A bunch of info hit today on Dead Rising 2. Seems it’s set in part of some kind of zombie-killing game/reality show. Details are still unknown as far as the single player campaign, but IGN has a multiplayer preview and says its “American Gladiators meets Night of the Living Dead.” WTF? I don’t know how I feel about this… There’s a trailer and some gameplay vids after the break — and I have to admit, the pitchfork-shotgun in the single player video is just awesome. (IGN plus Giant Bomb and Zombie-o-matic for additional vids)

And Kotaku got into the question of duct tape in Dead Rising 2. Apparently, there’s a lot of it. They also have a screenshot gallery with some plot speculation and a brief hands-on preview. And more video. Ye gods, enough already! (Kotaku)

There’s an upcoming book called Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection and io9 has a preview. Or you could just skip straight to the publisher’s preview and read a few pages. (io9)

Danielle Harris has been cast as Barbara in the forthcoming 3D CGI Night of the Living Dead: Origins movie. (Brutal as Hell)
