Dead Rising Was "Too Japanese"

Illustration for article titled Dead Rising Was Too Japanese

Man, Dead Rising was great. Was a little quirky, though. You could put that down to the fact it was about zombies and public bathrooms, but the game's developers have a simpler explanation.


"The first Dead Rising was built in a very Japanese style", Capcom's Shinsaku Ohara told CVG. "We had some help from America, but basically it was all done in a Japan. We wanted to do it better for a Western audience this time."

"Together, we've come up with crazier ideas than we did in the first game. What we didn't quite manage in Dead Rising 1 was that it still felt too Japanese. We're much closer to feeling like a Western game with this title."


Too Japanese? I wouldn't say too Japanese, but the game certainly had some interesting characteristics, which I guess is what he's talking about (the upgrade system and photography sections, for example). So long as that's all they tweak, ad don't mess with the game's humour, we'll be all good.
