Lost Planet 2 gets Dead Rising and Monster Hunter characters

Famitsu has revealed through some screenshots that Lost Planet 2 is getting more than just Wesker, Dom and Marcus.

Those are so yesterday anyway. How about some Frank West from Dead Rising and the “Scaly Knife-Gun Dude”, as Joystiq calls him, from Monster Hunter?

So far, here is the rundown in case you are getting a bit confused, because we sure as hell are:

  • Marcus and Dom – 360 version only
  • Scaly Monster Hunter Dude – PS3 only
  • Wesker and other Monster Hunter Dude – all versions

We’ll contact Capcom just to be sure.

Looking at the screenshot there, it looks like it’s going to be a blustery day for poor, old Pooh-bear.

Lost Planet 2 hits May 18 for PS3 and Xbox 360, and will include split-screen co-op.

    Since it had 3 games on the PS2 and 3 on the PSP before the Wii port and MH Tri was released.

    And how exactly are we meant to get these characters? Will they just be included on the disc?

    i don´t know…after playing all the demos i must say some of the new charakters i found there (some big boobs female ones, and some stupid tough guy ones) were a big turn off for me. i loved the art design of the first one – i got the strange feeling that they kind of killed the vibe of the first game and that would be a shame. i always thought lost planet 2 would be a day one closed eyes buy for me…but i think i´ll have to wait for reviews and some more gameplay footage- right now i´m not really impressed – feels more like they made exactly the choices i didn´t wanted to be made…
