Poor Frank West. After the Willamette Mall incident in the first Dead Rising, he had a meteoric rise to stardom, only to watch it all slip away. Now you can watch the rise and fall of Frank West (as well as some boss new gameplay footage) in the launch trailer for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. Check it out after the break.
The trailer, via Joystiq, shows us a fragmented history of Frank's life after Willamette, as well as a sizable chunk of gameplay. I'm excited to see not just the return of the weapon customization system from Dead Rising 2, but also (hopefully) the photography from the first game.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be released October 11th, 2011 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
