There has been a bit of controversy surrounding the state of multiplayer action in Dead Rising 2. First there’s no mention of it, then a rep from mental mill (the middleware developer for the title) let it slip that it was indeed in the game. Shortly thereafter another mental mill rep tells us that the last guy misspoke. All of this over multiplayer? Sheesh. Not sure why it was such a huge secret, but Capcom development head Keiji Inafune finally confirmed once and for all that there will be online multiplayer. Now was that so hard?
In other related Dead Rising 2 news, there’s an awesome new trailer for the game. Left 4 Dead is a great zombie game, but you don’t get to strap two chainsaws to a stick or wear a moose head. I can’t wait. Check out the trailer after the jump.
