Capcom bringing Dead Rising to Wii

Detractors be damned, Capcom is again porting an old game to Wii.

As revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu, Kotaku is reporting today Capcom is bringing Dead Rising to Wii. Like Okami and Resident Evil 4 before it, Dead Rising appears to be a direct and unaltered port on Wii.

Originally released for Xbox 360 in Aug. 2006, Dead Rising follows the harrowing adventures of Frank West, a photographer trapped inside a shopping mall in a zombie-infested Colorado town. Players control West as he uses surrounding objects to brutalize zombie scum, save survivors and uncover the reasons for the undead infestation.

No release date was specified. Expect more from Capcom soon.
