Speaking at the Capcom E3 press conference yesterday, Capcom head of research and development and online business Keiji Inafune said that Lost Planet was always intended for the big screen, writes 1UP.

“Inafune went so far as to say that the company’s original goal when developing Lost Planet was “to create a game that would become a Hollywood movie,” complete with bringing the massive- robot genre out of Japan and into Hollywood,” says the piece.

The press conference’s main focus was indeed solely geared toward the Lost Planet movie and, strangely, no other games were mentioned at all.
