Thanks to the USK German video games ratings board (Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle
or USK) we may have un-earthed proof that Capcom's Lost Planet
franchise is not dead.
Xbox-Archiv stumbled across an entry for a game called Lost Planet Colonies
over on the USK website
that was reviewed
this past July
today. Instantly, thoughts of a Lost Planet
bug splattering sequel raced in our heads when we heard the news and after visiting the USK site, we were pleasantly surprised. The Lost Planet Colonies
entry lists the game to be a third person shooter (yes!) and solely on the Xbox 360 (double yes!) Adding more proof to the Lost Planet
sequel fire is the fact that the game is published by CEG Interactive Entertainment, a German subsidiary
of (you guessed it) Capcom. We've heard lots of whispers of a Lost Planet
sequel this year, but nothing has surfaced to be this concrete. Here's to Lost Planet Colonies
becoming a reality and being an amazing sequel.
