There’s quite a loyal following for Dead Rising protagonist, and zombie killing extraordinaire, Frank West. The photo journalist has starred in a substantial amount of games — he can most recently be found putting up his dukes against the likes of Capt. America and other Marvel heroes/villains in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 — so it should come as no surprise to hear that Capcom has teased a new Dead Rising game, with Frank West once again taking up the leading role.
All of this commotion over a potential Dead Rising 3 game began when the official Facebook page for the aforementioned property posted a quote that allegedly came from none other than West himself. The quote asks fans what Frank should pack for a “break in paradise,” which teases a possible tropical locale for the next game in the series. Maybe Frank West is getting ready to make a cameo in some future Dead Island DLC, but I’d place my money on Dead Rising 3.
“I’m getting packing for my new adventure — camera, notebook and baseball bat. What else would i need for a break in paradise?”
Capcom must be preparing to unveil the game in the near future if they’re already teasing it this early. Maybe there’s a chance that DR3 could be revealed at Spike’s VGAs later this week — although you shouldn’t hold your breath for a reveal that soon. The promise of a tropical location for the next game means that player will get a nice change of scenery, and we can only imagine the the hilarity that would come from a zombie hanging ten on a surfboard… or being impaled by one.
More concrete details will likely be coming early next year at the latest, so be sure to keep checking Game Rant for more news on Dead Rising 3 (or any other games for that matter) as soon as it becomes available.
