Dead Rising creator Keiji Inafune has assured fans that Dead Rising 2, despite being made in North America, won’t betray the ‘flavor’ of the original Japanese game.

“[Blue Castle Games] really understood the Japanese flavor that made Dead Rising so unique,” he said in the latest Capcom podcast, adding that the original team is still highly involved.

“They showed me that they are serious about making a game that keeps that Capcom ‘spice’ intact, and so far it’s going very well.”

Inafune refused to mention any further juicy details, but did say that the new lead character will be more interesting than Frank West.
