Capcom has recently announced a Lost Planet Spin off title for the 3DS dubbed E.X. Troopers. To make itself more distinct, the game will feature anime style graphics and faster paced–run and gun–action (with Jet packs!).
Looks pretty cool, right? Well, it seems some gamers around the net felt it looked very similar to another game…

While all of this is pure speculation, one can’t look at the two without noticing some uncanny resemblance. Mega Man Legends 3 was being developed for the 3DS but was later cancelled due to “not meeting the criteria”. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Capcom did reuse the assets, both games are colorful 3rd person shooters and it would make more sense to start with something sitting on a hard drive then from scratch.
One viewer managed to notice a very strong similarity between these two characters.
Well, I guess things are starting to point more towards the obvious. That’s a real shame, I totally digged that biker outfit.
