Update: Get new shots and video here.

Capcom’s just announced it’s releasing Dead Rising 2 in Europe for September 3, with a August 31 launch in North America.

Capcom’s also announced a playable prologue between the original game and the sequel known as Case Zero, which will be a 360 exclusive.

The prequel to DR2 will be stand alone and will entire consist of content not found in the game.

Last month, Capcom said it would be releasing the title in this calendar year. But now we know exactly when. Happy days.

Some new screens were also released from the company, which we’ll try and get to you as soon as possible.

    So, how is this prologue going to work? Will it be like a free download before the games release or something? If so, I think that is a genius idea- give gamers a free taste of the story so that they are motivated to play the game when it comes out. More games should do that!

    Oh, and RGW:

    Since you seem to hate every game mentioned on this site besides Dante’s Inferno, what do you play?

    The prologue thing is a weird idea – not launch-day DLC, but pre-launch content? I wonder if it’ll be a playable demo containing stuff that’s not in the full game, a bit like that original Heavy Rain demo?
