Capcom : Dead Rising 2 Confirmed

1 min read

Dead Rising 1

It seems like just yesterday that we posted a video , that we speculated may be early promotional work for Dead Rising 2.Thanks to a press release from Capcom, we need no longer speculate – Dead Rising 2 is coming. More importantly, it’ll be free from the shackles of console exclusivity – Dead Rising 2 will be available for the Xbox 360, the PS3 as well as PC.

Developed in conjunction with Canadian Blue Castle Games, Dead Rising 2 will have players tackling a Zombie infestation in fictional gambler’s paradise Fortune City. The game will no doubt feature a host of new items and weapons to stave off the undead assault. I’m going to be mighty upset if I can’t use a croupier’s stick  to poke out zombie eyes.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • It’s coming to the Pc? Cool 🙂

  • Macethy

    Can’t wait!Hope it comes out this year too,Resi 5 and this in one year?YES PLZ!!! :biggrin:

  • Wolfy

    [12:12] Tim: Joy
    [12:12] Brian: Hm?
    [12:12] Tim: The official announcement of Dead Rising 2
    [12:12] Brian: Oh ho.
    [12:13] Tim: No shopping mall this time, instead it takes place in the “gambling paradise of Fortune City”
    [12:14] Tim: No Frank West either. He’s probably off covering wars, you know.
    [12:14] Brian: That’s what he does.
    [12:14] Brian: So many wars, he’s covered them all.
    [12:14] Tim: They have to be covered, and that’s what Frank West does.
    [12:14] Brian: They have wars so he can cover them.
    [12:15] Tim: They call him up and ask if his schedule is free. If they throw a War, can he cover it? He answers yes.
    [12:15] Brian: That’s the real reason for Iraq War 2. He had nothing to do that weekend. That mother******.
    [12:16] Tim: If a War happens in the woods, and Frank West isn’t there to cover it… did the War really happen?
    [12:16] Brian: I don’t see how.
