Dead Rising for the Wii

More news about the Wii version of Dead Rising. After initial concerns over not enough zombies, we’re told they’ll fit up to 100 on screen at once.

Dead Rising Wii version

Dead Rising’s coming to the Wii. This isn’t the sequel but a version of the original on the 360. Let’s hope they’ve changed the save system or there will be a lot of Wii remotes being hurled through windows. Related: Capcom sued over Dead Rising
