Lost Planet 3 spin-off EX Troopers announced for PS3, Nintendo 3DS

Anime visuals and a school themed story.

Capcom has announced EX Troopers, a Lost Planet 3 spin-off for PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS.

Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Andriasang) describes EX Troopers as an action shooting game being developed by Shintaro Kojima of the Monster Hunter series.

EX Troopers shares the same world view as Lost Planet, but carries an anime visual style and a school themed story. It's about the fight between the snow pirates and Akrid aliens on EDN-3rd. You play Bren Turner, an academy graduate from EDN-2nd.

Other characters include TeeKee, a female snow pirate who can talk to the Akrid, and Gingira, a next generation AI who lives in a Vital Suit. Gingira calls Bren his master.

The story is told through manga demo cut scenes that play out between stages. They're similar to those in PS Vita game Gravity Rush.

Kojima said the game is intended to be an action shooter for beginners. EX Troopers is 60 per cent complete and is out in Japan this year.
