Lost Planet 2 Meets Monster Hunter
PS3 version gets exclusive Monster Hunter costume
PSO will put money on a PS3 Monster Hunter showing up at E3 after this today.
Here's the story:
Xbox 360 owners have Gears of War costumes to look forward to with Capcom's Lost Planet 2. PS3 owners aren't being left out of the exclusivity game.
In Japan today, Capcom announced a PS3-exclusive Monster Hunter costume. Once you have this download content, you'll be able to play Lost Planet 2 using a fully equipped hunter from the Monster Hunter series.
This promotion makes a lot of sense for the PS3. Monster Hunter has become one of Japan's biggest series, with the last PSP entry now over the four million mark in shipments.
This also isn't the first Monster Hunter crossover. A couple of weeks back, Konami announced a Monster Hunter tie-up for Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker. This will place a full Monster Hunter area in the Peace Walker game.
Capcom did not share pricing and release details for the Monster Hunter costume.
PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will have some shared costumes, including a Wesker costume from Resident Evil 5 and a Frank West costume from Dead Rising.
