Capcom have been busy promoting their games on PC, and that continues with the confirmation of the sequel to their ultra-popular comedy zombie-bashing game, Dead Rising. The new game, which does not have a release date, continues the general theme of defeating the shambling hordes. Capcom explain: “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.” And that inevitably means more running around with a frying pan, braining the undead. The first shots seem to show horror fun in Vegas, which seems appropriate. Trailer after the hop.
