Capcom Unearths Dead Rising Remastered Details
After rumors and speculation, Capcom has officially revealed a release date for their remastering of the Dead Rising games. Turns out it’s not that far away, as the release date for all three games, Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 the spin-off, Off the Record is coming to stores Sept. 13 for $19.99 each on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In a press release straight from Capcom, the publisher states 2016 marks the series’ 10th anniversary and these bundled ports are to celebrate. In addition to three installments of Dead Rising coming for the first time on the current generation, the first game will be coming to PC for the very first time via Steam. All three titles will return to take advantage of the current gen hardware systems, bringing the horror comedy experiences up to 1080p at 60 fps. Each new version of the game will also include all of the additional previously released DLC costumes.
All three titles are also available as a pre-order bundle for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $49.99. In North America, a physical release of Dead Rising will be available on Sept. 13 and a physical release of Dead Rising 2 will be available on Sept. 27.
If you haven’t touched any of the Dead Rising games before, it’s an entertaining series with its own cartoonish style. You are stuck in your standard zombie apocalypse scenario with hundreds of undead gnawing at your ankles, but these games make fighting them am interesting romp where you can put together elaborate improvised weapons like chainsaws taped to kayak paddles or other silly combinations. They’re alternatives to more self-serious zombie games and with a fourth installment set to come out December, it’s an alternative that won’t be going away anytime soon.
