Monster Hunter DLC Invades US & EU Release of Lost Planet 2

May 9, 2010 Written by Thomas Williams

PlayStation LifeStyle reported a few weeks back that the Japanese version of Capcom’s Lost Planet 2 would be receiving a DLC skin of the ever popularly Monster Hunter series in Japan. The ‘Rathalos’ armor was yet another skin revealed by Capcom to be featured in the game along with Albert Wesker from the Resident Evil series and Frank West from Dead Rising. The worst part was that at the time, the Monster Hunter skin was a japan-only exclusive. Not anymore! The DLC will arrive soon and the best part for sure is the price.

How would you like the Rathalos armor on launch day? Capcom has made it so! For the good ole’ price of FREE you get yet another skin to run around in. Only one thing has changed for the US release of the DLC. It is no longer a PS3 exclusive, seeing as how there’s so many Xbox fans of the series. Riiiight.

In related Lost Planet 2 news, the game will require a mandatory install of 4.5 GB, so make sure you have some space reserved on your HDD before you and three other buddies can kick some Akrid tail!

Lost Planet 2 busts loose this upcoming Tuesday, May 11th in the US and Europe. Watch for our Review soon after release!
