X10: Dead Rising 2 Dated + Pre-Launch Prologue

Capcom has officially announced the release date of Dead Rising 2.  You’ll be able to start slaying zombies on August 31st in North America and September 3rd in Europe.  Also Announced

Dead Rising fans, this is the news that you have all been waiting for! We’re incredibly excited to let you folks know that we now have confirmed release dates for Dead Rising 2: the game will be released in North America on August 31st, Japan on September 2nd and Europe on September 3rd for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

In addition, Xbox 360 fans will be able to download an exclusive prologue, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero shortly before Dead Rising 2’s release.

This prologue will introduce main protagonist and former motocross champion Chuck Greene and provide a link between the original game and the events that await players in the gambling paradise of Fortune City.

Dead Rising was a success for the Xbox 360 early in its life and I’m sure the sequel will do even better as its set to release on the Xbox 360 as well as the PS3 this time around.  I for one am glad to hear this one is waiting until end of summer to launch because I’ll be spending all summer catching up on the great titles that are releasing Q1 2010.
