It’s great when controls translate perfectly how you picture them. According to MyWii, Capcom has detailed some of the more action-oriented controls in Dead Rising: Chop 'Til you Drop. The most shocking revelation is that when players aim at zombies, the on screen reticule will turn red. This innovation in reticule use indicates that you have indeed targeted a “weak spot” on the zombie. To reload your weapon after sending a horde of a hundred zombies back to their grave, simply shake the Wii remote.

If you were worried that Dead Rising: Chop ‘Til You Drop would not have a waggle mechanic, get ready to be pacified. Whenever a zombie attaches itself to your body, the only way to fight it off is via frantic waggling. The last bit of information is that the d-pad will allow hot-key weapon choices, while the Z and C buttons on the nunchuck will handle the sniper zoom.

I may give the Wii a hard time, but I’m excited to see how this Dead Rising incarnation will turn out. I may have already dug the Xbox 360 version, but I definitely wouldn’t mind actually having a game to scrub off the dust on the Wii. The controls look like they’ll be solid enough, as long as the waggling continues to stay at this minimal level.
