Dead Rising Wii Gets Solid Release Date

7
Capcom today confirmed a February 27 North American release for Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, the Wii remake of its zombie-massacring Xbox 360 title Dead Rising

The same date also applies to Europe, according to the publisher. As February 27 is a Friday, and North American releases usually ship on a Monday or Tuesday, the game could arrive on Wednesday, February 25 if retailers are not given a hard street date.

Other Capcom releases for the first half of 2009 include Street Fighter IV (PS3, 360) on February 17 and Resident Evil 5 (PS3, 360) on March 13, Bionic Commando, the downloadable UFO animal-herding game Flock! (PC, PS3, 360), and MotoGP Wii.

As previously reported, the promised PC releases of Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando will arrive after the console editions, while rumors continue to circulate regarding the unannounced-but-likely PC release of Resident Evil 5.

      Nothing new since those rumors of a sequel that'd hit both PS3 and Xbox 360, at least. Given that Capcom said no exclusives a while back and keeps teasing that more Dead Rising is on the way, that seems really likely.
