Altogether Dead Rising 1 & 2 has tallied up 4 million. Capcom's purchase of Blue Castle Games has been okay'd by the Canadian government.
Unlike Capcom's other western investments - Dead Rising 2 has actually proved a resounding success for them. In fact this new zombie strain of Frank West and Chuck Greene is so good Keiji Inafune wants it to 'replace' Resident Evil as their lead.
Capcom even saw great success with Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, a prequel to the full Dead Rising 2. They've announced Case West which sees Chuck Greene and Frank West meeting up and taking on the undead menace. Dead Rising 3 is assured then?
