Capcom Vancouver’s Twitter feed has been a buzz with Dead Rising promotional material for a couple of months now, showing off classic moments from the franchise as well as directing us towards the upcoming second live action instalment. However, it seems this buzz wasn’t just about nostalgia but also about getting us in the mood for a new game in the zombie slaying, open-world series.
Yesterday, ThisGenGaming reported receiving images showing some art from Dead Rising 4 as well as the title screen and an in-game image. This is after the site initially reported on the rumours of Dead Rising 4 the previous week based off information coming from NeoGaf user Ekim. This leaked information was then confirmed by Kotaku News Editor, Jason Schreier in a Tweet as well as a post on Kotaku.
Ekim went on to say in a Tweet that Dead Rising 4 will be a remake of the original title, this time set at Christmas time and will allow you to explore the surrounding area of the mall as well as the mall itself. Furthermore, Dead Rising 4 will feature four player coop.
There’s also been speculation that Dead Rising 4 will once again be an exclusive for Microsoft, launching on Xbox One and possibly PC. This rumour has been further strengthen by PlayStationLifeStyle whose source has said that the title will not be coming to PS4.
The evidence is certainly building for Dead Rising 4’s reveal next week during E3. Our money is on it featuring within Xbox’s conference on Monday, and we can’t wait.
