Capcom have confirmed that Dead Rising 2: Case West
will release this December. The game reintroduces Frank West to aid Chuck in his investigation into Phenotrans and help to find proof of its involvement with the zombie outbreaks.
Set immediately after the events of Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: CASE WEST sees Frank team up with Chuck Greene for some serious co-op action as the pair embarks on a brand new case set in the Phenotrans Facility on the outskirts of Fortune City.
Here Chuck and Frank will face new challenges and new enemies but will also have access to new weapons, items and the ability to create a number of new Combo weapons such as the janitor’s favourite, the ‘Zap & Shine’ and the ominous sounding ‘Reaper’. Just as in the full game, players will have the opportunity to rescue human survivors who have so far escaped the clutches of the zombie horde.
Wherever he finds himself Frank is always ready to capture the moment with his trusty camera and Dead Rising 2: CASE WEST is no exception. Frank is able to take photographs of key evidence that will provide indisputable proof of Phenotrans’ part in the zombie outbreaks, not just in Fortune City, but across the United States. As the story unfolds expect to see cameo appearances from other characters from Dead Rising that will provide further links to the original game.
If enjoyed as a solo experience, the player will take control of Chuck with Frank’s behavior and actions controlled by AI. In this mode Frank cannot be killed.

The game was announced
back in September, but a price has not yet been confirmed for the game. Here's hoping that, like Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
, it will only cost 400 MSP.
