E3 2013: Dead Rising 3 Announced, Brings SmartGlass Air Strikes

Dead Rising 3 will hit during this year’s holiday season, exclusively for the Xbox One. Beyond the usual combo weapons you can use to slice through hordes of zombies, you can also drive through them to kill massive amounts of them in one shot and to also move around the open world much easier. SmartGlass is supported and will let you call in air strikes when you’re up against a horde you can’t handle on your own. Think of it like bringing in the bazooka cop-helper in Streets of Rage, but with a smartphone or tablet. Hopefully that functionality can be replicated with the Kinect, since requiring a phone or tablet to get the most out of a core gaming experience would suck.
