Get your ninja skills on with new Dead Rising 2 DLC trailer

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Before zombies were the characters du jour in video games, ninjas reigned supreme. Capcom feel it only right to combine the two in the third DLC for splatter-fest, Dead Rising 2. The Ninja Skills pack is out now on Xbox Live and PSN for 160 MS Points and £1.59 respectively, allowing Chuck to take on the persona of a silent assassin. So much so that he’ll be able to creep up on zombies and become difficult to grab with increased damage dealt by swords. Items such as plates can be thrown faster and harder too so everything you’d expect from a ninja then. Well, ones with an aversion to tableware anyway.


Dead Rising 2 launch trailer lurches forward

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Since there are only days in between gamers and the release of Dead Rising 2, Capcom have released the official launch trailer with the strap line ‘creativity kills’. And by jove does it ever. Chuck Greene’s pursuit for Zombrex through Las Vegas, I mean, Fortune City, is filled with all kinds of zombie killing equipment and if Case Zero is anything to go by, you may want to keep an eye out for a bucket and a drill…

Dead Rising 2 is out Friday 24th in Europe and 28th in the US for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Dead Rising 2 receives even more downloadable content

We’ve had Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and it sold phenomenally well for Capcom with over 300,000 downloads shifted in its first week of release. Queue Dead Rising 2: Case West announced by Keiji Inafune at this year’s Tokyo Game Show taking place right now, as I type this very story.

Again, this addition to the Dead Rising franchise is to be exclusive to Xbox 360 with Inafune even apologising to PS3 fans. Whereas Case Zero was a prequel, Case West is to be a sequel or rather epilogue to Dead Rising 2 featuring new protagonist Greene partner up with original hero Frank West. Other than those snippets of tease, no other details were mentioned but Capcom would be wise to mirror the 400 MS Point price of Case Zero in order to replicate its success. Lets not get greedy now…

Chuck (up) Greene in Dead Rising 2 prequel

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The gap-bridging downloadable game, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero comes exclusively to Xbox Live Marketplace today introducing players to new hero Chuck Greene. It seems Capcom like their leads to have a vice or two. Frank West of Dead Rising was partial to taking pictures of ladies cleavage and seen here in this video from Kotaku, Greene is a lover of the malty hops, drinking himself silly for our entertainment. The result is an expulsion of his innards through his mouth making the zombies slip about in comical fashion. Such amusement and more for only 400 MS Points (£3.43/€4.80/$5)? I’d say that’s a bargain.

Zombies beware, Dead Rising 2 is out a week earlier than expeceted

After delaying Dead Rising 2 from its original August 31st release until October 1st, Capcom have announced that they may have been a little harsh with the set-back and that Dead Rising 2 is now coming a week earlier on September 24th. Japan and US will see the game a few days later on September 28th. As for the prequel and introduction to the second game’s lead, Chuck Greene, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero fills the August 31st slot exclusively for Xbox 360 costing as little as 400 MS Points (£3.43/€4.80/$5). It’s not often that games get released earlier than planned so lets all revel in the wondrous occasion… okay, you can stop now.
