It didn't take long to verify if that supposedly leaked teaser trailer was legit, as today's announcement has quickly clarified everything.
According to D+PAD, Capcom has finally confirmed that Dead Rising 2 is currently in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The sequel to the popular zombie slaying extravaganza – which wasn't available on the PS3, as most of you know – will indeed utilize a Las Vegas-like setting: Fortune City will be the undead's home, and it'll be up to you to eliminate the threat. One of the original's most appealing features was the ability to use just about anything you could find to smash zombies, and considering you were in a mall, there were literally hundreds of experimental make-shift weapons. Fortune City should offer something similar, and we can't wait to dive into the bloody goodness. Capcom has teamed up with Blue Castle Games to work on Dead Rising 2 , and many members of the original team will stay on, including Capcom's global head of research and development, Keiji Inafune. He will be the game's producer. As for more in the way of details, we can expect those to arrive in due time, and we'll also hope for an estimated release date.
At this point, it's just good news to know that the sequel is indeed headed to the PS3. There was talk of porting the first title over to Sony's machine, but it got to a point where all we wanted was the sequel…and now we have it. Yay! Capcom certainly wasn't lying about their commitment to multiplatform production, huh?.
