Lost Planet is set to return to our consoles towards the end of June 2013 and apparently as described by Capcom “harsher than ever before”.
The trailer released today to announce the news continues the story of Jim Peyton’s time on E.D.N. III as a NEVEC employee seeking out further sources of the planet’s energy supply T-Eng. During one of these missions, Jim comes under attack from E.D.N. III’s indigenous Akrid, causing his Utility Rig to fall down an icy fissure, leaving him unconscious and injured. Jim wakes to find himself in what appears to be a secret base, hidden beneath the planet’s frozen surface. On discovering he was rescued by one of the base’s inhabitants, Mira, the daughter of Snow Pirate leader, So’ichi, Jim realizes that NEVEC are not the only human inhabitants of E.D.N. III.
Will the Snow Pirates welcome NEVEC or will Jim have to face yet another hostile force on E.D.N. III?
