SWERY's infamous Deadly Premonition gets a sequel, as it was announced today during the Nintendo Direct.

Called Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise, players seem to tackle two different stories and experience how they coincide with one another. One takes place in Boston as a female detective unravels an old serial killer case. Another takes players back to New Orleans, 14 years ago with an FBI agent named York. Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is set to launch on Nintendo Switch next year, 2020. Fans of the previous game will be pleased to know that Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is directed by Swery, and per an announcement on Twitter.


A port of the first game, now called Deadly Premonition: Origins, is also available on the Nintendo eShop later today. The port is being done by Aussie studio Toybox who is also doing development under director Hidetaka Swery along with publisher Rising Star. Physical retail copies will be published by Aksys Games in North America, and Numbskull Games in Europe and Australia this November, but you can download it right now on the Nintendo eShop.

Deadly Premonition is an adventure title where players take the role of York (who makes an appearance in the sequel, it seems), who is tasked with solving a murder. It sounds fairly routine, but Deadly Premonition features elements of horror and the supernatural, combined with an open world. In North America, Arksys Games will publish Deadly Premonition: Origins' retail copy, while Numskull Games brings it to Europe and Australia - they even hint at a collector's edition this November.

Stay tuned for more information on Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise when its launch date draws near.



Quick Take

I remember watching X-Play on G4TV a while back, and they highlighted the utter weirdness of Deadly Premonition. Back then, I couldn't tell if it was a good game, a bad game, or something so bad it was good. I don't think it matters since I see that fans of the serious really do enjoy it for what it is. Me? I might be tempted to try it out now that it's on the eShop.
