Dead Rising Headed to Wii

Gaming Today

One of my favorite Xbox 360 games, Dead Rising, is getting ported to Nintendo’s waggle-happy system, according to the latest issue of Famitsu. And I do mean ported — this isn’t a spinoff or sequel, which may or may not be a good thing. It’ll be interesting to see how Capcom handles the conversion on a number of levels, specifically in terms of visuals, controls, and gore.

The port comes as a result of the sales of Resident Evil 4 on Wii, which apparently were sufficient enough to warrant yet another Capcom zombie game for the system. (We’re up to three, by my count.)

We’ll have more on the game as word officially makes its way to our shores.

I’m just waiting for an awesome game to come out (on any platform) that ISN’T rated M. I hate not being able to play the majority of good games that come out. It seems as if developers think that no one will buy a game that’s not rated M!

@StinkDude1: Lol, thats so true. But there are good games that are E rated, like Supreme Commander.
