Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Release Date

By dropK1CK ninJA, 6 years ago
It is no secret I have a huge... man crush on the upcoming sequel Dead Rising 2. I am also equally excited for the demo-slash-DLC-prequel-slash-whatcha-ma-call-it titled Dead Rising: Case Zero.

Some highlights from the press release:
Players who download Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO and then go on to buy Dead Rising 2 will be able to carry over character attributes earned such as ‘Player Level’, to a maximum of five, ‘Prestige Points’ alongside skills, ‘Combo Cards’ and a number of alternate outfits.
Definitely excited for that.

Case Zero will be hitting the Xbox Live Arcade August 31st. This is an exclusive for the XBLA. It will also cost you 400 MSP to play the entire demo. There will be an early chunk of Case Zero available to play for free, to wet your feet in.

Now would be a good time to enjoy Dead Rising 1 before all this new material hits virtual and physical retail shelves.

Dead Rising 2 will be released September 28 in the United States and October 3rd everywhere else.

DEAD RISING® 2: CASE ZERO COMING THIS AUGUST
Prologue to deliver taste of Dead Rising® 2 exclusively on Xbox Live®


Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Dead Rising® 2: CASE ZERO, will be available on August 31st exclusively to Xbox 360® gamers via Xbox Live® Arcade online gaming service from Microsoft at a cost of 400MPs. A unique and stand alone piece of content, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO acts as a prologue, introducing players to the main protagonist, Chuck Greene and provides a glimpse of the action to come when Dead Rising 2 releases in North America on September 28th, Japan on September 30th and throughout European and Australian territories on October 1st.

Set two years after the Willamette incident chronicled in the original Dead Rising® and three years before the start of Dead Rising 2, Chuck along with his young infected daughter, Katey, find themselves trapped in the zombie infested desert town of Still Creek. It’s up to Chuck to find a way out of town, and locate the Zombrex Katey must take to prevent her from joining the ranks of the undead.

Just like in the full game, players in Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO will use Chuck’s handyman skills and a roll of duct tape to combine two items to create powerful combo weapons. Not only do combo weapons make killing zombie sprees more fun but they also have the added benefit of earning Chuck additional ‘Prestige Points’ which in turn result in quicker leveling up.

Players who download Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO and then go on to buy Dead Rising 2 will be able to carry over character attributes earned such as ‘Player Level’, to a maximum of five, ‘Prestige Points’ alongside skills, ‘Combo Cards’ and a number of alternate outfits.

“With Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO we had two goals: provide newcomers with an easy point of entry to the Dead Rising universe, and give fans of the series an insight into what took place after Frank West survived the outbreak at the Willamette Mall,” said Keiji Inafune, Capcom’s Head of R&D Management Group and Executive Producer for Dead Rising 2. “We have certainly achieved both of these ambitions but I am equally pleased that we are able to give gamers so much unique and entertaining content at such a great price.”
