"I saw somebody in the North Plaza. He was leaving the supermarket. He was in a real panic too. Somethin' must be after the poor guy."
Otis Washington

Shadow of the North Plaza is a scoop in Dead Rising.

An injured survivor, David Bailey, can be found hiding in an empty store in the North Plaza on the evening of the first day.


Frank receives a call from Otis about a man in the North Plaza. David Bailey is in N111,[1] one of the empty stores under construction in the North Plaza.

David is initially frightful and tries to crawl away in fear, but relaxes after Frank claims that he is not a bad guy. David then reveals that he has tried to get food from the supermarket, but was attacked by an insane man accusing him of shoplifting.

He says that he cannot walk far on his leg, and Frank offers to assist him back to the Security Room.



  • In Beta version, David acted almost calmly, and can be seen being carried on Frank's back.
  • In Chop Till You Drop, completing this scoop rewards Frank with a Small Chainsaw.
  • Otis will usually call Frank on Day 1, September 19th, 11pm with this scoop, unless there are 8 savable survivors which can be rescued.

There is food in this empty store (N111) which is only here during this mission:
