We hope you like Frank West, the hero of the original zombie shop-ocalypse Dead Rising, because he’s going to be popping up all over the place. It seems that Capcom of Japan believes that western gamers love the iconic war-hardened journalist and want to serve him up at every possible chance.
“For better or for worse, (Capcom of) Japan has understood that ‘the West’ likes Frank,” said Capcom’s Seth Killian. “So maybe that’s why he’s called Frank West? I don’t know… Rightly or wrongly (Capcom of) Japan is convinced that Joe Six pack here in America love God d*mn Frank West. He will be making appearances in as many games as they can get him into.”
West can currently be seen wielding a zombie filled shopping cart in the Wii-exclusive Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, leaving messages for survivors in The Passing DLC for Left 4 Dead 2, and will be playable in Lost Planet 2. We wonder where else Capcom is going to use him.
