Newly announced action shooter E.X. Troopers might not be familiar yet, but its setting should be. The Capcom game shares the same world as sci-fi game Lost Planet. However, Ex Troopers looks very different.

The game has an anime look (see above) and is set against a military academy. While it looks vastly different from the main series, Lost Planet foes, Akrid, do appear in the game. I guess they'll get an anime makeover, too?
