We've just heard from Capcom that Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition (try saying that quickly ten times) is in development for Xbox 360 and PC platforms.

Scheduled for release this June throughout PAL territories, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition extends the Lost Planet experience by delivering fresh new content and gameplay options. The Xbox 360 version will be released as part of the Classics range.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition provides the same single player experience found in the original Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, but with the addition of three new modes. In Score Attack all enemies have points assigned to them and the score awarded will change depending on how they are defeated, with skilled marksmen being rewarded for head and core shots. For those who thrive on a challenge then Trial Battle Mode delivers, pitting players against all of the game’s Bosses, one after another. Players of both Score Attack and Trial Battle modes will be able compare their skills and compete for bragging rights via the online ranking system. Finally things get a little crazy with Off Limit Mode which lets players take on Lost Planet’s harsh environments and enemies with over the top super-charged weapons and a powered up grappling hook.
