Dead Rising was originally released in 2006 and developed by Capcom. The first game was created as a survival horror beat em up. The first title starred photo journalist Frank West as he finds himself trapped in a mall. 

As the series went to have sequels, the series’ developers changed as well. Although each title has changed protagonists, the game has retained its tongue and cheek humor in light of the constant danger.

The new gameplay features Frank using some new weapons — armor armed with a freezer, holiday themed dynamite, and a flaming hedge trimmer. The returning hero still retains his humor that both fans and critics have enjoyed with the series.

Fans of survival horror and Dead Rising can look forward to its release this December.
