Somewhere, a Syfy executive is drooling. Lost Planet 3's new gameplay trailer, which just aired at Capcom's Gamescom press conference, teases a battle between a giant snow scorpion and a human-piloted mech. The trailer also introduces a new flying critter called Firewasp. If you don't down this foe quickly, it looks like it can lift you off of the ground. I'm guessing it eats you after that.

Lost Planet 3 is scheduled to release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in early 2013.
