Capcom announces E.X. Troopers for PS3, 3DS

New shooter headed by Monster Hunter producer.

Capcom’s mysterious project teased in Famitsu last month is revealed in this week’s issue as E.X. Troopers for PlayStation 3 and 3DS.

The game is an action shooter headed by Monster Hunter series producer Shintaro Kojima. J-Pop artist May’n is behind the theme song. The game shares the same world view of Lost Planet, but features a graphic animation style and school story. It is similar in atmosphere to a science fiction version of Capcom’s Rival Schools. Between stages, the game will use a “manga demo” style of storytelling, similar to that seen in Gravity Rush. The magazine shows a character named Teekee.

In November last year, Capcom trademarked E.X. Troopers in the U.S., which might signal it’s coming stateside.
