THQ, Australian distributor for all things Capcom, have successfully managed to pull Dead Rising 2
through the Australian Classification Board without the need for a single change and a solid MA15+ rating.
The game is currently scheduled to arrive on PC at a TBA date with PS3 and Xbox 360 this September 30. An exclusive prequel will be arriving as DLC on Xbox 360 called "Case Zero" that offers story junkies a bit more to the overall DR2 narrative, as well as the ability to reach a certain PP level and carry it across to the full game upon its release. There's currently no date for Case Zero though, so stay tuned.
