Dead Rising 3 gets unlockable Mega Man X costume

Live out your Halloween fantasies of dressing up as Mega Man and killing zombies.

by

The original Dead Rising included an unlockable Mega Man costume. Dead Rising 2 featured Protoman. So you can safely assume that the Xbox One-exclusive Dead Rising 3 will also feature some kind of cameo from the Blue Bomber's series; and you'd be right. This time it's X.

In an interview with the game's producer Mike Jones, Polygon reports that you'll be able to unlock a Mega Man X costume by completing Nightmare, DR3's hardest difficulty setting. But Jones doesn't think just anyone will be able to complete that challenge. "Some of our QA testers think that Nightmare is possibly the most difficult Dead Rising yet."

"That is yet to be determined by the gamers at large," Jones said, "but we tried to make it a proper challenge. We made a deliberate choice to separate the regular story from nightmare mode, which is a challenge for Dead Rising enthusiasts, especially if you start that on level one, which you have as an option instead of your leveled up game, and that is going to be really hard."

Dead Rising 3 is set to launch worldwide with the Xbox One on November 22.

 Mega Man is an underrated legend and the lack of money and quality put into the games are proof of this. But the gaming industry treats him as if he is a classic by putting references of him into games like this. Then, I might ask, why is Capcom not even acknowledging his existence with next gen games? Popularity ratings can go up or down depending on how good one game is. Yes, it is a big financial risk investing into new ideas and mechanics, but now-a-days that is the only way to resurrect an ancient product. Is it worth losing money to try a new idea for a game? The answer to that is an opinion between people that remember what games were originally made for and the people that just see dollar signs when they make a game. The point is, the Blue Bomber is not dead, he is just buried. The only ones who have given up hope in Mega Man titles is Capcom. It should be apparent by the thousands of astonished responses from fans after the cancelation of the upcoming Mega Man Legends 3 that us fans haven't given up on him. Fed up with the low quality and lack of good creativity in some of the games? Yes. But what us fans are really waiting for is for Capcom to start giving Mega Man his credit and investing the same amount of effort into him as they do their other titles. That is all us fans ask for.

Well i guess this is as bout as close to anything mega man related we gamers are gonna get. Aside from the blue bombers appearance in the upcoming smash bros game for the WiiU, the many mega man comics by Archie comics and the Mighty No. 9 game in the works

Instead of making a costume, they should make a megaman game!

My games on 360 are still running at I think 480 on my SDTV. I don't care about all that, aslong as I have fun that's all that matters.

Ryan Testa there are only a few PS4s that are having issues and they are from the 5000 or so units shipped from the taco bell promo..same thing will happen with Xbox One though no one knows to what extent.. There will be at least some units that will have problems...it happens with all electronics

It's cool and all but I'm kind of disappointed that they gave him just the X-Buster to use. It would've REALLY been sweet if they had given us boss weapons like Storm Tornado, Rolling Shield, Homing Torpedo, or Boomerang Cutter.

Fanboy here of all things gaming. I have a PS3, Xbox360,WiiU. I love video games, video game consoles. I have the X1 pre ordered. I have the PS4 pre ordered, that I MIGHT be picking up at midnight tonight. I'm a little concerned though. I've just recently read some reviews from Kotaku, IGN, Polygon, The Taco Bell contest winners. That their PS4s are having problems. Something about the hardware, a bad HDMI port. Is this something that others are concerned about? Are there going to millions of broken PS4s being sold? I'd like some real feedback from my fellow GAMERS. No jackass responses, Thanks.

They need to leave Mega Man alone, and just go make a new Mega Man game that doesn't suck. Dead Rising isn't worthy of Mega Man.

I'm glad they removed the time limit, I like taking my sweet time with exploring and caving in a zombie's head using various tools without having to worry that I'll miss the flight out of the city! I couldn't care less about alternative costumes and whatnot, as long as the core gameplay is refined and fun!

How about we all just share our excitement over new consoles and games, instead of being whiny little bitches about every little detail. #jesuschrist

Has anybody who's played it said anything to the contrary yet? The last Dead Rising was a stuttering mess too, and the first wasn't much better. Capcom have been struggling. I don't see where you'd get any faith in these guys.

You haven't even played it. You're just talking about a months old build of the game. The Gold retail version literally just shipped a couple of days ago.
