Dead Rising 3 zombies are like snowflakes

Or so the launch trailer’s title would suggest

Microsoft has released the launch trailer for Dead Rising 3, launching with the Xbox One console this week. Are there zombies? You bet there are.

This is, right now, the only title the Xbox One has on offer that I feel a burning desire to play. I adore the Dead Rising series. Its endless supply of undead and ridiculous killing implements are a joy, and I appreciate the time-sensitive mission structure that forces players to prioritize activities and race from one objective to the next. 

That passion isn’t enough to get me to actually buy the console. But I’m certain it’ll be the among the first games I pick up when that day comes.
