Tokyo Game Show 2010: Capcom Announces Dead Rising 2: Case West

leave a comment »

Presumably the 500,000 units that the Dead Rising 2 Prologue: Case Zero has sold has emboldened Capcom, since today they have announced another XBLA exclusive Dead Rising 2 episode, this one taking place after the events of the game instead of before it.

Dead Rising 2: Case West will be a downloadable episode exclusively for XBLA and continues after the main story of Dead Rising 2 has concluded.

Capcom unveiled the title by showing a short teaser of the game. In the teaser, Dead Rising 2 hero Chuck Greene is seen gazing out over Fortune City saying he must prove his innocence, but for this to happen he’ll be needing some help with none other than Dead Rising 1 hero Frank West showing up.

If they can provide a similarly replayable experience to Case Zero and at a similarly pleasing price point, there is no reason why this shouldn’t be another hit for Capcom.

Capcom obviously think the same, since they also announced that they have purchased the developer of Dead Rising 2; Blue Castle Games, renaming them Blue Castle Studios Vancouver.
