What’s better than a chainsaw? A chainsaw on a stick. What’s better than a chainsaw on a stick? Two chainsaws on a stick – as seen in the new, full-length Dead Rising 2 trailer.

What’s better than two chainsaws on a stick? Two chainsaws on a stick attached to a motorcycle.

The trailer introduces Dead Rising 2 protagonist Chuck Greene, who fills in for Dead Rising‘s main character Frank West this time around. Chuck is stuck in a grand Fortune City casino (viva Las Vegas, baby!) with a bunch of shambling, mindless undead. What’s a man to do – other than wreak zombie havoc, of course.

Chuck Greene seems to be a man of many tastes and many talents. He expresses his sports enthusiast side by taking a baseball bat and swinging for the fences. He gets in touch with his inner sensitive musician by grabbing an electric guitar … and swinging for the fences. He exhibits his love for social drinking by … well, okay, we only see him drinking out of the fruity-looking cocktail, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t kill a zombie with it if he tried really hard.

More interestingly, though, seems to be Chuck’s “Handyman” skills, which appear to grant him the ability to make makeshift weapons – by, say, taping chainsaws to the end of a stick. That could be interesting.

On another note: Frank West, Chuck Greene… I’m predicting that Dead Rising 3‘s protagonist will be named something along the lines of “Jack Fox” or something.
