The original Dead Rising was, I remember, one of the first games that required a high-end TV to play. I had yet to transition from my CRT telly, and upon getting the game couldn't even read the text because I needed a unit capable of 720p. Now, Capcom has revealed that both Frank West's original zombie outbreak story, Chuck's quest to cure his daughter in Dead Rising 2, and their joint adventure in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record have received substantial makeovers and will be coming to Xbox One and PS4 this September, with a separate release of the original Dead Rising also making its way to Steam.
All three updates have been upped to 1080p 60fps, which should provide a decent experience as the originals often suffered with frame-rate hits depending on how many zombies were on-screen at once, and I'm stoked because I never actually finished the original, so now here's my chance.
2016 is the year of Dead Rising and what better way to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the series than to re-live the classic zombie outbreaks. Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for digital download on September 13th, 2016 across Europe and North America. The original Dead Rising will also be available on Steam as a digital download. What a time to be undead!
All three titles will return to take advantage of the current gen hardware systems, bringing the hilarious horror up to a gory-ous 1080p at 60 fps. Each new version of the game will also include all of the additional previously released DLC costumes.
