    The game is set a few years after the events of the original Dead Rising. The zombie virus that originated in Santa Cabeza has spread all over the United States. The game will take place in the fictional city of Fortune City, which is modeled after the real city of Reno, Nevada. The new protagonist and player character, Chuck Greene, is a former national motocross champion who is caught in the zombie attack on Fortune City.


    Gameplay

    An early design of the protagonist and player character of Dead Rising 2, Chuck Greene.The gameplay remains similar to Dead Rising with the player controlling protagonist, Chuck Greene, as he fights off hordes of zombies while accomplishing specific missions. The game will include several new objects that can be used to attack the zombies, including slot machines, a giant hamster ball, spiked propane tanks, and others. The number of zombies which can be seen onscreen at any one time has also been dramatically increased from 800 in the original to roughly 7,000. According to Inafune, the new protagonist will be more "interesting" than the previous hero, Frank West.

    There will also be a greater variety of missions for the player to undertake, and the sequel will retain the original's time management mechanic. However, the original game's photography mechanic will not be present in Dead Rising 2.

    Multiplayer
    Speaking at CAPTIVATE '09, Keiji Inafune confirmed that Dead Rising 2 will include multiplayer, but refused to state what the mode would entail. "We’re at a point in game history that you need to have some form of multiplayer component in a game. Single-player alone is not going to cut it. So rest assured we are going to put multiplayer in the game, but I can’t go into specifics about what type of multiplayer as that directly relates to some of the game systems that we don’t want to talk about at this event. It will be online multiplayer, so keep that in mind."


    Development
    The sequel was announced on February 9, 2009, confirming earlier rumors of the game's existence, as well as a viral video for the game. The developers Blue Castle Games will be working with Keiji Inafune, the game's producer and Capcom's global head of research and development, along with other Dead Rising team members.

    In March of 2009, in an interview with website MajorNelson.com, Chris Kramer mentioned that Dead Rising 2 would be released in fiscal year 09/10 (April 1, 2009 until May 31, 2010
