We could have easily gone for a more vulgar headline! Here's what Christian Svensson, Capcom's vice president of business development and strategic planning, actually said about the upcoming co-op
shooter, Lost Planet 2
: "Takeuchi's approach was, you know what we're not going to sit back on our laurels and just shit out a sequel, we're actually going to take it up five notches. We're not going to under invest in this, we're actually going to over invest in this, and we're going to build it bigger."
Speaking to VideoGamer.com
, Svensson relayed Lost Planet 2
(and Resident Evil 5
) producer Jun Takeuchi's overall vision as being one that keeps all of the original's best qualities in
, while dismissing the lax ambitions of lazy sequel design. You might even catch a whiff of 2007's critically acclaimed Call of Duty 4
, which Svensson says was a big hit among the Lost Planet
team. "So I think you're going to see some influence from that sneaking in."
So, to sum all this crap up: Lost Planet 2
is promised to be the
shit, but won't be shit
