Didn't see a topic on this. Don't think it's been dubunked yet, no official word from Capcom.http://www.joystiq.com/2011/12/09/rumor ... e-mechani/
So then, thoughts?
Not sure how I would feel about this. While the plot could be interesting, like Con Air mixed with... the underground railroad?
I'm not entirely on board with the choice of a new protagonist either. Won't be very happy with a OTR scenario the following year.
Also, calling this as a main part of the gameplay: If it's set in a city now, you'll be able to customise vehicles, just like you could do with weapons. Think Dawn of the Dead remake: Think the pimped-out war-machine of a prison bus towards the end of the film. Yeah, that shit's gotta happen.
OOH! You know what would be a badass twist as well? Frank becomes the main antagonist of this one? Some kind of deal where reporters everywhere are all over wars and zombie outbreaks before he is and therefore goes mad and starts his own mass outbreak or bomb scare, or whatever the spark will be of this game, in order to be first. Would wrap up neatly into a nice trilogy. Ya know, before the inevitable Super Dead Rising 4 Turbo: Off The Record - Case Closed Edition.
