Capcom's upcoming E.X. Troopers is super bright and crazy

File this one under 'not what I was expecting'. Capcom recently announced they were working on a Lost Planet spin off of sorts called E.X. Troopers. The initial scans that were floating around revealed a bright and colorful anime-inspired look that didn't at all mesh with the other three games in the series. Adding to the strangeness of it all is the fact that the game is reportedly scheduled to release on the PS3 and 3DS. Wait, what?

Needless to say my confusion was shared by plenty of other people... until Capcom released a trailer for the game. 

My first thought was that they're using the engine they initially made for the now canceled Mega Man Legends 3. E.X. Troopers has a anime/manga edge to it filled with crazy characters, giant monsters, guns and all sorts of ridiculousness. There's been no word yet as to what platform the footage is from, but I'd be willing to bet it's the 3DS version. I'm just wondering if this is going to be a purely single player affair, especially when you consider that Lost Planet 2 was all about the multiplayer action.

Check out the insanity after the break.
