Dead Rising 2: Case West now available exclusively on XBLA

Dead Rising 2 has proven to be a pretty worthy follow-up to the 2006 zombie-infested favorite, but the introduction of new protagonist Chuck Greene left many wanting for their favorite wartime photographer. Capcom has delivered here with Frank West making his triumphant return in Dead Rising 2: Case West.

Case West, much like Case Zero, is a standalone package, so you don’t need to own Dead Rising 2 to get in on this action.

The company line on the game is as follows:

Frank West and Chuck Greene fight side by side in this explosive addition to Dead Rising 2! Chuck Greene has lost the evidence that would have cleared his name. In his darkest hour Frank West appears and offers one last chance for Chuck to redeem himself. Together, the pair heads to a secret Zombrex research facility where they hope to uncover evidence that will exonerate Chuck, and shed some light on Phenotrans’ sinister plot. Case West re-introduces the ability to take pictures in-game. Two players can also play together as Chuck and Frank in the full-featured co-op mode!

So go scrounge up your 800 Microsoft Points and get to racking up those photography-powered PP. Case West is exclusive to Xbox Live Arcade– for now.
