The lights are on
Capcom is gearing up for a big year. It’s not yet February and the industry icon has already released two highly-touted titles – Dark Void and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. Filling out the remainder of the 2010 roster is Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, Mega Man 10, Final Fight: Double Impact, Lost Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, Monster Hunter Tri and more. It appears that we can now add Dead Rising 2 to the 2010 tally. Following the slew of updates out of Capcom yesterday, the developer/publisher confirmed that Dead Rising 2 will claw its way from the grave sometime in 2010. That slightly narrows the previously known launch window that could have seen the game released anytime before March 2011. In addition to the launch update, Capcom also revealed that a live-action Dead Rising movie is in the works. Yep, the game that unapologetically ripped off Dawn of the Dead is coming full circle. Slated to be distributed over Xbox Live in Japan, there is no official news about a North American version. The official Capcom Blog seems to be gauging the interest of readers through comments, however. You can check out the trailer here. The camp and gore seem to be on par with what we’ve come to expect from zombie movies. It’s the hardcore wheelchair customization that’s caught our interest. We suspect that can be credited to the involvement of Dead Rising Director Keiji Inafune.
