Following the Dead Rising 2 trailer that recently hit the net, Eurogamer has reported Capcom's Keiji Inafune has confirmed that the title will indeed feature multiplayer, speaking from Captivate 09 last week.
"We're at a point in game history that you need to have some form of multiplayer component in a game," Inafune said.
"Single player alone is not going to cut it. So rest assured we are going to put multiplayer in the game, but I can't go into specifics about what type of multiplayer as that directly relates to some of the game systems that we don't want to talk about at this event. It will be online multiplayer, so keep that in mind."
A few other pieces of information were also revealed, including that the new engine being used is able to draw up to 7,000 zombies on screen at once, compared to 500 from the original installment.
