Lost Planet 2
Frank West Spotted in Lost Planet 2
Written By
View author's profile

During a Lost Planet 2 co-op presentation in London last Friday, Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2 producer, Jun Takeuchi, whilst showing off the game's customisation options revealed that Frank West would appear as an in-game skin.

Frank West is set to join the likes of Albert Wesker and the Gears of War duo, and will feature in the title equipped with a teddy bear rucksack and his trademark leather jacket.

There is no word as of yet regarding which platform Frank West will appear on, but considering the presentation was carried out on an Xbox 360, I'd say it was safe to assume that he's 360 bound.

Could Frank West be a pre-order incentive now that Wesker is seemingly available to all? When we hear more, we'll be sure to let you know.

They just keep adding more to this game. Adding characters won't make your game better. It's still going to suck.

#20, get bent! Why yell and complain on a forum about what may or may not be a pre-order bonus. If you don't like them just don't pre-order anything. I don't understand how it gets extra sales but I like them so I do it with the games I'm going to buy anyhow.
So in summary, you don't have to participate so would you kindly die in a fire?

Wesker did not die in RE5. He learned a lesson though and became a good guy. He injected himself with an anti aging virus and in the future he moves to a distant planet called EDN3. Albert Wesker also became friends with the most famous zombie killing journalist on earth, Frank West. He also got an injection of the anti aging virus and joined Wesker to cover the story of the happenings on EDN3. When the humans won the war against the locusts on the planet Sera, Marcus and Dom soon started to miss the fighs against dangerous monsters and became depressiv and therefore decides to travel to the planet EDN3 colonised by humans just like Sera and fight in a new war. They team up with Wesker and West to fight against the Akrid and evil space pirates.

Random? Not at all ;-)

Im looking forward to the game as well me and my mates have had it on pre order for a good 6months+ now,

as for walking around looking like a gaint cock in MW2.. hell if IW can make money out of it expect it in a over priced DLC near you! lol

I appreciate crossovers, but Marcus and Dom still come off as strange. Wesker and Frank West make total sense since its from the same developing company. Hope there is more unannounced characters we can play as.

Why are so many people making a big deal out of this? JPN games (and western to a lesser degree) have been using alternate cameo costumes for as long as graphics have been good enough to show us the alterations, but now that it's not a secret code to be researched there's a problem? Capcom has one of the biggest treasure troves of semi-recognizable characters, let them flex their muscle (and tossing in some guys from another 3rd person, sci-fi, "kill montsers" shooter is hardly an incomprehensible choice).

Felicia? Yeah, I forgot her name too (actually had to go load up MvC 2 to double-check),

I'm sure more than half of these cynics would LOVE to use her for a little single-player private time. With the visuals LP 2 has, Capcom might feel inclined to downgrade the eroticism a pint or two
