You can play as the proper Frank West in free Dead Rising 4 update

Last month it was announced that the PS4 would be getting Dead Rising 4 later this year in the form of Frank’s Big Package (giggity).  One of the new features included in this update was Capcom Heroes, where you’ll be able to access arcade machines during the campaign that would then unlock iconic Capcom characters (or more accurately outfits) from its vast library of games.

Well now it has been announced that one of those outfits will feature the classic Frank West from the original Dead Rising games.  The new look and newly voiced Frank West that features in Dead Rising 4 did not go down well overall, with many not liking his new look or voice.  So while it’s not quite the same as having the proper Frank West voiced and all, it is at least some conciliation that we can look like the much loved character in his original form.


The other characters that feature in the trailer below, includes the original Dante outfit from Devil May Cry, Mega Man X, Sissel from Ghost Trick, Cammy from Street Fighter and Adam “The Clown” MacIntyre from the very first Dead Rising game (I HATED that boss battle) and many more.  Each of the character outfits will also grant you with special abilities exclusive to that attire.  Capcom Heroes will be included in the PS4’s Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package and as a free update for existing owners on Xbox One and PC.

You can watch the new gameplay trailer above, along with a batch of new screenshots and character concept images below.  Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package and the free update for existing owners will launch on December 5th this year.
