Capcom announced today that they have firmed up the release date for the next game in the Lost Planet series across North America on June 25th. Coupled with the release date announcement is a brand new trailer for the game as well as a ton of new photos (links to those below).
The trailer continues the story of Jim Peyton’s time on E.D.N. III as a NEVEC employee seeking out further sources of the planet’s energy supply T-Eng. During one of these missions, Jim comes under attack from E.D.N. III’s indigenous Akrid, causing his Utility Rig to fall down an icy fissure, leaving him unconscious and injured. Jim wakes to find himself in what appears to be a secret base, hidden beneath the planet’s frozen surface. On discovering he was rescued by one of the base’s inhabitants, Mira, the daughter of Snow Pirate leader, So’ichi, Jim realizes that NEVEC are not the only human inhabitants of E.D.N. III.
Will the Snow Pirates welcome NEVEC or will Jim have to face yet another hostile force on E.D.N. III?
The game will be available for pre-order with an exclusive pre-order bonus, including a guest appearance by Hunk from the Resident Evil franchise. Lost Planet 3 will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The game will be available in Europe on June 28th.
