CES 2009: Dead Rising music video with subtitles is still completely amazing

OK, Conrad wasn't doing jumping jacks of joy after he got his hands on a preview build of the Wii-exclusive Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop at CES. If anything, there has been some good to come out of Capcom's decision to port over the Xbox 360 title -- the punk rock song and video by Japanese band GaGaGa Special.

While the clip itself isn't new, but the subtitles Capcom added for the CES trailer are. As expected, the lyrics are as ridiculous as the concept itself, with game references like "If you want to survive for 72 hours you'd better pray." And the now classic, "You're in a zombie hell and you've got to save your friends."

Really, the only thing I understand in the entire video is the repeated shouts of "Dead Rising!" This translation could be totally off, but it's making me smile enough that it's not even worth arguing over if it is.

It won't be long before Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop hits shelves on February 24. I'll be honest and say that after spending some time with the game, I'm not entirely sold that it has any real reason to be on the Wii. With that said, I really can't help myself from wanting to pick up a copy. Because really, when is slaughter a room full of zombies with a lawn mower not fun?
