Dead Rising 2: Case West trailer has the return of gaming's greatest photojournalist

Announced a couple months ago Case West, the 360-exclusive epilogue to Dead Rising 2, was revealed and it teased the return of Frank West to the series he made famous. At the time we only got a glimpse of the most fly guy to cover wars since Edward R Murrow.  Now, as the dust settles on the pretty good Dead Rising 2, Capcom has finally released some new footage of the man in action, as he teams up with DR2’s Chuck Greene.

Wow, that had so much insane sh!t in there, you might not have caught it all. Let’s slow it down for you:

Above: Frank looks like he’s had a pretty good couple years between games

Above: You can finally carry the ugly brain-eaters and toss them around

Above: You can plow through the undead on motorized unicycles

Above: There’s a freaking laser gun and a huge samurai sword

Above: You get to dress as Dr Wily! (You can see more new screens here)

With a planned release some time during December, this adventure seems perfect for co-op, though you can play single player with Frank as AI, but where’s the fun in that? It’s all about working together as Frank helps Chuck prove the evil corporation Phenotrans was involved in the Fortune City outbreak, which will ultimately prove Chuck’s innocence. This mix of film and duct tape looks like a grand 360-only epilogue, but is it too much to ask that it only be $5 like Case Zero?

    More Dead Rising 2 the better. Even though zombies are mindless shambling corpses who only act on hunger, even they would be afraid at that combination of characters haha!

    Sooo, does one player get to use the camera, and the other gets to combine weapons? I wonder how they'll work that one out. Still, Frank West is truly the manliest man in the journalism biz. He's covered wars, ya know.

    Is it just me or does Frank look like he aged a lot and his face drooped down cuz his forehead is huge. I havent played Dead Rising but i played tatsunoko versus capcom and he looked really different

    @santaclouse37 Due to convuluted issues, I had to use the old player. Hopefully this is the last time you will ever see it in a story.

    Is this a standalone download like Case 0? Or is it DLC for Dead Rising 2 that you need the disc?
