Heads up, today is the day when all of the embargo on all of the coverage out of Capcom's CAPTIVATE event is up. Fortunately for you, someone has decided to break embargo early, so here we have a new and extended Dead Rising 2 trailer.
It's awesome, for sure. But it doesn't tell us too much about the game, which looks to essentially be the original Dead Rising with a new character (Chuck Greene) in a casino setting. Chuck beats zombies with a roulette table, a guitar, and rides a motorcycle with two chainsaws attached to it through a crowd of zombie. Also, he wears some kind of moose head. Awesome? We'd say so.
Fans of the first game will recognize some of the elements shown (like the zombie kill count and the sound effects), which should be comforting. But we'll have to wait until a little later today to get the finer details on Dead Rising 2, as those who attended CAPTIVATE will start to spill their guts.
