Capcom confirms Dead Rising 2
Capcom has confirmed that Dead Rising 2 is in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
The sequel to the 1.5 million-plus selling Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 will take the franchise to a new level of zombie-killing fun with tens of thousands of zombies, the all new gambling paradise of Fortune City to explore and conquer plus a host of new in-game objects that can all be used as deadly weapons to stave off the zombie assault.
Dead Rising 2 is set several years after the infamous zombie invasion of Willamette. Unfortunately, the zombie virus was not contained at the conclusion of Dead Rising, spreading unchecked throughout the United States and Dead Rising 2 depicts a country where zombie outbreaks continue to strike.
Dead Rising 2 is being developed in partnership with up and coming Canadian developer Blue Castle Games. A number of members from the original Dead Rising team will be working alongside Blue Castle Games throughout the development process, including Capcom’s global head of research and development, Keiji Inafune, who as the game’s producer will play an active role in the project. A release window was not disclosed.
Capcom has stated that further details concerning the story and gameplay of Dead Rising 2 will be made available shortly, but in the meantime you can check out the first official screens below or watch the first ever footage on D+PAD TV.
