News: Zombie killin' is the cheapest sport there is.



Capcom has announced a release date and a price for their upcoming Xbox Live Arcade prequel to Dead Rising 2. Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will be added to the XBLA on August 31 for the low, low price of 400 Microsoft Points ($5). For those keeping track at home, the last XBLA title to be sold at $5 was Chime back in February.

Case Zero will set the stage for Dead Rising 2 by introducing players to the sequel's hero, Chuck Greene. According to Capcom, it will also serve as a quasi-demo for Dead Rising 2:

Set two years after the Willamette incident chronicled in the original Dead Rising and three years before the start of Dead Rising 2, Chuck along with his young infected daughter, Katey, find themselves trapped in the zombie infested desert town of Still Creek. It's up to Chuck to find a way out of town, and locate the Zombrex Katey must take to prevent her from joining the ranks of the undead.




Dead Rising 2 and Case Zero will sync up as players will be able to carry over character attributes earned such as Player Level (up to Level 5), Prestige Points, Combo Cards and a number of alternate outfits.

?With Dead Rising 2: Case Zero we had two goals: provide newcomers with an easy point of entry to the Dead Rising universe, and give fans of the series an insight into what took place after Frank West survived the outbreak at the Willamette Mall,? said Keiji Inafune, Capcom's Head of R&D Management Group and Executive Producer for Dead Rising 2. ?We have certainly achieved both of these ambitions but I am equally pleased that we are able to give gamers so much unique and entertaining content at such a great price.?

We'll have more soon.
