Yet more Capcom news, fresh out of Captivate 09, the yearly Capcom gathering in Monaco where everything is yellow and blue.

Eurogamer are reporting that Capcom Research and Development supremo, Keiji Inafune, confirmed that Dead Rising 2 will have a multiplayer mode.

"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."

Inafune was also quoted as saying, "we're at a point in game history that you need to have some form of multiplayer component in a game." We're presuming he hasn't played The Darkness online then *shudders*

Let's just hope he's talking some form of online co-op mode and not some tacked on competitive mode that seems to be par for the course these days.
