Dead Rising 2 Confirmed

Capcom has finally decided to come forward and comfirm that Dead Rising 2 is infact a real game. Blue Castle has been confirmed as the developer and we have yet to hear a release date.

Coming out for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC, Dead Rising 2 will be set several years after the events of the original game, seeing zombies infest throughout America. The screenshots released seem to give away slight hints as to where the game will take place. They have a slight Vegas twist to them, as show-girl zombies are about and you’ll be in what looks like a casino.

Judging from the screen shots and press release the game sounds promising, and I just hope that Dead Rising 2 will fix the issues the original had.

Sequel to 1.5 million-plus seller announced for multiple gaming platforms

London – February 9, 2009 – Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Dead Rising™ 2 is in development for three different gaming platforms: the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Sony Computer Entertainment’s PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) and the 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.

Released in 2006, Dead Rising won praise across the globe for its mix of intense zombie action and dark humour, garnering numerous awards including IGN’s “Most Innovative Design for Xbox 360”, Gamespot’s “Best Action-Adventure Game” for 2006 and “Action Game of the Year” at the 2006 Spike TV Video Game Awards.

Further details concerning the story and gameplay of Dead Rising 2 will be made available shortly.
