Just Capcom being Capcom
In a surprise announcement, Capcom has announced that the latest entry in the Dead Rising franchise will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 on December 5. Titled Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package, the new release will effectively become the definitive version of the game to buy. All previously released DLC will be included, along with exclusive new content.
You can check out the trailer below.
The new mode is called Capcom Heroes, and is described as a new way to experience the story. Frank will be able to wear over a dozen outfits, which include outfits based on Megaman X and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. Each costume will have special attacks, which could potentially make a double dip worthwhile.
It’s surprising that Capcom is porting Dead Rising 4 to the PlayStation 4 so soon. The console hasn’t even gotten Dead Rising 3 yet, which our own Chris Carter spoke very highly of with a 9/10. However, he was not as kind to Dead Rising 4, giving it a 7.5/10, and it would appear consumers weren’t either. When Capcom released its latest sales figures this July, no figures for Dead Rising 4 were given, meaning it likely did not break the million unit mark.
I can’t see myself getting this, as I’ve often heard fans say it’s inferior to the other ones available on PlayStation 4. Every change I heard about it, such as the removal of the iconic timer system, seemed to suggest that as well. I feel bad for those that supported it on Xbox One and PC though, as they effectively bought an inferior version now.
