Photograph the unfolding horror at the Willamette Mall while beating zombies to a second death with anything you can get your hands on, now using the Wii Remote.
Though E3 is tearing up America this week, on the other side of the world Famitsu Weekly has revealed a Wii port of Capcom's acclaimed Xbox 360 horror title, Dead Rising. The Wii version is currently about 40% complete and is mostly unchanged from the 360 original. The only major gameplay modifications being made are in the game's controls.
Dead Rising will utilize the Wii Remote in much the same way as previous ports of titles from other systems; players will now use the pointer functionality to aim Frank West's camera along with any of the guns he acquires. The sniper rifle will require players to move the view in broad strokes with the control stick on the Nunchuk, while a simple shake will reload ammunition. Swinging the Wii Remote will be used to control the baseball bat and chainsaw. Finally, when players are attacked by zombies, they can literally shake them off with a gesture of the Wii Remote.
The game will be titled Dead Rising: Zombie no Ikenie (meaning "Zombie Sacrifice") in Japan. There is currently no word on a launch date, or the prospect of a release outside of Japan.
