Dan posted the news
that Capcom has finally set a firm date on the release of the upcoming Dead Rising 2
for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. That is all well and good, but what about that 360 exclusive prequel-demo thingy coming first?
Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
is still coming as an exclusive download and will serve as a pseudo demo for the new game. This demo serves a dual purpose though; not only will it give you a taste of the upcoming game, but it will also bridge the storyline gap between the first game and the new one. Early reports are stating that any money and experience earned during the course of the prequel will be carried over to the retail release of the game. Case Zero
will have a level-cap though, which is set at 5.
During E3, Capcom released a new storyline trailer for Case Zero which gives you a little bit of insight on just what is going on during the case of this new chapter. Take a look:
