Open up Dead Rising 2: Case West on Dec. 27

Be sure to finish any games you receive as holiday gifts immediately upon receipt. Capcom is calling for your attention in Fortune City on December 27. That's when the XBLA-exclusive Dead Rising 2 epilogue, Case West, will slide down the virtual chimney and appear under the Xbox Live Marketplace-shaped tree. It's priced at 800 Microsoft Points.

For that price, you'll get more than just a suddenly sleazier-looking version of Dead Rising's protagonist (it must be those shades). Case West is a new scenario set inside the "Phenotrans Facility," offering co-op gameplay and, of course, the return of the photography mechanic.
