Dead Rising US date adjusted

Bludgeon the undead back a bit.

Capcom's zombie hackandslash Dead Rising is now due out sometime this summer in the US of States, says Capcom's American website. It had been due out in May.

Apparently that's not a change as such though: a Capcom rep told GameSpot that May had been more of an approximation than a firm date anyway. Tsk!

Meanwhile over here Capcom Eurosoft's press site still lists the game as "TBC 2006", so it seems fair to say that it's still a bit of a way off as a whole, then.

Still, it was in enough of a shape to be playable at the Tokyo Game Show in September, where we spent a good fifteen minutes struggling through a sea of zombies in a shopping centre, blowing them up with shotguns, whacking them with all manner of bats and trying to escort civilians out of their way.

The game seems to work on a kind of two-layered approach, where most of the zombs just mill around and the ones closest to you lurch into play as you near. Works quite well - and the 360 can draw tons of them at once.

Soon as we hear anything else, we'll eat your mum.
