More Lost Planet 3 Info, Including A New (Delayed) Release Date
I’ll be dead honest with you; I’m next exactly jumping out of my seat when I hear about the new Lost Planet 3. While the first entry did enough to entertain me throughout the narrative, the second was a complete mess, and there’s hasn’t bee enough shown of the third to suggest it’s going to be any better.
Yesterday Capcom broke the long silence that has hung over Lost Planet 3, revealing some new details about the game’s protagonist, the story and the official box-art. Oh, they also announced a delay to the game’s release date, with Lost Planet 3 now only set to release on the 25th of June.

On the topic of Lost Planet 3’s protagonist, Capcom essentially revealed the premise of the new narrative, and why main character Jim Peyton, a Utility Rig pilot for NEVEC, or Neo-Venus Construction, will be fighting alongside the Snow Pirates on planet E.D.N. III.
“While under attack from E.D.N. III’s indigenous Akrid, Jim’s Utility Rig falls 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 So’ichi (the Snow Pirate leader), he soon realizes that NEVEC are no longer the only occupants of E.D.N. III. With this encounter with the Snow Pirates new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history are set to be unveiled.”

I’m not entirely concerned with Lost Planet 3’s narrative though, because it’s never been a strong point for the series. What I would like to see, and I’m sure most of you can agree with me here, is a trailer or walkthrough showing a considerable upgrade to combat, which was sometimes severely broken in the previous entry. Come on Capcom, stop holding those cards so damn close to your chest.
