Capcom working on split-screen co-op for Lost Planet 2

Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi has revealed that the Lost Planet 2 development team are hoping to incorporate a split-screen co-op mode for the hotly anticipated alien shooter.

Fresh from his experience on action horror romp Resident Evil 5, Takeuchi said told Joystiq: “It’s not easy, but if we are confident that we can do it, we’ll let you know,” though conceded if the feature were implemented, some notable sacrifices would have to be made.

“Technically, cycling between two split screens, you can actually say it took visual RAM. You still have to work with two sets of AI and physics and so forth at the same time.”

Lost Planet 2 is due out on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 later this year. We’ll have more on the game as it breaks.
