Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Delayed in Japan, Still Coming to North America and Europe Tomorrow

Dead Rising 2's upcoming XBLA-exclusive prologue, Case Zero, has been pushed from its original release date in Japan. Andriasang reports that the delay is due to undisclosed "violent" content sneaking its way into the game's free trial, which is funny considering the nature of the product as a whole.

The questionable content will still available in the full version of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero when it eventually launches. According to Famitsu, the delay for the downloadable title will not affect the release date for the full retail Dead Rising sequel in the region.


Capcom reassured fans on this side of the Pacific that the Dead Rising 2: Case Zero delay was only isolated to Japanese gamers. The downloadable title will launch on the Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow in North America and Europe for 400 Microsoft Points ($5). Dead Rising 2 will launch on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 28, 2010.
