Zombrex Dead Rising Sun: A movie, by Capcom

Oh, Capcom. You’ve got quite the double-header here. Not only are you creating a motion picture inspired by the Dead Rising universe, but you’re making it available for free!

We’ve gotten our hands on the trailer for Zombrex Dead Rising Sun, which will be released digitally in a series of eight episodes later this year.

Yep, that’s dubbed English audio. In answer to the inevitable question about subs vs. dubs – we don’t know if there’ll be a Japanese audio version of this released (with or without English subtitles), but we have been promised French, Spanish and Italian subtitles if you prefer your undead a little more European.

In case you hadn’t picked it, Zombrex Dead Rising Sun pays homage to the classic zombie flicks of the 60s and 70s, tied together with links to the world of Dead Rising.

Capcom‘s global head of research and development, Keiji Inafune, is trying his had at writing and directing, telling the story of two brothers trying to escape the zombie outbreak that has hit Japan. Cliched? Yes, but what else did you expect, really?

We’ll be keeping an eye on this one, and hoping that one of “North America” and “Europe” can be stretched to include Australia. We love zombies down here too, and this one looks squarely in the “so bad it’s good” category we adore.
