Lost Planet 3 has been issued a Japanese release date of June 27, according to the latest issue of Famitsu (via Gematsu).
Set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, the open-world prequel promises to reveal new truths regarding the colonial history of the series' foreboding planet E.D.N. III.
The third instalment will drop Lost Planet 2's Monster Hunter-esque focus on co-op and grind-heavy experience in favour of a story-driven narrative - and mecha.
