By Kelly Packard,
This could be the year about which Dead Rising fans have been dreaming of. With the confirmation of Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2 Off the Record coming to Playstation 4, this is shaping up to be a nice year to ride a tricycle through a horde of zombies at the Willamette Mall.

But let's back it up a bit — the Dead Rising series has been confirmed for PS4? What!? Well, at the moment it has merely been "confirmed" and not yet officially announced by Capcom. Earlier this week, PS4 trophies for the original Dead Rising popped up online, a game that had previously been exclusive to Xbox 360. Eurogamer asked Capcom what the deal was... and they actually responded.

"Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In addition, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4. We will have more news to share soon", the Capcom representative told Eurogamer.

In what capacity the games will be released is something that we'll just have to wait to find out. Will they be turned into a collection, like so many remastered titles before them? Or will they get the Resident Evil treatment, another Capcom series, and be shelled out one at a time over the course of several months? As Capcom put it, they'll "have more news to share soon", so prepare your pre-orders, Dead Rising fans.
