Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster is out sooner than you think

Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster got a September 19 release date during the Capcom Next: Summer 2024 showcase this evening.

Capcom showed up strong across this summer’s live streams with games like Monster Hunter Wilds, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, and Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection: Arcade Classics, which is why it was surprising when Capcom announced Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster out of the blue on June 26. The teaser was scarce with information, simply confirming the remaster’s existence and showing off a redesigned version of protagonist Frank West. Capcom told fans to tune into this Capcom Next showcase to learn more, and it showed up big as the second game of the show.

At its core, it does look like Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster will deliver the same core experience as the original Dead Rising, with players hodgepodging weapons together with materials around a mall as they try to survive and escape a zombie horde and psychopathic enemies for 72 hours. It’s close to a full-on remake, vastly overhauling the visuals and adding gameplay features like letting Frank move while aiming, visual filters while taking pictures with a camera, and auto saves.

The description for its announcement trailer also confirms 4K and 3D audio support, while a press release claims it will run at 60 frames per second and have updated character models. Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster’s user interface and non-player character AI also got improvements, so while the core timer-based gameplay setup of the original is still present, Capcom hopes it feels approachable to new players. The best part is that we won’t need to wait that long to play this game.

Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster will be released for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S digitally on September 19 and will cost $50. A physical version to follow in November, and there will be a $60 digital deluxe edition that comes with 17 additional costumes for Frank West and 17 background music tracks for the shopping mall, while preorders will net players costumes based on the 2006 original’s Frank West, Dead Rising 2‘s Chuck Greene, and the Willamette Parkview Mall Bee.

During the Capcom Next livestream, we also got a look at Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, which is out July 19. We learned that a free demo is out today and that the game will feature crossover items with Okami. Meanwhile, Resident Evil 7 biohazard for iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPad, and Mac got a July 2 release date.

Apple’s gaming push is heating up faster than you think
Frostpunk 2 runs on a MacBook.

A few years back, I was invited to meet with Apple about its new push into gaming. The company wouldn’t show me a flashy new product to enable that. Instead, it showed me something more modest: No Man’s Sky running smoothly on a MacBook. It looked great, but it wasn’t exactly earth-shattering. It was an independent game from 2016 running on a laptop as well as it had already been running for years on other PCs. I got the sense that I wasn’t there to cover a big development in tech, but rather to see a proof of concept that had bigger plans attached.

Years later, those plans are coming into focus even if they still aren’t fully realized yet. I recently attended a repeat of that showcase, only this time I wasn’t just watching an eight-year-old game running on a laptop. I demoed several games, including brand new ones, this time running on a range of devices including the MacBook Air M3 and a 13” iPad Pro M4. While we’re still a long ways away from the App Store being up to snuff with Steam on Windows, I’m starting to see where gaming on iOS is headed -- and Apple is getting there faster than I expected.
Growing gaming
During my recent session with Apple, I’d get to see and play several games running across iPhone, iPad, and Macbooks. Some of those experiences are more exciting for Apple than for casual players. It’s neat that Resident Evil 7 can run well on an iPhone, but that’s not so surprising when I already know that the much more recent Resident Evil 4 does too. I’m happy to see games like Control and Valheim looking great, but those are existential wins for Apple as it seeks more partners to expand its gaming efforts. I don’t imagine that gamers are jumping to play games that have been out for years on an Apple device (and according to reports, they very much aren’t yet).

Every summer 2024 gaming showcase: full schedule and stream recaps

Resident Evil 9: release date window, trailers, gameplay, and more
Ethan Winters shoots Lycans in Resident Evil Village.

One of the longest-running franchises in gaming is Capcom's Resident Evil. While the series has hit many stumbling points over the years, Resident Evil 7 was a turning point that brought the survival horror series back into the mainstream. Now, the series has split into the new games and a string of equally excellent remakes. As fun as revisiting those classic games are, it is the new entries that have fans most excited, especially given  where Resident Evil 8 left things. That obviously means Resident Evil 9 is next up for the core series, but what will that game look like and when can we expect it? Details are more secretive than the Umbrella Corporation's agenda, but we've collected as many documents as possible to give you all the intel we could find.
Release date window

There's no official release window for Resident Evil 9. In fact, we only know that it is being made and that Resident Evil 7 Director Koshi Nakanishi will return to direct this entry.
