Earlier we told you a bit about Dead Rising 2‘s downloadable content, called Dead Rising: CASE ZERO. This playable prologue ties together the two games. We have a bit of new information on it, but one of the key points is that it is exclusive to Xbox 360. Nothing is planed for the PS3 yet, says producer Shinsaku Ohara. Yeah, so there’s that.
On CASE ZERO: Dead Rising 2 takes place 5 years after the first game, but the DLC takes place in the middle, some two years after the the original. Chuck heads from Las Vegas to Fortune City, and the story that takes place around this fills in the details between the two games. So far they haven’t talked about any cameos from characters from the first game, but they say that they’re not opposed to it either.
What’s really cool is that each area is packing in 1,200 zombies. We were told that the game could do more, but that’s what they’re pushing now. Yikes.
