Capcom set August 31 as the release date for Dead Rising 2 in North America. Gamers in Japan will be able to fend off zombies with a chainsaw taped to an oar in Japan on September 2nd and finally in Europe on September 3rd. Dead Rising 2 will be released simultaneously on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PCs.
Before the game comes out Xbox 360 owners will be able to play Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, a prologue scheduled to launch shortly before the game. Case Zero introduces Chuck Greene, the new protagonist, and connects Dead Rising 2 with the original game. Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will not be on disc. The only way to get the extra episode is to download it from Xbox Live.
