Capcom Announces “Deluxe Remaster” of Dead Rising, Coming This Year

Here's hoping this renewed interest in the franchise from Capcom sees more entries in the future.



Get ready to relive the chaos of the zombie apocalypse, because Capcom has just announced that the 2006 classic Dead Rising is getting a “Deluxe Remaster” set to drop in late 2024! That’s right – Frank West is back, and he’s bringing all the zombie-slaying, photojournalistic action to the latest gaming platforms, though we do not know if it will include all major platforms. Take a look at the teaser below:

Originally released in August 2006, Dead Rising introduced players to Frank West, a photojournalist trapped in a shopping mall overrun by zombies in the fictional town of Willamette, Colorado. The game’s unique blend of action, survival horror, and sandbox gameplay quickly garnered a dedicated fanbase. Players could use everyday items found in the mall as weapons, adding a humorous yet thrilling element to the fight for survival. The game’s innovative mechanics and engaging story set a new standard for the genre.

Following the success of the original, Capcom released several sequels, including Dead Rising 2 (2010), Dead Rising 3 (2013), and Dead Rising 4 (2016), each expanding on the series’ signature gameplay and introducing new characters and storylines. Despite these releases, fans have long awaited news of a potential Dead Rising 5 (which was in development but then abruptly cancelled), hopeful that the franchise would continue to evolve and deliver new experiences.


While specific details about the new features of the Deluxe Remaster are still under wraps, Capcom has all but confirmed that players can expect significant performance improvements, quality of life updates, and enhanced visuals that will take full advantage of modern gaming hardware. The remaster aims to preserve the essence of the original game while introducing improvements that will make it more accessible and enjoyable for today’s gamers.

As we approach the release date, Capcom will no doubt be sharing more information about the Deluxe Remaster, including specific features and content updates. Fans are encouraged to follow Capcom on social media and visit the official website for the latest news and announcements.
