When Capcom Vancouver first announced the Dead Rising 2: Off the Record spin-off game back in April, many fans suggested that it should have actually been released as downloadable content for Dead Rising 2. Others even complained that it was just a cynical cash-in.
Two of the main concerns about the spin-off — which re-imagines the Dead Rising 2 game from Frank West’s perspective — were how different it would be, and how much it would cost. As Wesley Yin-Poole from Eurogamer reports, the developer has now addressed the concerns.
Not only did the developer announce the North American price for the game during E3 2011 last week, but they also revealed a few details. This was done via a video showcasing the new Theme Park environment, which is said to be bigger than any area found in Dead Rising 2.
The Dead Rising 2: Off the Record game also comes with a brand new story, as well as new weapons, combo weapons, bosses, food items, clothing and new vehicles. In fact, executive producer Jason Leigh says that the new game is much bigger than the Dead Rising 2 title was.
As for the price, North Americans can expect to pay $39.99 for the upcoming Dead Rising 2: Off the Record spin-off. We have no news on when it will be released as of yet, but we’ll keep you informed. You can view a trailer for the new game via the eurogamer.net link.
