Capcom has announced another Dead Rising 2-based Xbox 360-exclusive downloadable game at the Tokyo Game Show. It’s entitled Dead Rising 2: Case West. Unlike the previous downloadable title, Case West will be an epilogue that takes place directly after the events of Dead Rising 2. This time round, Dead Rising 2 protagonist Chuck Greene will team up with Dead Rising 1 hero Frank West. Players will be able to play as the dynamic duo in online co-op.
“In co-op mode, Xbox LIVE Gold members will see the two protagonists delve deeper into the reasons behind the Fortune City outbreak and provide further links to the Willamette incident,” said Capcom.
To go alongside the announcement, Capcom has confirmed that they have acquired Dead Rising 2 developer Blue Castle Games. That team will now be called “Blue Castle Games Vancouver”. The studio has made Capcom a lot of money with Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, which became an Xbox Live Arcade best-seller earlier this month. A release date for Case West is yet to be announced.
