Bring out yer dead: Capcom confirms ‘Dead Rising 2’

Finally, after a way-too-long wait, Capcom has some good news for the zombie-killing fanatics out there like me.

According to a Capcom press release today, Dead Rising 2 is already in the works for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC (yet another reason that Macs suck?).

“Dead Rising 2 will take the franchise to a new level of zombie-killing fun with tens of thousands of zombies, the all new gambling paradise of Fortune City to explore and conquer plus a host of new in-game objects that can all be used as deadly weapons to stave off the zombie assault.”

Set a number of years after the events in the first game, where players fought the zombie outbreak in a mall, the sequel is in the hands of Canadian developer Blue Castle Games, under the watchful eye of Capcom and some of the original team.

It can’t come out soon enough. Where’s my chainsaw!?
