Dead Rising 3 Set in California, Stars a Mechanic?

Contrary to recent rumours, the next Dead Rising game will star Rick, a mechanic trying to escape the zombie masses in Los Peridos. That's according to a Siliconera source.

Yesterday it was widely reported that a new Dead Rising game might be on the way, starring photojournalist Frank West. If these latest rumours are to believed, that's only half right.

Apparently, the game will will be set in Los Perdidos, California, a town (unsurprisingly) overrun by zombies. But racking up the tension further is the fact that a bomb is set to destroy the town. Rick, a mechanic, must repair a plane and escape before he gets blown to bits.

Sounds like the recipe for lots of fetch quests to us.

Interestingly, there's talk of a political subtext to the game too. Apparently the game will touch on themes of illegal immigration, with a character named Red who "leads an underground group of 'illegals,' which are infected people that aren't registered by the government."

A picture claiming to be a piece of concept art was also unearthed. I've popped it below. Of course, the whole thing could be rubbish. But it's fun rubbish. Expect something official from Capcom in the next couple of days.
