Capcom has staple-gunned a western release date to Lost Planet 3, confirming the game will launch in North America on June 25 and in Europe on June 28.
Due out on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360, Lost Planet 3 is currently in development at Spark Unlimited, and is set long before the events depicted in the original sci-fi actioner.
In this prequel, gamers follow NEVEC employee Jim Peyton as they embark on a story-based adventure that eschews the co-op, action-focused antics of Lost Planet 2. Instead, you’ll find yourself exploring areas, picking up side quests and interacting with NPCs while battling against the indigenous Akrids.
Lost Planet 3 was originally due out in early 2013. Stay tuned for more information as we get it.
