New Dead Rising 4 Trailer Introduces the New Capcom Heroes Content

Capcom has shared a new trailer for Dead Rising 4.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off the new “Capcom Heroes” content that’s coming alongside the PlayStation 4 version.

Here’s a rundown on the new content, via Capcom:

In Capcom Heroes for Dead Rising 4, Frank West wears over a dozen outfits pulled from the Capcom archives and performs signature special attacks based on some of our greatest heroes. Capcom Heroes is an alternate way to experience the Dead Rising 4 story mode. While progressing through missions and exploring the world, players will discover arcade machines. Interacting with these arcade cabinets lets the player equip a new “Hero Outfit” that gives Frank the powers and abilities of that character.

While we aren’t announcing all of our featured costumes today, we can confirm that Frank will be able take on the look and abilities of:

  • Cammy from Street Fighter
  • X from Mega Man X
  • Sissel from Ghost Trick
  • Adam “The Clown” MacIntyre from Dead Rising
  • Dante from Devil May Cry
  • “Classic” Frank West from Dead Rising
  • So many more!

Frank will now be able to fight through the zombie hordes and uncover what’s behind the latest outbreak in Willamette while wielding Adam’s dual chainsaws, Dante’s Rebellion Sword or X’s signature X-Buster and many more of Capcom’s most powerful weapons.

In addition to using the arcade machines, Frank can purchase some outfits from vendors and unlock others by finding collectibles hidden throughout the world. Players will also want to look for “Hero Training” side missions which award outfit variants and upgrades.

The design team has packed even more Capcom goodness that encourage players to photograph posters in the environment and loot treasures to access interesting game trivia and art.

Capcom Heroes is launching for all Dead Rising 4 owners on December 5th entirely free, while the PlayStation 4 version, Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Packageis coming on December 5th as well.

    These new costumes and movesets actually look fun, but I don’t know that they will be enough to salvage a bad game…

    This is morbid as hell. I wonder if the reason they remembered Ghost Trick was because it’d be easy to pull off with little funds put towards it.

    I didn’t realise this was getting a PS4 release. Xboners flaccid once again.

    Glad to see that they used DMC1 Dante this time around since it’s been DMC3 Dante that’s been used in most of his appearances. Also, I’m glad X is getting some more love since his fighting game debut in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, as Mega Man’s replacement. ?

    I thought it was Dante from Marvel vs Capcom Infinate for a moment then i realised it was Frank dressed up, its hard to tell

    I don’t think this is a big loss, Dead Rising 4 is really bad compared to the first two games

    The only thing I like about this is Sissel’s costume, sadly this game is awful as fuck and nothing compared to the first two games

    I’m not bothered either way, I’m only amused because I specifically remember someone in a comments section a few months back gloating over Dead Rising 4 being Xbone exclusive.

    Oh look, Capcom is using their properties to save the game again.
    They should just make a musou already, and give this series back to Japan.
