The last time we got a Dead Rising 3 cinematic trailer, gamers across the world went wild wondering if Capcom was taking the franchise in a more serious direction. Today's latest cinematic trailer, a eight solid screenshots to boot, kill that idea dead. Welcome back to Dead Rising, where you can dress up like Evel Knieval with boxing gloves attached to to some sort of air blower for extra projection.
Goodness me Dead Rising 3 is as dumb as ever. Looking at some of the vehicles in these screenshots... one of them has sparkler fireworks attached to the hubcaps. Just because. It actually makes that initial serious tone seem kind of, well, just bad. It's impossible to tell what sort of game Dead Rising 3 really wants to be. However, trading that meaningful zombie apocalypse drama for a playground where gamers can do a billion different ridiculous things isn't so bad in the long run I guess.
Whatever Dead Rising is, or thinks it is, it's only a few short months away from release. Best to get these out now so gamers can figure out what kind of game they're getting, otherwise they might not get it at all! Dead Rising 3 is an Xbox One launch exclusive and will be landing in November with console's release.
