Capcom announced solid release dates for all of its major Xbox 360 titles at today’s “Capcom Title Premiere For Xbox 360″ press conference.
Well, all but Dead Rising 2, that is. The highly anticipated zombie carnage sequel is still with a general 2010 release date. Here’s the poster that was distributed at the press conference.
The title can be read “Shibyou Osen Dead Rising,” or literally “Death Disease Contamination Dead Rising.” (”Shibyou” is the Japanese name for the infection in the Dead Rising story that turns people into zombies. I’ll update the name once I find the English version.)
Text at the top of the poster proclaims this to be Dead Rising producer Keiji Inafune’s debut as a director.
The live action movie is set in an area of Japan that has been quarantined following the spread of the disease that turns everyone into zombies. The story follows brothers Shin and Jouji who must escape from a town full of zombies.
Inafune directed the the movie and also worked on the script along with Makoto Ikehara. The movie is being produced by Capcom and Digital Frontier.
