Unlike the first Dead Rising, which was developed internally at Capcom and exclusive to Xbox 360 and followed years later by a TOSE-helmed Wii de-make, Dead Rising 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with development marking a "collaboration" between the original team and The BIGS developer Blue Castle Games.
And, hey, bonus, Capcom also passed along word of a new live-action film based off the franchise, dubbed Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun, with a wonderful trailer just below: BOOM video 3787
