Dead Rising 3 gets Capcom 31st anniversary arcade mode DLC, available now

The Xbox One version of Dead Rising 3 has received new DLC to celebrate Capcom's 31st anniversary.

Entitled Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha, it offers arcade-style gameplay for up to four players in co-op.

Each character will be able to dress up as a number of classic Capcom characters, such as Haggar from Final Fight, Ryu from Street Fighter and Tofu from Resident Evil.

The DLC is available for download now. No price was confirmed.

It was recently confirmed that Dead Rising 3 will be coming to PC. However, Microsoft has stated that this DLC is exclusive to Xbox One.

Set ten years after its predecessor, Dead Rising 3 introduced new protagonist Nick Ramos, a young mechanic tasked with escaping a city full of zombies before an impending military strike wipes it off the map.

Its release was followed by the launch of four episodic DLC packs, each of which introduced new playable characters, weapons and vehicles.

CVG's Dead Rising 3 review said the title suffered "both visually and technically next to its fellow launch titles, but there's no denying there's still some madcap brand of fun to be had".
