Speaking with NowGamer, Capcom explain why the hell they chose a developer not know for paricularly great games to partner with them to create Lost Planet 3...
Hugely surprised they moved this out of Japan, but other than RE, it's probably one of their most action-oriented franchises. TP:liberty and Legendary certainly have plus points, but they're not hugely promising. Reckon Spark could come good with LP3 though...
"Turning Point Dev Chosen For 'Passion & Ability' - Capcom" Translation: turning point dev chosen because it was the cheapest deal we could have.
IGN have been singing Lost Planet 3's praises, they stated that the demo shown to them was innovative, creative, and brilliant and claimed that it is already looking to be one of the best games of 2013. They haven't had the budget of a Capcom title before and with the original Lost Planet development squad helping them the game is sounding magnificent.
Legendary and turning point were a shining examples of good ideas but not executed very well. Hopefully they prove me wrong because I love the lost planet series.
They certainly have a passion and ability for making abysmal games.
Quote from IGN (Who have actually seen the game): "Atmospheric, innovative and completely unexpected, Lost Planet 3 has catapulted itself onto the list of games to watch for 2013 on the strength of a single demo." Even I'm surprised but I'm glad to hear they've proven themselves capable of developing both a good game and this sequel.
dude its IGN, nobody gives a fuck what they think. because most of what they do or say is bullshit to gamers anyways.
@DrPepper Grow up kid. @Kingdom Come It definetely sounds promising and IGN usually isnt afraid to trash a game if its no good so im looking forward to seeing more from this title.
This definite feels like Capcom struck a deal with them they just couldn't pass on... I have no idea how or why but something Spark showed or pushed to Capcom told them this could work.
I Just want the focus to be on the Single player campaign like the first game!Im certain it will be better than the crap Lost Planet 2 was,but if they can get this new game to the same status or higher the first one had when was released on the 360 than im happy!
Turning Point and Legendary where fine games. LOTS of factors go into a games success (or failure) how many triple A games don't make it? How many is the reverse? I'll side with Crapcon on this one, give me someone with ability any day over someone that "thinks" they got it like that. Say like Square-Enix.
Looks like Crapcom are picking up cheap devs who need a 2nd, 3rd and 4th chance. Cut costs and milk the franchises seems to be the business plan.
Hmm, Not sure how i feel about the quite massive change to the franchise. Westernization i guess is the word, and i have very mixed feelings about how this will affect the game.
Good I say. Lost Planet has HUGE potential, Capcom has failed twice to make a meaningful story to create a great backstory to immerse players in. The whole mechs vs monsters mixed with infantry combat in the snowy, desolate terrain was fun to play in during LP1, but I always had at the back of my head the entire time "Man, if a good dev had this IP, a simple backstory would really push this game oout there".
Holy f*ck this series is doomed. Though not the strongest storylines, I've always immensely enjoyed the Lost Planet series. The gameplay has always been sound, so I have no clue why they are outsourcing development to another western developer that is just going to make a lame sequel (Dead Rising 2, Raccoon City, etc.).
