Jun Takeuchi is a busy man. “Mr Resident Evil” hadn’t even finished producing the fifth instalment in everyone’s favourite zombie franchise when he announced Lost Planet 2 in an Xbox Live special, promising to trump Extreme Condition in pretty much every way.
The shooter sequel has four-way co-op and some of the stupidest bosses seen in games, and has moved the action from icy cold to the desert and jungle heat. It’s even got a cameo by Dom and Marcus from Gears of War. If it just had dancing ladies, it’d have it all.
Mr Takeuchi was kind enough to talk to us about how big bosses can be (spoiler: infinitely), how the game’s Campaign was originally intended to be a single-player experience and how the idea of a “a complete game” is an “illusion”

Big-time Capcom producer Jun Takeuchi – Lost Planet, Resident Evil 5 – reckons western developers can’t work with Japanese developers thanks to culture.
“The core elements of [Lost Planet 2] were developed in Japan, while the music and some of the language details were handled overseas”, he said in an internal interview.
“Cultural differences don’t allow for the smooth collaboration between Japan and developers overseas.”
Highly progressive thinking there, Jun. Thanks, Kotaku.

According to Capcom, the storyline for the movie based on Lost Planet will be “completely different from the game”.
“[There] probably [won't be] so much of a reference to this particular title [Lost Planet 2],” Lost Planet producer Jun Takeuchi told G4. “However, the only thing I know is those people working on the project that they love the world of Lost Planet.
“So, we know that they’re going to utilize that world, but as far as the story line goes, the movie is completely different from the game.”
David Hayter’s penning the screenplay, and Capcom’s Keiji Inafune has a hand in the project as well.
More over on D’toid.

Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi’s confirmed to Famitsu that the game’s Director’s Cut content will be coming to 360, as reported by IGN.
The title’s new episode, which features around two hours of play, will be made available to 360 owners in a “different form,” according to that piece. You can “expect details in a future update.”
The Director’s Cut – or “Alternative Edition,” as it was shown at TGS recently – has only been seen thus far working with the Sony motion controller.
There’s been no mention as yet of the new content making its way to the game’s PC version.
A 360 version of the content was rumoured yesterday.

Capcom has not decided on a producer for Resident Evil 6 yet, according to RE5 producer Jun Takeuchi.
“The producer for Resident Evil 6 hasn’t been decided yet,” Takeuchi told Kotaku. “I think, while Resident Evil 4 is a great game, its appeal was limited somewhat to maniac players. With RE5, I wanted to bring the series to a larger audience. I think its important to do the same for the next RE.”
Also, while possible, the gaming house has no plans to port RE5 to Wii due to the hardware.
“With the difference between hardware specs for the Wii and the PS3, porting might be hard,” he said. “We currently have no plans.”

Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi has weighed in on the upcoming motion control devices for both Sony and Microsoft, and while he says that the firm is “very receptive to Natal” and looking forward to coming up with games for it, Sony’s motion control is giving developers other ideas.
“I can tell you that we have a lot of good ideas on how to make use of that technology and we’re looking forward to putting them into practice,” Takeuchi told 1UP.
“However, speaking to other developers in Japan, I’ve heard a few of them say they were delighted by the Sony motion controller because they can just port over their Wii titles to the PS3.”

Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi has told Joystiq that they are working on implementing split-screen co-op for the game.
“It’s not easy, but if we are confident that we can do it, we’ll let you know,” said Takeuchi, who was also producer on Resident Evil 5.
He also admitted though that if split-screen was added, some sacrifices were going to be needed.
“Technically, cycling between two split screens, you can actually say it took visual RAM. You still have to work with two sets of AI and physics and so forth at the same time.”

Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi has revealed at Famitsu’s Midnight Live 360 event that a four player co-op demo for the monster-shooter is “coming soon, I guess.”
Whether this means he’s simply speculating that it’s imminent, or the suffix is simply a throwaway comment, remains to be seen.
Lost Planet 2 has no release date as yet but will probably be out for PC and HD consoles sometime in 2010, we guess.

Yeah, well it isn’t. Yet.
“We’re still thinking about it and haven’t announced a PS3 version, so we can’t say more about it just yet,” producer Jun Takeuchi told Gamesradar.
Takeuchi explained the reasoning about revealing the game on Live.
“We wanted to show the game first and foremost to fans of the original Lost Planet,” he added.
“We talked to Microsoft about doing it this way and they were interested in it as well. Also, I think it was a unique and memorable way to announce the game.”
There’s a full interview through there.

Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi has told GameDaily that Capcom’s considering other platforms for Lost Planet 2.
The game’s currently only confirmed for PC and Xbox 360, bt Takeuchi said that the firm is “currently investigating other platforms”.
He also discussed the current economic climate, saying he felt that the game industry is relatively safe despite the naysayers.
“I agree with the theory that the game industry is far less susceptible to the current economic downturn, and the market appears to have proven the theory,” he said.
Good to know.
