Famitsu’s unveiled EX Troopers in its new issue this week for 3DS and PS3 as a spin-off to Lost Planet.

The game, which was trademarked at the end of last year, will take place at a school academy of sorts featuring the fight between pirates and Akrid aliens on EDN-3rd.

It’ll also feature an anime look to it and, though it’s set in the world of Lost Planet, with Capcom hoping that players see it as a new title rather than a spin-off.

The game will be produced by Monster Hunter veteran Shintaro Kojima.

It’ll be playable at the end of next month at the Capcom Summer Jam in Japan. Development is 60% finished.

Andriasang has more details. Capcom is set to release Lost Planet 3 for PS3, 360 and PC early next year.
