As it seems, the Dead Rising franchise is getting crazier and crazier day by day. Take a look at the Dead Rising 3 story trailer and new screenshots released by Capcom and you will know what I mean.
For starters, there’s going to be a robot cat. Yes, you read that right, thanks to Nick Ramos’ incredible crafting skills you will be able to craft yourself something that Siliconera referred to as Sentry Cat complete with beams for eyes and metallic body.
Moving on you will experience noticeable shift away from the usual zombie based games when a more human focused story comes into play.
The newly shared screenshots hint that it is not just the zombies that you will have to deal with; illegal gangs, big boss fights against evil villains and space suit jetpack wielding AI could take up a lot of your time.
Up until now, the story of Dead Rising 3 had been kept well out of reach; the Story Trailer is the first dosage of the game’s setting. It starts off 3 days after the zombie outbreak and Nick Ramos the protagonist gets infected arguably earlier than expected. Now he is on a quest to find a cure for the infection.
The trailer shows enough for us to understand that the human NPCs in the game are going to be of much more importance than one would expect at the time of a zombie apocalypse. There will be some that come to aid you and there will be some who would make you wish there were no humans left.
Check out the trailer for yourself and let us know if you think Dead Rising 3 is going to be able to maintain its characteristic traits?
