Your grandpa's favorite nudie magazine, Playboy, will be appearing in Dead Rising 2. Content from the iconic publication will be featured in the game as part of Dead Rising 2's magazine system. Finding a copy of the magazine that will provide a unique and special upgrade for Chuck Greene, the main character in Dead Rising 2. (I wonder what kind of upgrade, specifically?) If it's anything close to as hard as finding Playboy in real life, good luck, man; people hide that stuff!
The magazine system for Dead Rising 2 will feature Playboy along with various other publications, and is an evolution of the book system from the original Dead Rising. Along with the special Playboy issue, there will be a variety of different themed magazines that Chuck will be able to pick up for bonuses to use to help fend off the zombie hordes along the way.
“The Sin City-type environment in Dead Rising 2, Fortune City, is a natural playground for the Playboy Bunnies,” said Seon King, Senior Director of Licensing for Capcom Entertainment, Inc. “We have integrated the Playboy brand throughout the game in ways that bring even more life to Fortune City and add to the user experience.”
My question is: Who is that bunny in the just-released screenshot above, and how does she fit into the story? She doesn't look like a zombie...
