Dead Rising 2: Case 0 Delayed

Xbox 360 exclusive download Dead Rising 2: Case 0 was slated for download release on August 31. It won't be making that date.

UPDATE: Capcom has now confirmed Case Zero is only delayed in Japan. Its Western release remains unaffected.

In an official statement, Capcom's Japanese headquarters has stated that the game is going to be delayed. The reason for the delay is elements were discovered in the trial version that are not appropriate for a free demo.

The game has been delayed so that these issues can be rectified. Capcom has not explicitly stated what exactly needs to be corrected. The company also did not provide a new release date for the game.

Kotaku has contacted Capcom to determine whether this will impact the game's Western release.

Priced at 400 Microsoft Points, prologue Dead Rising 2: Case 0 is set between Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2 and fills in the gaps between the two games.

Retail game Dead Rising 2 will be out in late September.

    "The reason for the delay is elements were discovered in the trial version that are not appropriate for a free demo."

    What part of 'Costs 400 microsoft points' exactly qualifies this as a 'free demo' exactly? I mean I know it's only a handful of dollars, but doesn't FREE imply ZERO dollars here?

      It's an XBLA game, so there will also be a trial version, ie. a free demo, in addition to the full 400 Point game.

    Does this effect Aussies as well David?

    “The reason for the delay is elements were discovered in the trial version that are not appropriate for a free demo.”

    "I mean, we actually had no countdown timer, no missing level segments, no missing characters, actual levels from the full game...you can understand why we need to remedy this, right?"

    DAMMIT I was looking forward to playing it sometime this week. I hope its not too close to the release date of Dead Rising 2.

    might want to update that its only delayed it japan even capcom have released update saying japan only US/EU dates still same

    just seen the same story on joystiq and they have updated the story with "English version on track for Aug. 31"

    Noooooooo!!! Oh well, at least I've got Mafia II to fill the void. Dead Rising was the first game that showed the promise of the current generation. I am eager to see the promise fully realised!
