The downloadable preview of sorts for Dead Rising 2, Case Zero, was originally set to be released tomorrow, August 30, exclusively on the Xbox Live Marketplace. That release has now been delayed -- in Japan, at least. The announcement wasn't especially specific about what the problem was, but according to Andriasang, it was due to content that has been deemed to be inappropriate for a free version of the game. Case Zero itself will cost 400 Microsoft Points ($5), but there will also be a trial version as there is of all Xbox Live Arcade games. Case Zero bridges the story between Dead Rising 1 and 2 and sets up the events of DR2 as protagonist Chuck Greene attempts to save his daughter who has been bitten by a zombie. The only way for Greene to keep her alive is to routinely inject her with a vaccine called Zombrex, something that he had until his car (along with the Zombrex) was stolen. The delay was announced by Capcom Japan, and it's entirely possible that it will only affect that region. Regardless, Capcom did tell Famitsu that the delay won't impact the release of Dead Rising 2 proper, which is coming to North America on September 28 and Japan on September 30. This sounds like a Japan-only delay, but we've contacted Capcom to find out if the delay will also apply in North America and will report back as soon as we know.[/p] Source Not that I really care, I thought the first Dead Rising was really quite awful. Once you get past the novelty humor of beating up zombies with silly things and Frank West as a character, it's a poorly controlled, highly repetitive, and thoroughly boring game.
