Frank West Takes A Trip To Fortune City For Dead Rising 2

A blurry "photo" that's appeared on Dead Rising 2's Tape It Or Die blog shows the game's protagonist Chuck Greene getting a little help from a journalist who has been known to cover wars.

While it's pretty difficult to tell from the screenshot, we're pretty sure that blurry guy busting heads with Chuck is none other than Frank West from the original Dead Rising. The pic showed up as part of a post on the viral Dead Rising 2 site Tape It Or Die, where survivor Johnny Pipes recounts seeing someone else fighting by Greene's side.

So, I go after him. But then I see some other dude. Vaguely recognised him. Maybe saw him at a party a few years back. Maybe a celebrity. Can't remember his name, though. Phil? Floyd? Regardless, he was fighting zombies, too. It was like Oktoberfest! But replace beer with zombies! And drinking with slaughter! It was like I'd died and gone to heaven.

That's Frank, buddy.

So where does Frank West fit into Dead Rising 2? Well, we know of one place he'd fit quite nicely. Last we checked the cooperative multiplayer mode had both players playing as Chuck. Frankly I'd much rather play two different characters, wouldn't you?

    lol, Frankly, bad pun.

    I'd personally love frank to be my back-up in co-op

    Having Frank in co-op still wouldn't make up for the fact that there's no split-screen. It would be nice, but I think that's still what's going to stop me getting the game. That and I hate save systems where you have to go to certain points to save. I get it, it increases the 'tension,' but its so damn inconveniant.

      That said, I'll still probably get the game. Aside from the save system, the first game was completely awesome, and the second looks better in all respects, except the save system. And it looks pretty.

    This makes me a sad panda. As most of my friends have PS3's, and I refuse to pay for Xbox Live, the on-line co-op mode will be out of my grasp :(. I'm especially sad because I loved Frank West, and now my chance to get to play as him again has slipped away... :(

      If his model is in the game, I have a feeling that you'll be able to unlock him ;)
