On August 31, 2010, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO will be available for download exclusively on Xbox LIVE arcade. The title will run 400 Microsoft Points ($5), and it will fill players in on what happens two years after the original Dead Rising and three years before the upcoming Dead Rising 2. It will also help introduce the protagonist of Dead Rising 2, Chuck Greene.

“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.”

It is also neat to note that what you do in CASE ZERO will carry to Dead Rising 2 when it releases on September 28, 2010.
