Dead Rising 2 Announced

Sorry, I haven't posted in a while. My only cousin died last week and I have been dealing with everything related to that inside and out. Anyways, I am thrilled to announce that Capcom has officially announced the sequel to one of my favorire Xbox 360 games ever.

Official word from
Capcom today revealed that Dead Rising 2 is in development for the Xbox 360 and also the PS3 and PC platforms. The new game is being produced by Capcom's Keiji Inafune and developed by members of the original game's team in partnership with Canada's Blue Castle Games. No release date has been set.

The sequel will take place several years after the zombie invasion of Willamette. The original virus escaped containment and has now spread throughout the entire country. Players will now have to combat tens of thousands of zombies and explore the new "gambling paradise" of Fortune City. The designers also promise that there will be lots of new objects you can use to kill the zombies. We're guessing bludgeoning them to death with slot machines or shooting them with slices of $5.99 prime rib are going to be high on the list.
