Remember when Square almost exploded into coins after Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within vomited all over the big screen? Well, this isn’t really like that – mostly because Capcom has licensed Lost Planet out to a third-party. But still. $150-$200 million.
The information was confirmed by Capcom Head of Character Content Business Toshihiro Tokumaru during a PR interview.
To put that amount in perspective, The Dark Knight pocketed 185 million of ol’ Uncle Warner’s dollars before slipping into theaters.
It is, however, unconfirmed as to whether or not this much money exists. Nobody’s ever seen it all in one place; we asked everyone. As such, we remain skeptical.

In a lengthy interview with 1UP, Microsoft head Shane Kim said that the capture of Final Fantasy XIII should unlock many doors in Japan.
“Well, the Final Fantasy XIII announcement has some beneficial side-effects,” said Kim.
“The more games of this nature, and of the Devil May Crys and Resident Evils, that we secure on 360 opens doors for us in Japan, and gets developers over there interested in the 360, so it’s a step-by-step process.
“Take Capcom for example: they took a chance with us with Dead Rising and Lost Planet, and have had great success, with both of those titles selling over a million units each,” he continued.
“Japan is obviously a very unique market to crack and gain support in, but I think we’re making good headway with what we’ve accomplished on 360 so far, and we’ll continue to surprise you.”

Speaking at the Capcom E3 press conference yesterday, Capcom head of research and development and online business Keiji Inafune said that Lost Planet was always intended for the big screen, writes 1UP.
“Inafune went so far as to say that the company’s original goal when developing Lost Planet was “to create a game that would become a Hollywood movie,” complete with bringing the massive- robot genre out of Japan and into Hollywood,” says the piece.
The press conference’s main focus was indeed solely geared toward the Lost Planet movie and, strangely, no other games were mentioned at all.
