Expect more Frank West, says Capcom

We love the Dead Rising man apparently.

We should expect to see Dead Rising star Frank West in more of Capcom's games in future.

That's according to Capcom Unity hero Seth Killian, who told Destructoid that West remains popular even though he isn't actually in Dead Rising 2.

"For better or for worse, [Capcom] Japan has understood that 'the West' likes Frank," Killian explained.

"So maybe that's why he's called Frank West? I don't know...

"Rightly or wrongly [Capcom] Japan is convinced that Joe Six pack here in America love god damn Frank West. He will be making appearances in as many games as they can get him into."

Dead Rising 2 is due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 3rd September this year. Check out our most recent Dead Rising 2 hands-on for more.

The game's release will be preceded by a special prologue episode, Case Zero, which will be exclusive to moneybags Microsoft's Xbox 360.
