Dead Rising 2: Case West takes place right after the events of Dead Rising 2. In this downloadable episode, Frank West, the lead character from Dead Rising, teams up with Chuck Greene to infiltrate the Phenotrans Facility right outside Fortune City.
Capcom brought photography back in Dead Rising 2: Case West. Players have to take photos of evidence to prove Phenotrans involvement with the zombie outbreaks. The combo weapon making system also returns and Capcom made a few new weapons for the Xbox Live Arcade game. Screenshots show the Reaper and the Zap ‘n Shine.
Dead Rising 2: Case West always has two characters slicing zombies, even in single player mode. If you’re flying solo the computer takes control of Frank and he’s invincible. In addition to Frank West, Capcom says Case West will have other cameos from Dead Rising to tie the two games together.
Dead Rising 2: Case West is slated for a winter release on Xbox 360.
