Although officially announced for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC only, GameInformer’s December (digital) issue has revealed that the next installment in Capcom’s popular Lost Planet series, may be coming to Nintendo’s next-gen system the Wii U. Lost Planet 3 was featured in a preview in the issue of the gaming magazine listing it for PS3, PC, Xbox 360, and Wii U platforms as seen in the screen capture below (click to enlarge):
Whether or not this is an error on the part of GameInformer is yet to be seen. We have reached out to Capcom and await an answer. If it does turn out to be true, this may be welcome news to many Nintendo only gamers who have been itching to get into some of the third-party games they have been missing out on, especially this past generation.
You can check out a trailer from GamesCom 2012 for the game here:
Lost Planet 3 is slated for a 2013 release officially on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and possibly on Wii U.
