Dead Rising 2: Off the Record trailer prepares you for the return of Frank West

Get caught up with Dead Rising’s original hero

With less than a week until Dead Rising 2: Off the Record launches, it’s time to catch up with the series' returning protagonist, Frank West. This clip highlights the zombie-smashing photojournalist’s time out of the spotlight – and apparently, the years have not been kind to him.

Billed as an “all new Dead Rising 2 experience,” Off the Record re-imagines the Fortune City outbreak from West’s perspective. For the record, Off the Record will launch on Oct 11 on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Then you can decide if West looks better than Chuck Greene sporting a blood-red onesie astride a chainsaw motorcycle.
