The first details for Dead Rising 2 have finally come to light via IGN today, and while there’s not a helluva lot to report, it’s just cool to know it’s in active development.
IGN confirmed this info with Capcom today, who said that Keiji Inafune is producing with members of the original game’s team working on the sequel’s development. Dead Rising 2 will take place several years after the original; the virus has spread across the entire country and players will now be facing down thousands of zombies.
Let’s ponder that for a moment. Thousands of zombies. Damn.
The actual setting will be a Las Vegas-esque metropolis called Fortune City, and the creators promise there will be lots and lots of new and interesting tools with which to dispatch the dead. Which is all well and fine, as long as they keep the annoying storyline to a minimum this time.
