Sorry Lost Planet Fans, EX Troopers Isn't Coming To The West

Originally Posted by NintendoLife

The forum member's original question actually related to the thorny issue of the Mega Man series, and a recent comment by Svensson that he feels the franchise has too many 'sub series'. To counter this argument, the forum poster mentioned EX Troopers based on the fact that it's a sub series of Lost Planet, seemingly making the assumption that the game would be heading out of Japan.

Svensson's response was:

No because EX Troopers isn't part of the LP series officially (thus the difference in name) nor are there plans to bring it Westward at this time.
So there you have it - Capcom isn't looking to translate and publish EX Troopers outside of its native Japan, where it launches on November 22nd of this year.

...so are Capcom in the West just going to be playing with their boogers after Resident Evil 6 ships, or what?

He didn't confirm anything. He just said there aren't plans right now.

Edit: I don't think the game will be released in the West, by the way.

And I know you weren't the one who created the title, Andrex.

If it was coming, it would've already been announced. The fact that it was announced weeks after Captivate kind of was a death sentence.

I'm trying to envision a scenario in which that would change. Short of an Operation Rainfall-campaign, I highly doubt it.

"No Plans" sounds like typical corporatespeak for shooting down a release while still leaving yourself some wiggle room.

You wouldn't, because that's money that could be spent paying people to slap the Devil May Cry franchise in the face with their limp cocks.

I just don't even understand what this fucking company is even doing anymore, why even have a western branch? The only Capcom game I had light interest in playing (since Monster Hunter doesn't exist anymore), and no plans. Thank god they've funded that LP3 though!

Its like they're oddly ashamed of their japanese teams ever seeing their work release off of the asian islands these days. Fuck them.

Unsurprising. The whole reason they made it is because they thought Lost Planet 3 didn't appeal to Japan.

I guess you're right, but I always get the feeling that, unless they say "We won't release the game," (which almost never happens) it doesn't sound right to post articles like those.

translation:

If there is going to be a game that does essentially the same and is ridicously succesful we will think about riding on that wave.

So basically never.

We don't really know enough about this game to say if it's automatically good just because it's got anime visuals.

Oddly this is the exact type of title Capcom would have been proud to show off before this generation I feel. They loved being known as (one of) the crazy, high-octane game maker, even back to the NES.

Now they're chasing them dudebros.

This is different from the constant "maybe we will, you just have to be patient" talk. This is them explicitly saying they don't have plans to bring it over. And if they don't, who does? Nobody. They're not thinking of bringing it over, period.

Except this game is a bit of a shooter which has more appeal than those. So yeah, it's definitely more shocking than a PSP game not being localized and a spin off Ace Attorney as much as I wanted both.

Releasing the eShop version would probably be the easiest, cheapest route if they wanted to do it. But they clearly don't.

They won't announce it on a forum just because a dude asks. I don't think it's coming but this doesn't "confirm" anything
