Even though the sequel didn't garner as much critical acclaim as Capcom might've hoped, you had to assume another entry was on the way.
And if you check the official Dead Rising Facebook page , it seems Frank West is coming back for a "new adventure."
" I'm getting packing for my new adventure – camera, notebook and baseball bat. What else would I need for a break in paradise? – Frank. "
Man, that sounds a little like Dead Island , doesn't it? Anyway, not long after, Siliconera apparently confirmed the existence of Dead Rising 3 . It'll take place in the fictional city of Los Perdidos, California, where a zombie outbreak has closed the town's borders.
But strangely, in contrast to the Facebook page message, Frank West won't be the protagonist. Instead, it'll be some mechanic dude named Rick, who intends to repair a plane and fly to safety before the town is overrun. In fact, flying will be a part of the gameplay, and the game will boast "an undercurrent of themes about illegal immigration."
Capcom hasn't confirmed anything just yet, but be prepared for a potentially controversial theme…
