Capcom Cut Content From Lost Planet 2. Could Turn Up As DLC

Lost Planet 2's producer Jun Takeuchi has stated that Capcom had to cut some significant content from the final game due to restrictions imposed by the comparative limited capacity of Xbox 360's DVDs.
In a recent interview, Takeuchi said, "This time, truly, the content that was cut was significant and at the end, we had to wrestle with disc space."
He then went on to add, "I think we could be able to add that content at a later date as downloadable content."
While the PS3's Blu-ray format provides plenty of space for the content on Sony's platform, making LP2 multiformat has proved a challenge for Capcom as Takeuchi summed up by saying, "the edited content was way too much and dealing with that was more difficult than anything."
Don't fret though. There's still hope that the DLC will see the light of day and we're keeping our fingers crossed that it'll be sensibly priced.
Lost Planet 2 is due for worldwide release on May 18th.
