Dead Rising 3’s Story Trailer And Screenshots Decoded

By Spencer . November 8, 2013 . 3:02pm

Microsoft lifted the lid on Dead Rising 3’s story with this trailer and did you notice Isabela Keyes was in it? Siliconera revealed that information months ago. Since there wasn’t a lot of context to go with the screenshots we are going to share some additional details about Dead Rising 3.


The woman in the trailer that points out Nick is going to turn is Rhonda, Nick’s boss at the auto mechanic shop.



This guy with a Hawaiian shirt is Gary and he is hired muscle for a local gang.

Red is the leader of the illegals, a group of infected people who don’t want to register that they are infected with the government. When Los Perdidos becomes the epicenter of an outbreak, the government rushes in to seal off the area and Red is suspicious of their involvement.

Shifu is one of the boss fights in Dead Rising 3.



Diego is one of Nick’s old friends who left for the army. The two meet again during the outbreak.

    another franchise ruined by Micro$oft

    when will this end???

    • Shinobikens

      Technically if anybody ruined it, it was Capcom since they sold out to Microsoft

      • Kaihedgie

        Yes, selling out to Microsoft by continuing to make games for the two other rivaling first-party companies


        • Shinobikens

          They sold out Dead Rising 3 to them. So good luck getting it for the other 2 first-party systems. Anyway Capcom is shit now anyway so who cares

          • Vesperion

            Dead Rising was originally on the 360, or rather it was console exclusive to the 360

          • Kaihedgie

            Well obviously you care since you clicked on the article and commented on it.

          • Mugiwara

            I wouldn’t say shit. They still do Phoenix Wright without ruined it.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Honestly I’m just waiting for the inevitable PC port. 720p30 on a next gen console is way too ridiculous specially considering it only looks slightly better than Dead Rising 2: Off The Record on max settings (I know the map is bigger but you know that other tiny open world game… GTA V? That runs at the exact same framerate and resolution on 7 year old hardware).

    • Guest

      A PC port? Oh, now that’s something to wait for.

    • Hector Velar

      I really hope so too, PC will be ideal.

  • Chaos_Knight

    A robot cat?

    Damn, Dead Rising gets more crazier and crazier. What’s next? The ability to throw Hadokens?

    (I would like that actually…)

    • Namuro

      Well, there was already the Rock Buster (Real Mega Buster) in Dead Rising 1… So yeah, it could happen, someday. Might as well throw in the Shoryuken move as well. LOL

      • Chaos_Knight

        Actually, there IS a Shoryuken in the game. (or at least what it appears to be.)

        Maybe it will appear as an unlockable move. Like how Frank got Guile’s Flash Kick and Zangief’s Double Lariat.

        • Namuro

          Oh yeah… I totally forgot that Shoryuken right there, and you’re right, there’s the Flash Kick, and the Lariat as well.

          Now, if they’ll just put in the Tatsumaki move!

  • Vesperion

    I love the salt from these console fanboys

  • RazeXI

    I’m calling it now, Nick’s friend Diego is gonna die in the story.

  • Göran Isacson

    Maybe it’s just me, but does Nick look like he has slanted eyes to anyone else? For some reason it’s driving me nuts, him and the guy from the new Infamous game both, I can’t tell if they’re supposed to look vaguely asian or not.
