Original Dead Rising Is Coming To Current Gen Consoles And PC

It was hinted at over the weekend, but now we have official confirmation: a port of the original Dead Rising is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Not only that, but there are also plans to bring the sequel, Dead Rising 2, to current generation consoles as well.

It all started yesterday when trophy and achievement site Exophase, which showed trophies for a possible PlayStation 4 version of the game. Cacpom later confirmed with Eurogamer that yes, the game would be coming to not just the PlayStation 4, but also the PC and Xbox One. “Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4 and PC”, the company said in a statement. “In addition, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4. We will have more news to share soon.” For those that don’t know, Off The Record is a non-canonical retelling of Dead Rising 2, which stars the first game’s protagonist Frank West. No word on whether Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, a mini prequel of sort that takes place before the events of the sequel, or Case West, which takes place after the events of the second game and lets players play as either Frank West or Chuck Greene will also be included.

There’s also no word on whether the last game in the series, Dead Rising 3, will also be making the to the PlayStation 4 as well, since it’s already out on the PC and Xbox One. For now though, this news is definetly exciting, and for those who own a PlayStation 4 but never played the original game, you’re certainly in for a treat. There’s no word on when players will be able to slay zombies at the mall, but for now, the latest game in the series: Dead Rising 4, will release on December 6th for the Xbox One and PC (and possibly the PlayStation 4).
