A few days ago Capcom announced that Dead Rising was being brought over onto the Wii. In an official press release they've added a subtitle to its name, so now it's called Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.
Christian Svensson from Capcom has stated that it's not a port as we originally thought, but created from the ground up using the same engine as Resident Evil 4 (Wii version). Hopefully that will address the clunky aiming system that featured in the original, because it pretty much ruined the game.
They're also improving on the "save" functionality, meaning you probably won't have to go find a restroom just to save the game.
On the flip side, in Wii's version there will be significantly less zombies on the screen. To make up for this, the zombies may act more aggressively. Judging by the screens, there's still quite a lot of them though.
He's behind you!
As expected, you'll control Frank using the Nunchuk and Wiimote. The remote's motion sensing capabilities will be used to aim and shoot firearms, throw or swing melee weapons and shake off zombies when they grab you (cool!).
Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop should come out later this year, sometime during the fourth quarter.
