In "Hey, that's not really news!" news, Frank West left a puzzling message on the Dead Rising Facebook page. (This is what happens when every major game has to be out before that Black Friday/Cyber Monday window. I hope you're happy, free market.) Anyway, the message alludes to a new adventure for our favorite war-covering, zombie-masking, erotic photo-taking, cross-dressing photojournalist:
I’m getting packing for my new adventure – camera, notebook and baseball bat. What else would i need for a break in paradise?
Gee, Frank, I don't know... maybe a copy of Dead Island, that way you know what's coming? I don't know if this is a tease for a new full game, or just some DLC, but I'm sure it's something, right? Capcom does have a habit of releasing the same game with minor tweaks, so here's hoping its not some tacked on nonsense, like Dead Rising 2: Fortune City's Wet and Wild Waterpark!!!
Whatever it is, we hope it has co-op. No self-respecting game franchise would ever actually get rid of a co-op mode, would they? That would be madness.
I hope the game takes place on a cruise ship. If Speed 2: Cruise Control taught me anything, it's that... wait. I never saw Speed 2... Heck, it's a slow news day, so let the rampant speculation begin! Where do you think Frank is going? Try to keep it interesting. First person that says "beach," "tropical" or "island" loses.
