Monster Hunter in Lost Planet 2 PS3

Plus: Frank West is back!

Capcom has revealed more playable guest stars for Lost Planet 2: Dead Rising's Frank West, and a splendidly armoured hunter from the Monster Hunter games.

The Monster Hunter will be exclusive to PS3 owners of the game, just as Gears of War's Marcus and Dom will be available to Xbox 360 owners.

Owners of both platforms can enjoy the much-petitioned return of Dead Rising's insouciant hero Frank West, even if it's not in his own game series. He has a giant teddy bear on his back, obviously. West joins fellow Capcom star Albert Wesker from the Resident Evil series.

IGN has shots and details.

Lost Planet 2 is out stupidly soon: it has its global launch on 11th May. "It's pretty clear that Takeuchi and company have come up with something very special," said Kristan in his recent Lost Planet 2 hands on. "With a campaign mode that has the potential to become one of the most essential co-op games ever made, and hugely entertaining VS-based multiplayer insanity to indulge in, Lost Planet 2 is a sign of Capcom getting back to its best."
