In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Xbox 360 classic Dead Rising, Capcom has revealed that they will be releasing their remasters of the first three Dead Rising games on September 13th. In a blog post on Capcom Unity, the company said:
Ten years ago, Capcom released Dead Rising, a very different kind of zombie game. Embracing both the horror and the absurdity of the zombie genre, Dead Rising stared photo journalist Frank West as he tried to uncover the truth behind a zombie outbreak in a mall. Anything that West could lay his hands on was a weapon, from the conventional to the absurd. The game was a hit on the Xbox 360 when it was first introduced, and the series has only grown in popularity since Frank first donned a Servbot mask and picked up a Megabuster. In celebration of Dead Rising’s 10th Anniversary, we’re bringing Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record to a new generation of zombie slayers on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. All games feature Dead Rising’s classic zombie sandbox gameplay will include all DLC costumes and upgraded graphics presented in 1080p at 60 frames per second.
In addition to a buying the games separately for twenty dollars, you can buy all three in a bundle for sixty dollars.
This is the first time the original Dead Rising has been available on PC or Playstation, after being released only on Xbox 360 and Wii.
The latest game in the series, Dead Rising 4, drops later this year.
