Dead Rising 2: Case West, the second Dead Rising 2 Xbox LIVE Arcade exclusive title, will be released on December 27 priced 800 MS Points, Capcom has announced.

Picking up where Dead Rising 2 left off, players will take control of Chuck and Dead Rising's Frank West. The two survivors must infiltrate the Phenotrans Facility in an attempt to uncover the company's murky dealings.

The downloadable game will feature new combo weapons to create, new enemies to test them on and the return of the ability to capture those magic moments on camera. The game is playable in both single-player and co-op.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero hit XBLA before the launch of Dead Rising 2 and achieved great success at a 400 MS Points price point - the promise of experiencing new Dead Rising gameplay, plus its relative low cost made it hard for fans to resist.

Now, however, fans have already experienced Dead Rising 2 and perhaps won't be so keen on the idea of playing more of the same, especially at twice the price of Case Zero.

I, for one, am very much interested in 'more of the same'. However, this release isn't that mundane at all - new combo cards, new moves, new enemies, a new character, and a new core mechanic (for DR2) of photography. Bit of a flawed summary there, James, sorry...

Even if it were 1200 msp, I'd be purchasing the moment it becomes available.

I just hope Blue Castle Games see fit to expand the main game with the new outfits/combo cards/weapons found in here, as well expansion DLC for the main game. So much potential for adding in a new additional casino or two, as well as a few more Vegasy-themed Terror is Reality games.
