Last week we reported that Frank West – protagonist of the first Dead Rising game would make his return in the sequel, during an Xbox 360 exclusive chapter of downloadable content. He and new boy Chuck appear to be teaming up to take down those responsible for the Zombie outbreak.
However, now we can also report that Rob Barrett, executive producer at Blue Castle Games – the Canadian studio developing Dead Rising 2 in conjunction with Capcom – has confirmed that with the return of Frank, will come the return of photography. When asked if you would be able to take photographs in the add-on, he stated, “It’s back. It’s part of Frank. So when Frank comes back, so does the photography.”
So what did you think of Dead Rising: Case Zero? Do you think releasing extra chapters of the game as paid extras is a good idea? Happy to just see photography back in a Zombie game? Let us know - state your views in our forums.
Dead Rising 2 will be released on September 24th in Europe & September 28th in North America. Case West is an Xbox 360 exclusive. A release date has not yet been announced.
