Dead Rising 2's Will Include Co-Op When It Launches In September.

According to the press release Capcom's just released for the upcoming Dead Rising 2, you'll now be able to enjoy said action in multiplayer, thanks to 2-player co-op.

The press release reads: "Co-op play is introduced to the Dead Rising universe for the first time as players can invite their friends to partner up with them at any time to take on the zombie massacre- tag-team style! Play with a friend and have even more fun as you lure zombies in using strategic items like a toy helicopter or a firecracker. Once the zombies have gathered, your friend can rain bullets from above or shoot at a strategically-placed gas tank to create a deadly explosion that will take out masses of the enemy. Killing zombies with a friend is always more fun!"

Ignore the PR hyperbole and hopefully you have enough imagination to conjure up just how awesome this is going to be. If you lack the imagination, think of something really amazing - like a rollerblading dog drinking Mountain Dew - and you'll get the idea.

According to Capcom the game's due early-September in Europe, very late August in USA.
