Coming to a Wii System near you, Capcom has officially announced Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop. The originally Xbox360 horror action game will include Wii-mote handgun aiming and a new more ‘seamless’ saving system.
Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop is expected to arrive in North America this winter, and will use the same engine as the console’s version of Resident Evil 4.
Chop Till You Drop follows the harrowing tale of Frank West, an overly zealous freelance journalist on a hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. In pursuit of a juicy lead, he makes his way to the small suburban town of Willamette only to find that it has become overrun by zombies. Frank escapes to the local shopping mall, thinking it will be a bastion of safety but it turns out to be anything but.
Capcom has said this version of the game will be “split into a series of individual cases, all of which Frank must complete in order to gain vital information that will allow him to piece together the truth behind the horrendous epidemic,” seeming to imply that the original’s consistent three-day timeline has been abandoned.
