Capcom have announced that its zombie killer sequel Dead Rising 2 is coming to Europe earlier than planned.

The game will now be in stores for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 24th and for the PC on September 28th.

The release dates for all platforms in North America and Japan remain unchanged at September 28th and September 30th respectively.

It's nice to see gamers in Europe getting something before their American and Japanese friends.
