At Sony’s press conference yesterday, besides showing off some exciting prospects for Resistance 2, they also showed another installment in the franchise, heading for the PSP. Resistance: Retribution will be set during the Chimera outbreak, and will follow the story of James, who had to kill his brother inside a Chimera conversion center. He is now on a mission to destroy as many conversion centers as possible. The game has been set for a Spring 2009 release date.
Capcom announced at E3 also that its widely successful survival horror game, Dead Rising, would be heading for the Wii. The game would be another direct port in line with games like Okami and Resident Evil 4, both also from Capcom. The game tells the story of a paparazzi photographer trapped in a mall full with zombies. No release date has been set. Anyone speak Japanese? If you can, you’re probably not reading what I’m typing.
