Original Story (July 18 at 7:34 PM)
Eurogamer is reporting that the first two Dead Rising games are coming to current gen consoles as well as PC (Dead Rising 2 is already there). The outlet says that Capcom has confirmed this is the case.
We have reached out to Capcom for verification and have not yet received a reply. When we do, we’ll update the article accordingly.
Dead Rising 2 received a 9.5 from editor Jeff Cork when it was released back in 2010, with his review saying “Even after playing for dozens of hours, you’ll still find new things in Dead Rising 2. I won’t spoil anything, but there’s a lot of variety to be found in the game beyond obvious things like the number of objects that can be used as bludgeons. This game is designed for multiple playthroughs, and I’m looking forward to each and every one of them.”

Dead Rising was always one of those games I wanted to play more of when I was in high school but just never got around to more than maybe an hour of it. So yeah, looking forward to giving the series a shot if this report is accurate.
