Today Capcom revealed that the first batch of DLC for its ever popular, duct taped fueled zombie kill-a-thon, Dead Rising 2 will hit sometime this December. Bringing back the protagonist from the original Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2: Case West sees Frank West team up with Chuck Green to get to investigate the pharmaceutical company Phenotrans.
In terms of gameplay, Case West will allow two-player co-op. If you happen to be friendless, like myself, the AI will control one of the player.
Other things included in Case West are: the photography mechanic from the first Dead Rising, new survivors, new items, new enemies and, of course, new weapon combination. Also, “expect to see cameo appearances from other characters from Dead Rising.”
Exclusive to the Xbox 360, Capcom has yet to announce a price point for this batch of DLC. Personally, I am guessing it will cost around 400 Microsoft Points ($5), which was the price of the prequel Dead Rising 2: Case Zero.
What do you guys think about this? Are you excited to slay some zombies with a buddy? What do you think about the return of the oh so hated photography mechanic? Lastly, which characters are you hoping to make a return appearance in Case West? Let us know with a comment below.
