Details have emerged from leading developer Capcom, confirming that they will go into partnership with Playboy magazine to bring some iconic content from the publication into it’s forthcoming title – Dead Rising 2, available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC later on this year.
The system follows the evolution of the book system that was present in the original Dead Rising game, and players who find the hidden Playboy magazine will receive an upgrade for leading character Chuck Green. But that is not all, Playboy will be featured on billboards during the games progress that will show specially selected issues from the magazine’s 57-year-history.
Capcom’s Senior Director of Licencing, Seon King stated that the ”Sin City-type environment in Dead Rising 2, Fortune City, is a natural playground for the Playboy Bunnies.” But in all honesty, do you think the integration of Playboy and Zombies is a good mix? Dusk Till Dawn anyone?
