E3 10: TIGER! Dead Rising 2 has one

Dead Rising 2 is pretty amazing. All the excess from the first game is back with a bloody vengeance. The game has even more zombies on-screen (reportedly over one thousand) and even more bizarre ways to dispatch them. Sadly, none of the more admirable qualities of the bastard Wii-port Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop seemed to have made it into the sequel. While the Wii build of the game lacks in zombie count, it makes up for it by throwing tons of different types of zombies at you, including zombie animals.Their inclusion in the game went a long way to keep the combat from getting stale.

Maybe Dead Rising 2 will pick up some of the better qualities of Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop after all. Though this tiger doesn’t look particularly zombie-fied, it’s certainly kicking some ass. Sadly, that’s all I know about it. It could be a boss fight, a cut-scene, a regular enemy, or God damn Travis Touchdown for all I know. Either way, it’s awesome.

What do you say? Would you like the tiger to be a regular Dead Rising enemy? Is that too weird? Would it be less weird if it were a zombie tiger?
