DR2 Saves Unlock Costumes for DR2: Off the Record

By Andrew Ogley, 7 years ago
If you’re a Dead Rising fan who still hasn’t had their fix of zombie slaughter through Dead Rising (Xbox 360), Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360), Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, and http://www.trueachievements.com/DEADRISING2CASE-WEST-xb....htm, you’re probably eagerly awaiting the arrival of the “alternative” story featuring the original hero Frank West in Dead Rising 2: Off The Record.

Unfortunately, you’ll still have to wait a little while, as the game won’t be hitting the shelves until October 11th (in North America, and October 14th in Europe), but in the meantime make sure that you don’t delete your DR2 save files.

Silconera, have revealed that the latest game in the franchise will use previous DR2 save files to unlock bonus content. In this case, the bonus is the jacket belonging to Chuck Greene, our current zombie slayer and all-round good guy. This will be available for the franchise's original poster boy and returning hero, Frank West, to wear in-game. What exactly that does for Frank, other than making him look a little younger and a little cooler, still remains unclear. However, this could well be the first case of in-game virtual cosplay with one videogame character dressing up as another ... something for Frank to investigate in the meantime?
