Following the recent leaks of the trophies on Exophase, it looks like they can put another big title under their belt that they have successfully announced early. Except this time it is maybe more than anyone bargained for. In a statement with GameSpot, Capcom said:
Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4, and PC. In addition, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4
Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record have always been available on the PC however the original Dead Rising wasnt therefore the re-release on the PC will most likely not be a remastered version. You can find the original article on the leaks below.
A lot of speculation has been thrown around lately about Dead Rising appearing on PS4, especially since Trophies have appeared online.
The trophy list containing 51 different trophies first appeared on Exophase who are notorious for revealing new games before
they are announced with Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls being the most notable. The trophies are all of the same ones that appeared in the ‘achievement’ of the Xbox 360 version.
Dead Rising was first released in 2006 and up until now, Dead Rising was coined to be an Xbox Exclusive however with the latest iteration of the series Dead Rising 4 this is not the case. Not only will PlayStation fans get to experience the Dead Rising universe in the newest version but it may seem that they may be getting the original as well. It has been confirmed that Dead Rising 4 is to be released a year after the release on the Xbox One so Capcom could be trying to keep the PlayStation fans happy for the next year by releasing the original version.
The question is, will the game be touched up at all or will it still look and feel like the original. It is all too early to tell and with nothing announced as of yet, we can only hope and speculate. With Dead Rising 4 coming out December 6th, there is a high chance that if the original is released to the PlayStation 4 then it will either be around the same time or nearer Christmas.
