Dead Rising 2 scheduled to launch this year

According to a new Japanese press release from Capcom, Dead Rising 2 will be shambling onto home consoles before 2010 is finished. The sequel to the successful zombie-splattering sandbox had been without a release window thus far. We were all pretty sure it’d drop this year though. 

Capcom will also be working on a live action movie to tie-in with Dead Rising 2‘s release. Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun is what it shall be called, and that’s more or less all we know about the bloody thing. 

Looking forward to Dead Rising 2? Hoping they improve the save feature this time around, or are you one of those crazy people that liked it? Either way, the game should please fans. They’ve certainly waited long enough for a sequel.
