A job listing at Dead Rising 2 developer Capcom Vancouver has hinted that the studio is working on a new unannounced IP
The job posting notes that the studio is hard at work developing a new "third person action game". Meanwhile, a second listing describes the studio as a "multi-project and multi-IP developer", with "two new AAA titles in the works". Naturally,..
Those of you intending to pick up Dead Rising: Off The Record with a Dead Rising 2 save on your system will get a bonus item for your loyalty to the series
Chuck Greene's jacket will be unlocked as a starting costume, allowing you to dress protagonist Frank West as the chiseled hero from the previous game. Awesome. We guess.
Are we going have to buy a factory's worth of Enslaved stock? After that ending we need the game to be profitable enough for Ninja Theory to develop a follow-up
But the first week's sales aren't looking overly promising. Well - perhaps we're exaggerating. Breaking the top ten at this time of year is hard work. So both Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow and Enslaved deserve a huge pat on the back for..
One of our favourite things about Dead Rising 2 were the ridiculous costumes you could don while slaying hordes of the undead
We spent a lot of our time with the game wearing a Blanka mask alongside a pair of hot-pants. Good times. It's nice therefore, to see Blue Castle provide a steady stream of new costumes via DLC. The first pack is up next week...
FIFA 11's jumped straight to the top of the UK sales charts this week, achieving the third biggest video game launch in UK history
The title overthrew its predecessor to take the crown, falling just short of records set by Modern Warfare 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. Unit sales are up 21 percent over the previous title, with revenue up 36 percent...
Someone tell Jake Humphrey not to worry about his job; F1 is still a big deal in the UK
That's apparent as F1 2010 has scooped the number one UK sales spot. Codemasters' racing title beat out competition from both Halo: Reach and Dead Rising 2 — the latter of which debuted in the number three spot. PlayStation Move must-have Sports Champions held strong after plenty of positive buzz from..
The first thing we thought when Capcom announced a second piece of XBOX 360 exclusive Dead Rising 2 content during TGS last week was, "Why?" Not why are they releasing the exclusive content, but why are they bothering to put the full game on the PlayStation 3 in the first place? They may aswell have kept the franchise an exclusive, as they don't seem fully committed to the PS3 at all
Sony fans are..
Capcom must have enjoyed working with Dead Rising 2 developer, Canadian studio Blue Castle Games. The publisher's just announced that they've bought the studio out right. The team will be renamed Capcom Games Studio Vancouver. We wonder if that's the name that will pop-up at the start of Dead Rising 2. Still, this cements Capcom's ambitions to be a more global publisher.
Like a zombie out of 28 Days Later, Dead Rising 2's release date likes to move around a lot
Capcom's just told us that the game's European release date has been moved forward to September 24th. The US release date will remain unchanged, it's due on the 28th September there. No more last minute changes please Capcom.
Aswell as revealing Dead Rising 2's pack-shot, Capcom's also announced that the PlayStation 3 zombie-slasher is to get an amazing collector's edition in Europe
The Outbreak Pack includes a 12" zombie figurine with various accessories including - yes, you did see it correctly - a Servbot head. You'll also get a token for some extra downloadable goodies. No word on a price yet. Oh, by the way,..
Expecting Dead Rising 2 in early September? Don't
Capcom's just confirmed that the game's been pushed back a month in both the US and Europe. It's now hitting October 1st in Euro-land, and September 28th in the US of A. No reason has been given for the delay, but if it means an extra layer of polish, it's probably for the best.
There's probably something deeply inappropriate about sexy ladies and rotting corpses, but that's exactly what you can expect from Capcom's Dead Rising 2
Capcom's just announced a deal with Playboy that'll see popular magazine covers show up in and around Dead Rising 2's Las Vegas-esque setting, Fortune City. Interestingly, collecting and reading Playboy magazines will boost protagonist Chuck..
A video uploaded by the Playstation Blog should give you a first taste of Dead Rising 2's multiplayer
The walkthrough with Capcoms Mike Schmitt and Wes Phillips is a little drawn out, but still relatively exciting if you're interested in batting zombies over the head with clubs and various other objects. We're reasonably excited. The game's due very, very late August for the US, early..
"My name is Chuck," protagonist Chuck Greene exclaims without the slightest intention of irony in this latest trailer for Capcom's upcoming Dead Rising 2
If the whole game's delivered with the "not-quite-self-aware" tone of this trailer, it's going to be properly hilarious. Also, does anyone else think Chuck's face is properly hilarious?
Dead Rising 2's all about slashing zombies in the face
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...
The original Dead Rising did not come out on the Playstation 3, but was largely considered as something of a flawed gem
The sequel is being developed by Candian house Blue Castle Games. Since the original was developed in-house at Capcom Japan, why the switch to a Western developer? Producer Shinsaku Ohara told CVG, the change was simple as Capcom "wanted to do it better for a Western audience..
Coming as part of a long list of announcements this morning, Capcom has announced that Dead Rising 2 will still hit this calendar year
Well, in Japan at least. The company announced they intend to release a live action movie alongside the game entitled Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun. That is all.
Apparently Capcom are still a little freaked by this Swine Flu thing
We wouldn't really know, we haven't read/heard anything about Swine Flu for about 2 weeks now. Whatever, we're sure the media are still trying to scare everyone. Alas, while Swine Flu exists, Capcom Japan won't be travelling around the world. And that means there'll be no showings of Dead Rising 2 until TGS. Still, it might make..
It's been a bit on and off for a while, but it was finally revealed at Capcom's Captivate 09 media conference that upcoming Dead Rising 2 will indeed have multiplayer, although details are scarce
Interestingly though, Capcom's Inafune did explain why the game has multiplayer:"We're at a point in game history that you need to have some form of multiplayer component in a..
Here's the latest trailer for Capcom's upcoming zombie slasher, Dead Rising 2
Not content with being absolutely bloody hilarious, it also sports retro piano jazz right next to chugging heavy rock. We hate heavy rock (you know that!) but it sure makes protagonist Chuck Greene look like a badass.
Capcom claim that there will be 6000 zombies on screen at any one time in sequel to zombie-em-up Dead Rising 2
Apparently, this claim will be true for a multiplayer mode. Practically a confirmation, but there are no more details to talk about yet. We'll have to wait and see. However, Capcom have claimed that there will be over 800 different clothes textures, ensuring the enemies don't all look the..

No release date has been announced but it's been made clear the game will take place in "Fortune City" an "all new gambling paradise". Basically Las Vegas then. Missing out on the original Dead Rising was a smidgen sad for us PS3 gamers..
