Dead Rising shambles its way onto PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 this September

From 13 September 2016 you’ll be able to kill zombies once more while wearing a MegaMan helmet. Yup, the Dead Rising series is making its way to current-generation systems.

While the original Dead Rising will be available on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will only be re-released on consoles.

Capcom will be releasing the games with all of their previously released DLC, as well as updated visuals which will run at 1080p/60fps.

Released in 2006, Dead Rising was the first Xbox 360 title to require an HD TV — making the on-screen text unreadable on an SD TV — and angering fans.

The South African PSN store has yet to list the games, but a bundle of all three titles is up for pre-order on the Xbox website for R749.

The latest title in the franchise, Dead Rising 3, is still a PC and Xbox One exclusive.

Dead Rising 4, the next entry in the series, will launch locally on 6 December for Xbox One and PC.
