More Dead Rising on the Way, Teases Capcom

As Capcom readies the Wii edition of its zombie-slaying action title Dead Rising (360), the publisher has begun hinting that more Dead Rising titles are on the way, including a possible PlayStation 3 release.

"You haven't seen the last of Dead Rising," Capcom's John Diamonon wrote in the comments section of the official PlayStation blog, responding to a fan's complaint that the original Dead Rising only arrived on Xbox 360.

Released in 2006, Dead Rising put players in the role of photojournalist Frank West as he attempted to survive 72 hours in a zombie-infested mall, with the option of rescuing numerous survivors. Rumors of a multi-platform sequel have long circulated, though until now, there has been little evidence to indicate another effort is in development.
