There were plenty of Dead Rising fans who were upset to see a new main character in Dead Rising 2, but looks like Capcom has listened to the fans and is releasing an alternate take of Dead Rising 2 with Frank West:

"Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, sees Wilamette survivor and hero of Dead Rising®, photojournalist Frank West, take centre stage as players experience a very different interpretation of events in this, a reimagining of the Fortune City outbreak. Forget what took place in Dead Rising® 2, this is Frank’s story told as only he can.

This alternate storyline means an all new Dead Rising 2 experience; with Frank facing new missions, new enemies, new combo-weapons with which to defeat them plus a brand new Fortune City attraction to explore. Complimenting the new narrative and action of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record are enhancements to elements such as the save system and the co-op experience to deliver more satisfying gameplay. Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is scheduled for release on PS3™, Xbox 360 and Windows® PCs this autumn."

This is going to be a full retail disc release, so I'm really curious to see if the game will be value priced or if they are charging the same price as a full game. We'll have more information on Dead Rising 2: Off The Record as it is released.
