Blue Castle Developing Dead Rising 2, Coming To PS3?

The original Dead Rising was a solid Xbox 360 exclusive that involved a whole lot of zombie slaying with a host of grisly tools (like a lawnmower). Of course, ever since then, publisher Capcom has reinforced its multiplatform focus for the new generation now that the PlayStation 3 has come into its own. Hence, can we believe the sequel will be available on the PS3?

According to Eurogamer, "a source close to Canadian developer Blue Castle Games" has said the studio is currently working on Dead Rising 2. We heard this rumor before, and although Capcom still hasn't officially confirmed anything, the source in question said: "Everyone's really excited; the team has obviously seen the rumours and it's been hard to keep quiet, but they can't wait to show off the game." If you're not familiar with Blue Castle, they've already provided us with The Bigs and MLB Front Office Manager, and the developer describes themselves as a "full-service, multi-project and multi-platform third-party developer." The only other hint is in regards to their upcoming projects; there are three, and one of them is an "unannounced Action title." ...yeah, if everything turns out to be true, that title is going to be the long-awaited sequel to Dead Rising. Let's hope they don't stray from the formula too much, because the original got most things right.

Anyway, we're about 75% certain that this sequel will come to Sony's console. It was a unique situation the first time around; the PS3 wasn't even out yet, and Capcom's multiplatform reinforcement has been reflected in its projects (Devil May Cry 4, Resident Evil 5, etc.). We'll let you know when/if the announcement arrives.

I get what your saying but a lot of ppl are play Resistance 2 w/o playing Resistance 1. And I don't think Dead Rising had a noteworthy plot.

Capcom should stick to Xbox and Wii. All their PS3 releases have lack luster play and looks. Just look at the MotoGP videos to see what I mean.

Devil May Cry 4 looked good but was old school playability and definetly did not push the system (reminded me of Ninja Gaiden, you know how it felt old school, old style). Lets hope they do better with RE5.

They should use blu-ray capacity to make the PS3 version more massive.

Dead Rising and GoW were my only reasons to buy a 360, it wasn't enough, but if they bring it to the PS3, then i could cast the 360 away totally. Please make it great on the PS3. The saving issues from the 1st game plagued the gameplay a lot.

While I haven't finished the first one quite yet, the whole countdown timer was definitely annoying - here's hoping they make it more of a truly open world game without those silly restrictions.

To those crying for a port of the original, I feel ya. But hey, at least the PS3 isn't getting the horrible DR "port" for the Wii - seriously, it totally loses the spirit of the original.

Dead Rising was def. the best 360 game at the time. The only problem was that I could never read a thing anyone was saying :(. I hope they don't do that again for this one
