Capcom Announces High Stakes Edition for Dead Rising 2

I’ve always been a fan of zombies, whether shooting them in the head in video games or watching them stagger around looking for braaaains in cheesy B-rated horror flicks. The story of the dead walking the world has been around long before you and I were ever here. The idea of being overrun by a horde of the once-living is a bit creepy in my book, but have you ever considered that maybe the zombie apocalypse happens because the Devil just decided to kick the lazy ones out of Hell? Meh. Maybe we’ll never know.

I guess we will just have to enjoy ourselves in the greatness that is survival horror games in the meantime, and with that said, Capcom is bringing us quite the delicious basket of goodies for Dead Rising 2. The Dead Rising 2 High Stakes Edition includes the full game, costume and skills DLC, a poker set and an array of Dead Rising and Fortune City-themed items that make the free stuff you get for joining casinos in Vegas look like toys from McDonald’s (no offense, McD). One lucky Charlie Bucket will receive a golden ticket and a chance for a 6 foot tall zombie replica.

The Dead Rising 2 High Stakes Edition is available for pre-order now, only at the Capcom Online Store. Supplies are limited so get there while the gettin’ is good and have the game in your hands on the day of the game’s release on September 28, 2010.
