Lost Planet spin-off E.X. Troopers not launching in West – Capcom

By Dave Cook, Tuesday, 11 September 2012 11:44 GMT

E.X. Troopers is a Lost Planet spin-off that takes an all-out action perspective on the franchise, along with colourful anime visuals. It looks interesting, but the 3DS game won’t be coming out in the West any time soon, developer Capcom has said.

Originally reported by Nintendo Life, Capcom held an ‘ask us anything’ session over on its official site, fielding questions on the shooter.

Capcom’s corporate officer and senior VP Christian Svensson responded to a question about E.X. Troopers hitting the West, and replied, “No because EX Troopers isn’t part of the LP series officially (thus the difference in name) nor are there plans to bring it Westward at this time.”

E.X. Troopers will launch on 3DS in Japan November 22nd. Here’s a trailer:
