Frank West gets Radd: Bionic Commando cosplay spotted in Dead Rising Wii


Just yesterday, that Wii-loving bad boy Brad Nicholson posted some hot news on an interview with Capcom stating that Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop will have more outfits that the original. Sad thing is, the interview doesn't say exactly what those outfits will be. The 360 original featured a full Mega Man X costume (complete with Mega-Buster), as well as a creepy-cute Servebot mask that pretty much sold me on the game upon first sight.

Looks like Capcom is at that sort of in-game self-promotion again, but this time they're using Dead Rising to promote a game that's yet to be released. According to these scans, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop will be the first game by Capcom where you can play as a dreadlocks-sporting tough guy with a bionic arm. It's a weird move, especially seeing as no "next-gen" version of Bionic Commando is coming to the Wii.

Is Capcom hoping that people who buy Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop will love it so much that they not only buy a PS3/360 afterward, but Bionic Commando as well? Or even weirder, do they think that PS3/360 owners who currently don't want Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop will see this outfit, and be so overcome with excitement for Bionic Commando that they'll buy Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop anyway, just to virtual cosplay as Radd Spencer?

Ah, who cares! Just let me re-murder zombies by shaking a giant golden bell at them while wearing a oversized red pirate hat, and I promise this game will be a hit.
