Dead Rising is coming to the Wii, with hack and slash gameplay

One of my favorite games on the X-Box 360 is coming to the Wii! “Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop” follows the story of “Frank West, an overly zealous freelance journalist on a hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. In pursuit of a juicy lead, he makes his way to the small suburban town of Willamette only to find that it has become overrun by zombies. Frank escapes to the local shopping mall” where the real fun begins (Source: IGN).

While the graphics might not be as slick as they were on the 360, the Wii offers a way for gamers to enter the zombie infested mall in a whole new way as you’ll have to hack/slash and point/shoot the Wii controller at the flesh eaters to survive. With 10,000 zombies coming at you, I can only imagine how tired your arm will be after a few hours of gameplay. Keep reading to watch a video showcasing the gameplay (gory/graphic violence).

The game is expected to come out in the first half of 2009. Click the thumbnails below for larger images from the game, or visit IGN for a full screen capture gallery.
