fight over Xbox Live and PSN.

Speaking of which, Super Street Fighter IV will be coming to Europe on 30th April, also on PS3 and 360. The US will get it three days earlier. Expect new online modes, combos and characters, including Tae Kwon Do specialist Juri.

There's another treat in store for beat-em-up fans with Final Fight: Double Impact, a dual release of two classic arcade side-scrollers for PSN and XBLA. In the Final Fight, Cody Guy and Haggar must trek across Metro City to face off with the evil Mad Gear. Magic Sword has more of a fantasy bent and sees you taking on dark lord Drokmar with eight allies. An exact date has yet to be locked down, but at least Capcom is talking "spring" for the pair of them.

Meanwhile Monster Hunter Tri, already a big hit with Wii owners in Japan, will arrive in Europe this April. Four-player online co-op is promised along with two player co-op arena quests, and there's a story mode which should help new players get to grips with it all. You can choose from a range of control schemes, too.
