Dead Rising 2, Lost Planet 2 Seemingly Confirmed; Capcom Suggests 'Mistranslation'

Capcom development head and Mega Man character designer Keiji Inafune has apparently confirmed that sequels to both Dead Rising and Lost Planet are on the way.

"We're finally putting out new Dead Rising and Lost Planet games," said Inafune in an interview with Famitsu, as translated by Kotaku. "As a main principle we're thinking about multi-platform, and expanding upon both slightly from the Xbox 360 version."

While a new Dead Rising entry has been rumored for quite some time, it's possible that Inafune was merely referring to the forthcoming Wii release of the zombie-killing franchise. However, a Lost Planet sequel was previously unknown.

When reached for comment, Capcom UK told CVG that "at the moment we have made no official announcement regarding a [Dead Rising] the source is [Japanese magazine Famitsu], I can only suggest that it was a mistranslation."

Capcom is currently prepping a big budget movie based off the icy shooting antics of Lost Planet, and has previously stated that gamers "haven't seen the last of Dead Rising," which was exclusive to Xbox 360. The publisher recently vowed that it's done with platform exclusives and hinted at the Dead Rising franchise hitting PS3.

    I can't wait. The first half of Lost Planet was amazing but then it got stupid hard.

    I own Dead Rising but I only play it to mess around rather than play the story.
