Dead Rising 2 Ships 2 Million Copies

Capcom announced today that their sequel to the million-plus selling Dead Rising has shipped over 2 million units globally, which amounts to over 4 million copies of the Dead Rising franchise shipped to date. Capcom credits this success to the “successful collaboration between Capcom and Vancouver based developer Blue Castle Games.”

Capcom takes it even further by stating the legality of it’s attempts to acquire Blue Castle Games:

Further to the announcement of the acquisition of Blue Castle Games at Tokyo Games Show, Capcom is extremely pleased to confirm that this acquisition has now been ratified by the Canadian authorities, with this wholly owned subsidiary being known as Capcom Game Studio Vancouver.

I see big things in the horizon for Capcom Game Studio Vancouver, but I don’t think we should kid ourselves, Canada has fallen victim to the Japanese overlords.
