Lost Planet 3 developer working on mysterious reboot – report

Thursday, 23rd August 2012 01:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Lost Planet 3 developer Spark Unlimited is working on something pretty mysterious, according to Superannuation’s regular column on Kotaku. A number of clues suggest the team has “a bold new take on 3rd Person Action/Horror based on an established console franchise” in the works. The Unreal Engine-based “action/slasher” will have a multiplayer component. Capcom has denied it has anything to do with it – so not Onimusha, then, but I put a picture on anyway because I’m kind of mean like that. Thoughts? Theories?

    It is the strategy of letting the cow rest for years only to get milked for longer years.

    Seriously, I think that they learned their lesson when Takashi screwed RE5 for them. I think they are just waiting for a director/studio that can revitalize the series.

    @1: There is a new Onimusha, dude, but it’s a webgame and for Japanese only! Stupid game! ;)

    @2 Isn’t RE5 the best selling RE game?

    Could be Alone in the Dark if they’re saying it’s not a Capcom joint, trying to think of horror games with combat elements.

    I just really hope it is a Capcom reboot and that it is Onimusha, that series was badass. Started playing the orignal again recently. Still brilliant. The combat mechanic and parries were outstanding at the time.

    Wow, had forgot about that franchise! Didn’t one title star Jean Reno?!

    I really would love to see another title next gen or even a HD remaster, great series!
