72 hours to kill… Thousands of zombies… What would Chuck do?”

DR2 was the long-awaited canonical sequel to Capcom’s surprise hit, succeeded by the non-canon Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It had several quality of life improvements over the original game, but does it deserve to be considered as much of a classic?

The premise is very similar to OtR, where the main character has to clear his name after being framed for an explosion in Fortune City that frees the zombies gathered for the Terror is Reality pay-per-view event.

Cyber Sub-Zero defeated Noob, and then Nightwolf arrived to fight Quan Chi.

He defeated Quan, but he fled through a portal. Nightwolf nullified the soulnado by throwing Noob into it. But Raiden’s Kamidogu amulet continued to shatter. He departed Earthrealm to meet with the Elder Gods and put Nightwolf in charge of the Earthrealm defense.

Mortal Kombat 9 Part Four: Rhapsody in Jade

Ermac is disturbed by Sub-Zero’s fight against Cyrax. When Jax tries to attack Ermac, he uses telekinesis to make Jax’s arms explode.
I can safely say that this game’s story mode is harder than that of Injustice: Gods Among Us, probably to throw back to the series’ arcade roots.

Goro said that he didn’t expect to fight in this tournament at all. He promised to give Liu Kang a warrior’s death, but the Shaolin monk bested the giant.
