posted on 2013-07-26 00:14 EDT
Capcom announced last week that it will be doing a collaboration between Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim film and Capcom's own Lost Planet 3 game, which is set to ship on August 29. The film will open in Japan on August 9, and more details about the collaboration will be announced in the future.
Pacific Rim is a feature film where humans are fighting an invasive race called "Kaiju," monsters found in the pacific ocean, to the death in battle suits known as "Yaeger." Capcom's Lost Planet 3 is a third-person shooter that takes place on a planet called EDN III. The player must fight off the indigenous Akrid race using their bare hands and guns, or Rig mecha. The similarity in the two story lines is what inspired the collaboration.
