Lost Planet 3 will be released in the first quarter of 2013, Capcom has confirmed when detailing its plans for the current fiscal year.

LP3 take the series back to its roots, returning to E.D.N. III, a dynamic battlefield that's more dangerous than ever before with an ever changing climate that promises to affect the way you play. Development has been moved to Unreal Engine 3 and will blend first-person mech combat with third-person gunplay on foot.

The third game in the action series joins Dragon's Dogma, DmC Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 6 all hitting stores between now and March 31, 2013.

Dragon's Dogma will launch May 25, Resident Evil 6 has been moved to October 2 and DmC will arrive later this year.

Commenting on the date change for Resident Evil 6, Capcom said: "The use of an efficient development environment reduced the time needed to create this new title. As a result, Capcom made the decision to launch "Resident Evil 6" earlier than originally planned."

Capcom says it also has "plans to introduce a number of other significant titles".

Nice one. I'll keep an eye out for the SE then.

Edit:
It appears that the Colonies Edition didn't make onto the PS3.

I really enjoyed Lost Planet, the Colonies Edition is even better, but it is quite an old-school affair. The sequel is potentially magnificent, but is a little bit spoiled by a need to co-op in certain sections. The AI are just not up to the task. However, there is lots to love about it, particularly the bite-sized nature of the individual levels. Rather than long slogs through insanely huge jungles, it splits it up into sub-missions which keeps it racing along.

You can probably pick them both up for less than £10. I would certainly give the first one a go, but tread carefully with the second.

I haven't actually played either of the Lost Planet games. Are they worth picking up and having a play still?
