Dead Rising is being reanimated!

Do you remember when Dead Rising came out on the Xbox 360? I do! It was a really fun take on the zombie genre and added some mechanics uncommon in games at the time.

A 72-hour time limit before you had to escape. You could only save specific NPCs at specific times of day, so you couldn’t get everyone all in one run.

Finding a katana and a Lego head to run around in and cause chaos. Dead Rising gave us an entire shopping mall to run riot in. I didn’t quite “get” it at the time, truth be told. But in hindsight, I wish I’d spent more time with it.

Luckily, now I can. Come September 19th, Dead Rising is being reanimated. I’m all-in on this one, and wonder if it’ll grab me the way it did millions of players back when it originally came out.
