So far the “Dead Rising 3” trailers have all been dark and moody apocalyptic affairs. Which is appropriate when dealing with the rise of undead hordes, however; the “Dead Rising” series has always had it’s tongue firmly planted in it’s cheek. The series is quirky, absurd, and completely over-the-top which is a sensation that has been missing from the trailers. Until now.
In the latest video, the Devs behind “Dead Rising 3” sit down to animatedly discuss the joys of zombie killing. The video is filled with quick highlights of insane weaponry and questionable fashion choices. Want to sport a banana hammock while fighting the undead? Probably not the best idea, but you can do it! The video even reveals a giant teddy bear with fully automatic machine guns mowing down zombies. It would appear as if the series will remain just as insane as ever.
On the less crazy side (or maybe crazier side depending on your Kinect views) the developers briefly discussed how the Kinect would be utilized in the game. The one quick example that they threw out there was that you can yell at your Kinect and the sound would be heard in-game by the zombies. So if you wanted to distract a bunch of zombies or get their attention, you can simply scream at them like a madman. I don’t know why you would want to do that, unless it’s vital for some gameplay scenarios in which you’re trying to keep the zombies from attacking a target. Check out the trailer below and bask in the joys of zombie killing.
“Dead Rising 3” places players in the role of Nick Ramos who must find a way to escape a city full of zombies before an impending military strike wipes the city of Los Perdidos, California, and everyone in it, off the map. The game is coming exclusively to the XBox One and will hit shelves in November.
