Ah, Frank West. The star of the original Dead Rising and Chop ‘Til You Drop has covered wars, you know? He even represented the franchise in Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. He’s unintentionally silly, taking pictures at inopportune times and running around in a Servbot head and boxers, if you so desire. Still, when Dead Rising 2 was announce, Frank was missing.
Capcom promised us that we’d get to see what Frank’s up to. Capsule Computers covered TGS today, with Capcom showing us that Dead Rising 2 CASE: WEST will reveal that. While CASE: ZERO was the prologue to the upcoming sequel, CASE: WEST will be the epilogue, having new star Chuck Greene need to clear his name from the events of the game. Who better to clear names than a certain photojournalist who has also survived the zombie apocalypse?
CASE: WEST appears to be another downloadable title, exclusive to the Xbox 360.
Given how great CASE: ZERO was, and building anticipation for Dead Rising 2 as a whole, I can’t wait to see what Frank’s up to. Maybe, one day, I’ll go back and beat Dead Rising.
