While fending off thousands of flesh hungry zombies, Dead Rising 2‘s Chuck Greene might want to take a little break. Perhaps to read a Playboy magazine. For the articles, of course.
Capcom has announced that it’s partnered with Playboy to feature the branding, magazines, and even Playboy bunnies in Dead Rising 2. Throughout the world you’ll find billboards, Playboy ads, and even be able to find and pick up magazines. Dead Rising 2 will feature a new system in which players will receive bonuses for reading magazines. There’s a “bonus/boner” joke in here somewhere, but I’m too mature to follow through on it.
Capcom’s not the first to put Playboy magazines and branding into its game; earlier this year 2K Games announced that players would be able to collect classic Playboy centerfolds in Mafia II. Dead Rising 2 is out later this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
