Our second trip to the lovely necropolis of Fortune City will cost less than our first, as it’s been revealed that Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will cost $40, as opposed to the full price its predecessor charged. Good thing too, because this game looks like much of the same, but with a few new weapons and the return of a slightly heftier Frank West. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, I just would’ve liked to see them do something more with a franchise that has so much potential.
If anything, Off the Record looks like it’ll be just as ridiculous as Dead Rising 2, with plenty of crazy costumes for Frank to stuff his more expansive frame into. I’m sure that’s enough of an incentive for most people to return to the series. We won’t know for sure if Frank’s return is as glorious as his debut until the game releases sometime this fall for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
