Marcus and Dom from Gears of War to appear in Lost Planet 2

Tuesday, 26th January 2010 10:14 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Capcom’s announced it’s bringing over Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago from Gears of War to Lost Planet 2.

The news was announced during a joint event with Microsoft in Japan this morning.

This could be the “kick ass news”  Gears of War lead designer Cliff Bleszinski might have been referring to.

Earlier, the shooter was dated for a worldwide release on May 18 for PS3 and 360, except for Japan.

The company’s Japanese arm confirmed in a press release it will be releasing on May 20 in the country.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Seems as if MS and Capcom have been doing some deals together, what with Monster Hunter Frontiers and this (what i’d guess is) exclusive DLC for the 360 version of LP2.

    I hope this isn’t the “kick ass news”. Because if it is I’ll need to send Cliff a new dictionary with a better definition of “kick ass”.

    Maybe what he meant Blerk, is that after this news, we will hunt him down and kick *his* ass :lol:

    Now, if he’d announced proper Gears of War controls for Resi 5 Gold… that would’ve been kick ass news.

    That would be awesome however wont happen…

    Everyone knows in order to be a character in the Resi universe you need to have an inability to move and fire, no matter how close enemies get, its either hold your ground or run away and repeat! :P

    Capcom isn’t doing shit specific for the PS3, they just married MS. Apparently you missed the wedding. Their wedding was full of green, Xs and dollar bills everywhere.

    “Now, if he’d announced proper Gears of War controls for Resi 5 Gold… that would’ve been kick ass news.”

    Why the hell would you want a horror game, that’s supposed to create frustration, confusion, and suspense, to play like an adrenalin obsessed third-person shooter?

    Because Capcom turned Resi into a third person shooter? Or half did, anyway.

    You know… I I think I’d take that over the abortion that was RE5′s controls.

    I think it’s all those steroids that Chris was obviously taking that removed his ability to walk properly. It’s a horror game about drug abuse.

    Oh, I love the VG247 community! Fewer obnoxious fanboys, and people with a light-heart and good wit.

    PS: I think the controls were the least of RE5′s problems. *coughs* Takeuchi *coughs*

    Don’t you all miss the brilliance that is Shinji Mikami?
