3DS Lost Planet spin-off E.X. Troopers won't be released outside of Japan

A world of disappointment

Product: E.X. Troopers | Publisher: Capcom
For: 3DS

Capcom has no plans to localise Lost Planet's 3DS spin-off E.X. Troopers outside of Japan.

That's the word from Christian Svensson, Capcom's senior vice president, who answered a fan's question on the company's Ask Capcom forum. He said there are no "plans to bring it Westward at this time".

E.X. Troopers is a colourful anime-inspired game with manga cut-scenes and teenage characters. It's a far cry from the gritty trilogy of snow-topped shooters on Xbox 360 and PS3.

According to Lost Planet executive producer Kenji Ohguro, E.X. Troopers was a way to shove the "festival atmosphere" and "ridiculous scenarios" of Lost Planet 2 into a more suitably styled game and focus on serious storytelling in the franchise's third outing.

Fans assumed the game would be translated into English when Capcom trademarked the name in the US and Europe in 2011. Sadly, it looks like it's the latest game to lose out on localisation.

E.X. Troopers, and its six-player co-op battle mode, will be shown off at Tokyo Game Show later this month. The game will launch on 3DS (and PS3) on November 22nd.

@Acteon I freaking HATE Capcom. I'm still fuming over the way they handled Mega Man Legends 3 before outright cancelling anyway. Requiring 3DS owners to pay for a MML3 demo to, as they said, gauge the overall mood for the game? Mega Man is arguably Capcom's #1 mascot and this is how they treat him and the fans... Their other big franchise Resident Evil, they've been mishandling that series lately as well imo. I just couldn't shake Operation Raccoon City being a wannabe Left 4 Dead. And now this. They're tanking imo because their games aren't even all that great but then they open up subsidiaries like Beeline Interactive to make freemium shovelware like Smurfs' Village and Snoopy's Street Fair.

Allow me, I'll be at TGS to register my objection with a bat... Bloody region locked system won't allow importing either. If only they'd put it out on Vita :(

PS3 version it is then.
