Dead Rising 2 Infected With A Delay

imageDead Rising 2 won’t be in stores on August 31. Capcom is holding the zombie invasion back a month.


Dead Rising 2’s new release date in North America is September 28. According to the Japanese home page, Dead Rising 2 is still on track for September 2, which means they’re on track to get the game first.


No reason was given for the delay and the e-mail didn’t mention the release date previously announce at X-10.

    what’s with europe? delayed too?

    • Hraesvelgr

      To October 1, if I remember correctly.

  • Well, kinda sucks, since I was really looking forward to that game. Haven’t played the first one, but I heard all sorts of good things about it.

    • Hraesvelgr

      Yeah, the first one was great. Best zombie game ever, in my opinion.

      • Better than Onnechanbara?!
        I would have to agree, but I only played the Wii version. I heard what they did cut out actually made it more enjoyable.
        @Firo_Prochainezo: I would still check it out. It really is fun, both gameplay and the characters!

        There’s still the demo that needs to be released, too. I’m not sure when that’s coming out…

        • Code

          Yeaahh, I can’t even stress just how much better the 360 version is, they really are like two completely different games practically. rar, when it comes to zombie games, Dead Rising is the only series for me >w<~!

  • BrotherCavil

    Eh, I always look at delays as good signs. It just means they don’t want to compromise.

    September 28th is starting to get crowded. But my birthday is the day after, so maybe I can convince some people to pay for Atelier or Dead Rising for me.

    I was thinking about it, and I may be thinking a bit far, but it is out of the box….but….isn’t September 28 the day of the Outbreak from Resident Evil? Just saying, maybe some significance…

    I was thinking for a bit, and this may be out of the box and thinking too far at the same time, but…isn’t September 28 the day of the outbreak from Resident Evil? I’m just saying….maybe some significance. (sorry for double post)

  • Works for me! Seeing I have the Lost Blu-Ray collection on pre-order for August… that will save me some budget!
