'Dead Rising 2' Confirmed For Multiplatforms?


Posted January 28, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

According to Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, the open-world, zombie slaying action game Dead Rising 2 is going multiplatform in 2009! The original Dead Rising was a 360 exclusive, but Capcom has declared 2009 the year of the multiplatform and intends to put out what are mostly games for both the 360 and the PS3.

However, everything is not separate, but equal. Capcom also promised some special goodies exclusive to the 360 version, "in order to show its good will towards the console."

Update: It looks like this story might not be true. Capcom has released this statement: "Dead Rising was a huge success for us and is obviously the kind of game we'd like to continue to make. However, at the moment we have made no official announcement regarding a sequel. As the source is Famitsu, I can only suggest that it was a mistranslation."  If only I knew Japanese!

Go ahead and flame me for this, but I think Dead Rising is one of the best games that has ever come out for the 360. In terms of sheer fun, it's near the top of my list. I even liked the janky save system that everyone got in a twist over. I even liked the way survivors would make stupid, panic-fueled moves when you were trying to lead them to safety. I liked everything about that game... except Otis. Damn you, Otis! I don't have time for a long conversation, man -- they're trying to eat my brains, here!
