Dead Rising demo soon

Plus, new trailer on Live.

With summer eating us alive, attention's turning to the first delights of the upcoming third and fourth quarter release schedules - and Dead Rising is chief amongst the early feasts.

It's due out on September 8th in Europe, and Capcom's just whacked up an extended trailer on Xbox Live Marketplace, which you can check out now. And if you do, you'll be pleased to note that a demo is "coming soon".

Hopefully that means it'll be up in time for our release date. Capcom already has a good record in this regard; Dead Rising will be its first Xbox 360 title, but 360 owners can already download a two-part playable demo of its other big exclusive, Lost Planet, which isn't even out until next year.

Dead Rising is due out on September 15th here (although that appears to be a movable target), but it'll be out sooner in the US, with a release set over there for August 8th.

We'll let you know when the demo goes live, so to speak.

Update: Capcom sends word that DR is due out here on Sept. 8th, not 15th as it said on its press site. "Moving target" was quite prescient then!
