Dead Rising 2 Announced, Shown

Screen_2Capcom has officially woken the dead again as the publisher today confirmed that Dead  Rising 2 is indeed in development, and for three platforms too: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Adding another zero to its predecessor, the sequel promises “tens of thousands of zombies” and will take players to the “gambling paradise of Fortune City”.

The game is set several years after the events of the first title. Unfortunately, the virus was not contained and spread unchecked throughout the US.

It is being developed by Canadian developer Blue Castle Games with a number of members from the original Dead Rising team. Capcom’s global head of research and development – Keiji Inafune – will serve as the game’s producer and will play an active role in the project.

Below are the first screenshots from the game. Enjoy.
