Much anticipated Capcom title Dead Rising 2 will now not be shown at this year's E3 thanks to a Swine Flu outbreak in Osaka, Japan, Capcom told Kotaku.
What does the flu have to do with zombies? Seriously... I mean come on, that's going a little too far. Maybe some one has watched too many movies or something. I think this is a little ridiculous. That's cool and all to have an imagination but when it becomes a problem to gamers, that we won't see a game because of it. It kind of pisses me off. In real life I don't see the connection enough.
Wow H1N1 keeps Dead Rising from E3......I have officialy heard it all.
Swine Flu is serious business in japan. Bummer. But atleast all of their other games will be there.
Yeah, this is BS! I've been saying all along this game is looking like a massacre of the original and both Blue Castle and Capcom are not confident so they are going to hide this thing and try to sell it on name alone.. The devs are in Canada! Funny, how every other Capcom title will be there. This was one of the top games I wanted to see at E3. E3 just keeps looking more and more lame by the day.
Thought the same when I heard Rockstar wasn't going to show any new games, Bungie can't show the new game, and some others also missing if I recall just can't remember the names.
I think this is a little ridiculous This sounds like the decision of someone who's letting their imagination defeat them. And now they're making it our problem. Either that, or it's just a cover up to not show the game for a different reason.
So stupid. Its just like any other flu. The only people that have dies were either young children or old people. The ones always susceptible to viruses and such. The media just LOVES throwing things out of proportion.
May be Capcom know something we don't about the flu.... Ready your shotguns folks, we're going to need 'em.
