Multiplayer? Yes, Dead Rising 2 will have that

You’ve seen Dead Rising 2 in action. You know it has a moose head, double chainsaws, and a motorbike. All of that, confirmed. But what of multiplayer? According to Capcom’s Keiji Inafune, hell yes.

While Capcom isn’t ready to reveal this aspect of the game just yet, Inafune was more than happy to confirm its inclusion. 

“Single-player alone is not going to cut it,” he told jounalists at a recent Capcom press event. “So rest assured we are going to put multiplayer in the game, but I can’t go into specifics about what type of multiplayer as that directly relates to some of the game systems that we don’t want to talk about at this event.”

He also confirms that the multiplayer, as it should be, will be online. Any guesses as to what Inafune could be referring to when the says “some of the game system”? Could cooperative zombie slaughtering action be in our future? With the game so far off (it’s not scheduled to ship until 2010), it may be awhile before we hear more.
