This official Dead Rising 2 promotional trailer looks familiar, awesome

Remember this cool "leaked" video from a couple of days ago? No one knew for sure it it was for Dead Rising 2 or now. I felt bad for tricking you all before, so we played it safe and said it might be fake. Or not. We seriously had no idea.

A lot of you called it "real" in our comments section. Guess what? It was real! Compare the leaked video to the official Dead Rising 2 promotional trailer we have here, direct from Capcom themselves. One difference between the two videos is that this one actually has a game name and date added to it.

Watch closer and you'll see a lot of new stuff. There's more talk of the "lavish casinos," which look to be on some kind of river boat. There's also a better shot of Frank in his Mega-outfit.

What's with the Wikipedia-looking page for something called "Zombrex"? It seems to be some kind of product. There's a shot with the tagline "Keep living your life with Zombrex." Other screens also mention "injections" and similar things. It seems that this Zombrex is an important part of Dead Rising 2.

Bring it on. Inject me now. Now that it has been confirmed, I can't wait.
