Fortune City is a city in Nevada, and it is the setting of Dead Rising 2. It is not Las Vegas. This is known by the fact that Las Vegas is present in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero even after being infested by zombies and Tyrone King notes the difference between the two at the very beginning of Dead Rising 2 ("They've taken Willamette and Las Vegas...").
Like many cities in Nevada, Fortune City is popular for its casinos. It has 4 main casinos, 3 malls, 1 food court, 1 hotel and 1 arena. It also has a secret underground research facility which is equipped with a safehouse and strip of its own.
