Lost Planet 3 is a real thing. The sequel, unveiled at Captivate, shows Spark Unlimited is developing the game for an early 2013 launch on PS3 and 360.

Lost Planet 3’s rebooted logo.

Capcom is set to launch Lost Planet 3 early next year, the publisher announced in Rome last week at Captivate. The game’s debut video got out ahead of a general 4pm embargo this afternoon.

The trailer begins with a man named Jim running from a creature chasing after him in a station of some sorts. The pair then emerge to the series’s traditional snowy environment, where a standoff brews between the two.

jim shoots the creature chasing after him, but comes across a second monster. He has run of ammo and legs it to find a frozen mech, which emerges after being ‘awoken’.

Bleeding from his earlier encounter, Jim gets into the mech and sees the second enemy run away. A bigger monster then appears to take on the mech, but is eventually taken down.

A storm is then approaching on the horizon, to which the man in the mech escapes from. The game’s new logo then appears and confirms a 2013 launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Spark Unlimited, who did Legendary: The Box and Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, is developing the game. The past two games have been made internally at Capcom in 2006 and 2010 respectively for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. A PC SKU for LP3 wasn’t mentioned in the trailer.
