Is E.X. Troopers reusing assets from Mega Man Legends 3?

reuse assets

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…

Gameplay footage starts at 1:03

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.

Left = Lost Planet. Right = Mega Man Legends 3.

Well, I guess things are starting to point more towards the obvious. That’s a real shame, I totally digged that biker outfit.

    the only thing that looks reused is the fat guy other then that, everything is completely different.

    You are all butthurt and are trying to grasp at something that is died.

    Get other it already.

    E.X. Troopers will be awesome.

      The physics look pretty similar in a lot of the gameplay clips. It’s more than just the one character. I’m not saying it’s a complete rip off or anything, just that you are underselling it to try and make your point seem stronger.

      Typical idiot on the internet.

      Also I don’t know how anyone can get “other” it.

      anyone with half a brain can see their are key elements that are very similar to the legends franchise. you can go ahead and put in your two cents, but if your going to insult people take it somewhere else

      “Butthurt” ive herd this so many times it’s lost all meaning, if it even had a meaning.

      Also how do you grasp at some thing that “is died”?

      Any ways yeah EX troopers is clearly just Legends 3 because Capcom just wanted to cut corners and make a spin off to a series that every one thought they killed off by turning it into the most cliched crap ever

    the real kicker would be if they include a Barrett and Megaman trigger skin option
    in E.X. Troopers
