Capcom’s Dead Rising Now on IPhone and in Apple’s App Store

David Brown

On December 9, Capcom announced that they would be releasing an iPhone/iPod Touch version of their popular game, Dead Rising, via the Apple App Store. This is just like the original Dead Rising on Xbox 360 in that players take on the role of photographer Frank West as he hunts for the biggest story of his life. He is able to utilize makeshift weapons to stay alive while searching for food to stave off hunger.

There is a new social element that Capcom says has been included here. If a player dies while playing, they are able to send out a distress call via Facebook or Twitter to any friends who are also playing the game. Players who come to their aid will receive a bonus, otherwise the player will be allowed to die and thus will revive as a powerful zombie in their friend’s game. Capcom said that the game is now available in the App Store for a special introductory price of $4.99. If you are a fan of the series this seems like something worth checking out.
