Capcom has just announced a new, disc-based “reimagining” of the events in Dead Rising 2, only now the game will star photojournalist Frank West from the original Dead Rising – and he has clearly let himself go since the first game. Don’t confuse this with the Xbox 360 exclusive DLC called Case West; this is a full-length game that will be coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
According to Capcom: “the new, ‘Off the Record’ storyline means an all new Dead Rising 2 experience. Frank will face off against more twisted enemies, build more outrageous combo weapons, follow his own unique mission structure and explore brand new areas of Fortune City to get his biggest scoop yet.”
Frank’s camera will make a return as well, which means you’ll be constantly trying to snap the photograph that nets you the most PP (Prestige Points). Capcom has promised decreased load times and an overall “more satisfying Dead Rising experience”.
