No zombies for the Emirates, then.

The National Media Council of the United Arab Emirates has banned Dead Rising 2 from officially going on sale in the country.

According to the game’s distributor in the country, Pluto Games, it was banned for having “violence, gambling and nudity,” as well as the use of alcohol.

Pluto says it “looks unlikely” the ban on the Blue Castle zombie romp will be lifted, although it is trying.

Shame. Good game, going by the reviews for it.

Dead Rising 2’s out now in the UK for PS3 and 360. It’s out on PC this Friday.

Thanks, MEGamers.
