Campcom unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Lost Planet 3, offering a two minute battle between their mech wielding protagonist Jim Peyton and a giant alien Akrid.

Lost Planet 3 is a prequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and Lost Planet 2. This is the first in the series to be developed outside of Capcom—by Spark Unlimited, a move that proved successful for the reboot of DmC: Devil May Cry.

Lost Planet 3 is set to launch August 27 in North America on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. We can't wait to take down some of those tower-sized baddies.
