Looks like that super cool looking Lost Planet spinoff, EX Troopers, is hitting Japanese store shelves sooner than I had initially thought. Capcom's manga/anime inspired action game will be available for purchase on November 22 of this year, with the 3DS version costing you 5,990 Yen and the PS3 one running you 6,990 Yen. Yeah, it'll cost you a pretty penny.
I'd be lying if I said that the higher price didn't have me a bit concerned. EX Troopers may technically be a part of the Lost Planet series, but it's still something of a new franchise. A game like this is already facing an uphill struggle and I can't see the price helping any. I'll still be grabbing a copy of the 3DS version when it hits, but my fingers are crossed that Capcom hasn't made a mistake here.
