Just a week after it announced its latest project as Lost Planet 3 from Capcom, Spark Unlimited has posted job listings for a “bold new take” on a “established” third-person console franchise.

One listing on Gama for its lead combat designer said the game would be a a third-person action slasher with horror elements.

The listing asks for an “understanding in sword fighting combat tactics, martial arts and weapons,” adding that experience in Unreal 3 with at least one shipped game is a preferance, suggesting UE3 could be used for the title.

A second listing suggests multiplayer or co-op for the game.

Other listings include for lead designer, senior designer and character animator.

Spark confirmed last week it was working on Lost Planet 3 for an early 2013 release on PS3, 360 and PC.

Thanks, GAF.
