Dead Rising 2 teaser site and box art revealed

The blood-drenched zombiepocalypse actioner Dead Rising 2 has a new community site,, where fans can learn more about four of the game’s characters and “discover exclusive content.” You can create an account with social media-type functions (profile! followers!) and register to win as-yet unspecified stuff. There are also sections to submit weapon ideas and vote for favorite weapons, which should be active soon.
