Lost Planet 3 hookshot weapon unveiled

Capcom have revealed some all-new details about the next Lost Planet game.

At the Gamescom show in Germany, the Japanese developer revealed that, when piloting a mech in Lost Planet 3, you’ll have access to a hookshot which can be used as a weapon to attack enemies or as a movement aid that allows you to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.

The other big news about LP3, which is set on an icy world similar to that of the original Lost Planet, is that the game will feature a cover system that will allow you to take shelter behind walls and other objects conveniently placed throughout the environment.

Lost Planet 3 is due for release on the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 some time in 2013.
