It's always nice when a single player game series adds in co-op, a la Resident Evil 5. The latest title to join this trend is Capcom's Lost Planet 2. If killing bugs to harvest thermal goo from their back ends was fun in single player, imagine the possibilities with a buddy to watch your back! Capcom VP Christian Svensson promises that the upcoming third person action game will crank it up to eleven.
Takeuchi’s approach was, you know what we’re not going to sit back on our laurels and just *THERMAL GOO* (ed.) 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.
We're all for over investing as long as one of those investments is co-op. It looks like Capcom really is making co-op a priority, as they promised. I just took advantage of the weekend Steam sale for the original Lost Planet, and look forward to playing it to prepare for the sequel!
