Capcom confirms Dead Rising 2

It's coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Capcom has confirmed a sequel to zombie shooter Dead Rising is in development.

Dead Rising 2 is set several years after the first game. Turns out no one managed to contain that pesky old zombie virus, and it's spread throughout the US.

The press release promises Dead Rising 2 will take the series to "a whole new level", originally, with "tens of thousands" of zombies to batter. There's an all-new "gambling paradise" called Fortune City to explore, plus new objects to use as deadly weapons.

The game is being developed in partnership with Canadian studio Blue Castle Games, who previously produced baseball title The Biggs. Some members of the original Dead Rising Team will help out, including Keiji Inafune - said to be playing " an active role" the development process.

Dead Rising 2 is in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, with a release date yet to be announced.
