RUMOR: Dead Rising 3 Details

Posted on December 9, 2011 AT 12:00pm

THE BUZZ: Details have surfaced about the recently teased next installment to the Dead Rising series.

According to Siliconera the game will take place in the fictional Californian town of Los Perdidos. After the Zombies shuffle in, the town is locked down with any survivors left trapped inside. A mechanic named Rick will be the game’s main protagonist, his main aim will be to fix a plane in order to escape the city before a bomb detonates destroying everything and everyone. The source also mentions that “Dead Rising 3 has an undercurrent of themes about illegal immigration. Another character called Red leads an underground group of “illegals,” which are infected people that aren’t registered by the government. Annie, Red’s girlfriend is a runaway that’s sympathetic to the infected.”

EGM’s TAKE: It appears that Capcom are once again bringing a new main protagonist into the series. Haven’t they learned that the fans want Frank West by now?

How do you feel about another new main character? Leave your comments below.
