Dead Rising 4 leaks and it looks like it's another Xbox console exclusive

It looks like we're going back to the zombie apocalypse with Frank West. Promotional material and screens sent to Thisgengaming (opens in new tab)show off Mr West with a baseball bat slung over one shoulder and a sea of the undead behind him. There's no official news of platforms but reports strongly suggest this will be another console exclusive for Microsoft. This makes sense, given that Dead Rising 3 (opens in new tab) was a launch title for the Xbox One. 

As reported by Kotaku (opens in new tab), who also collaborate the leaked images, the game is being developed by Capcom Vancouver and is set in Willamette Colorado which just happens to be the original location of the shopping centre of Dead Rising 1. 

Further into serious rumour territory is info from an insider that this is actually a remake of the original but with added multiplayer support. Take that with a serious pinch of undead salt though. We'll find out more at Microsoft's E3 conference next week (opens in new tab)
