Dead Rising 3 has some new downloadable content, and boy is it something else. Styled Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha, its an expansion of the Dead Rising 3 universe, starring characters Nick, Annie, Chuck, and Frank... sort of. See, characters in "Super Ultra..." are actually cosplayers, dressed in various outfits from the history of other Capcom titles, from Rival Schools to Street Fighter to Dino Crisis. When the characters wear a given costume, they get, more or less, the powers associated with that particular character. So, in costume as Chun-Li from Street Fighter II, Annie gets her famous Flash Kick, whereas dressing up as Mayor Mike Haggar from Final Fight yields his timeless 360 spinning punch. The point of all this is to team up with up to three buddies and go kick some zombie ass. Levels range from straight-up zombie swatting, to vehicle races, to hostage rescues, to boss fights. Missions generally come strung together in a series, with players scored against each other based on achievements, and and also as a team. Power-ups and weapons abound, and players can build their personal power-up bars by killing zombies, unleashing their special moves once the bar is charged up. And many zombies will be killed in Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha. Many, many, many zombies. In fact, most levels present players with an endlessly respawning supply of the things, and theyre not too much of a threat (assuming you dont act like a complete idiot and get yourself cornered). Unlike its parent game, the point of "...Plus Alpha" is not simply to survive against tough odds. Instead, the point is to go crazy with superhero-like powers in a free environment where you can kick tons of butt with your three closest friends.
