The entirety of the gaming universe is currently in Los Angeles at E3 this week, and every bit of gaming goodness is coming from the show floor. Our friends over at Kotaku were kind enough to share this new teaser trailer for the Dead Rising 2 prequel content due out soon from Capcom -- and it looks surprisingly awesome.

If you didn't know, Dead Rising 2 takes place in the same world as the first game, but with a new main character and a brand new location for the zombie outbreak (Las Vegas). However, since there's a three year gap between the first title and this new zombie adventure, Capcom decided that a prequel story, entitled Case Zero, was in order to help bridge the gap.

Case Zero takes place in the desert town of Still Creek, and introduces new main character Chuck Greene and his daughter Katie as they deal with a zombie outbreak.

Capcom promises that people who spend money on the title -- which isn't a full-fledged game, but is much more than a mere demo -- will get at least three hours of gameplay from the experience, and probably more if they want to play around with all the inventive ways to kill the undead.

Check out the trailer after the break -- it's quite good. Currently, Case Zero is an Xbox 360 exclusive but that could change at some point in the not too distant future.
