MS @ E3 14: Dance Central Spotlight and (deep breath) Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha announced
What? Capcom just took the stage at Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference and revealed… wait for it… Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha. That ridiculously long title should be your clue that the latest downloadable add-on for Dead Rising 3 is a Street Fighter crossover that features four-player co-op and wild Street Fighter-style special moves. Frank West, Chuck Greene, Nick Ramos, and Annie will be to cosplay as your favorite Street Fighter characters and they’ll also be able to borrow their signature moves. So if you’ve ever wanted to blast a zombie with a hadoken, now’s your chance. Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha is available to download now.
One more quick announcement, Dance Central Spotlight will be available to download exclusively for the Xbox One this Fall.
Capcom announced its awesome lineup for E3 2014, and the list is pretty awesome. They’ll have Dead Rising 3 for PC; Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on iOS; Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for the 3DS; Ultra Street Fighter IV for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360; and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the 3DS. You can probably tell what I’m most excited for by which image I chose!
Capcom will also be showing off Capcom Pro Tour, which is referred to as “the premier league destination for competitive fighting games.” The yearlong tournament circuit will lead up to the Capcom Cup, which will have 16 players facing off against one another.
For the full press release of Capcom’s E3 offerings, hit the jump. (more…)
Dead Rising 3‘s first expansion, “Operation Broken Eagle,” will be available to download through the Xbox Live Store sometime today. To get players excited about the adventures of Commander Kane, a Spec Ops soldier in search of the US President, Capcom and Microsoft have released a brand new trailer for “Operation Broken Eagle,” which you can view above.
Operation Broken Eagle is the first of four “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos” that will be available for Dead Rising 3. They will be available as part of the Dead Rising 3 Season (priced at $29.99) or you can get them singly for $9.99.
I guess this clinches it. Xbox One owners, collectively, have been very very naughty. At least, Santa Justice is the only explanation I can come up with for Capcom’s decision to delay the first downloadable expansion for Dead Rising 3, “Operation Broken Eagle,” from December 24 to January 21.
Or, you can read the official statement the publisher issued to Joystiq for the real explanation:
“Adding new content to the massive open world of Los Perdidos is a major undertaking, and to ensure we provide the best possible experience for players, we are putting a few additional weeks of polish and testing into the episode before it’s released. Stay tuned for additional updates.”
Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle DLC announced
Now that Dead Rising 3 (and the Xbox One console) is available, Capcom has announced the first of four downloadable expansions they have planned for the game.
“Operation Broken Eagle” will star Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane and task the soldier with rescuing the President of the United States. Each expansion will feature a different character and Kane is about as far from Nick Ramos, a mechanic just trying to survive, as you can get. As a Spec Ops Commander, Kane will have access to “over-the-top” military weaponry and tank-like vehicles that “spew bullets.”
Capcom Vancouver’s Josh Bridge has outlined more details of the DLC over at Major Nelson’s blog. And he also wants everyone to know that, if you haven’t purchased the game yet, a Dead Rising 3 demo is now available to download through Xbox Live.
UPDATE: Capcom later announced that “Operation Broken Eagle” will be available to download on December 24 for $9.99 (or as part of a $29.99 Season Pass).
Microsoft is all set to roll the Xbox One into stores on November 22. To get everyone excited, Capcom has unleashed this launch trailer for Dead Rising 3… which actually looks very similar to every other Dead Rising 3 trailer the publisher has released, albeit with some very soothing music and a bunch of quotes from media outlets who love the game.
I suppose it could have been worse. If this trailer had been made in the early 2000s, it would have included “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor” on the soundtrack.
The Dead Rising franchise is probably best known for the copious amounts of crazy Capcom has crammed into it. So more than a few gamers have been disappointed by how straight Dead Rising 3 has played it. They ask, “Where are the zombie shenanigans?” This new “Story Trailer” for Dead Rising 3 doesn’t really change trajectory, but it does give us an idea of the sheer sense of scale of the zombie outbreak. Hopefully, Capcom Vancouver has a few surprises in store for us.
Dead Rising 3, and the Xbox One console, will be available on November 22.
PAX Prime practically takes place in Microsoft’s backyard and the consolemaker will have a large presence at the show, taking over three booths (#412, #422, and #432) and a hefty chunk of the Washington State Convention Center. But they only plan to have eight games on display, and one of them is on loan from Electronic Arts.
Four Xbox One games will be playable on the show floor including Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome, Turn 10’s Forza Motorsport 5, Double Helix’s Killer Instinct reboot, and DICE’s Battlefield 4.
Microsoft also plans to erect a massive theater in their booth that will showcase developer-guided demos of four additional games on a 30-minute rotation. The rotation includes new looks at Rare’s Kinect Sports Rivals:, Capcom’s Dead Rising 3, the game creation game Project Spark, and the lone Xbox 360 game in their booth, Fable Anniversary. According to Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb, “other surprises” may be in store for the Xbox booth as well.
This year’s PAX Prime expo runs from August 30 through September 2. More details on all of the demos can be found after the break. (more…)
