Dead Rising Wii TGS build just a tech demo, says Capcom

Monday, 20th October 2008 08:59 GMT By Mike

Seth Killian, Capcom community senior manager, has said that the Dead Rising Wii build shown at TGS “was mostly just a tech demo” and is in now way representative of the finished product, NintendoEverything reports.

“The TGS ‘build’ was mostly just a tech demo and is not the actual or final game, guys,” said Killian.

“I believe the situation is this: 1) the final game is almost done. 2) the final game is NOT the tech demo shown at Leipzig or TGS,” he went on. “The tech demo is a tech demo, and is not the final game.

“No press or media have yet seen the version of the game that Nikai was talking about when he said it was basically done. Someone at Capcom said there would be a new version of the game at TGS because that was the plan, but for reasons I dunno the details on, it didn’t happen.”

    Hey if it’s good enough for Sony with the Motorstorm 2 demo, it’s good enough for Capcom.

    I love the Wii version. It’s like going to the Victoria Centre in Reading early on a sunday morning. ie deserted save for the odd shambling zombie.
