After last week’s desperate front page announcement that Dead Rising 2 would feature a hero named Chuck Greene, it’s nice to be able to deliver some real, substantive news about the game. Without further delay, check out the brand new trailer:

Dead Rising 2 might be going a little overboard with the chainsaws.

It’s a fun trailer, and although there aren’t really any huge surprises, it looks like our hero might be protecting his own child this time around. Also, Chuck Greene looks much more nimble than Frank West, which hopefully means an upgrade for the first game’s often sluggish controls.

Expect to wield a giant gun that shoots chainsaws some time in 2010.
