Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Trailer Shows Frank West’s Missing Years

Have you ever wondered what happened to Frank West after the incidents at Willamette Mall in the original Dead Rising game? Or, did you just take it for granted that he took a trip around the world to cover the things that photo journalists rush to snap?

From the visual information presented in the new Dead Rising 2: Off the Record trailer that Capcom has released, we now know why we haven’t heard much from everyone’s favourite creative zombie killer. His fame got to him and led not only to the bottle, but also to bankruptcy and self-loathing. Both are his reasons for trying out for the new Terror in Reality game show (likely the most morbid one ever created), which plays a big part in the world of Dead Rising 2.

Watch the rise and fall of Frank West below and think of some interesting contraptions to use against the shambling flesh eaters when Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is available on October 11, 2011.
