One of the most desired sequels has been announced and is heading to the Switch. Rising Star Games and TOYBOX will be releasing Deadly Premoniton 2: A Blessing in Disguise in 2020. Not only that but Swery and Tomio Kanazawa have returned to put their stamp on the sequel. Also involved are Shuhou Imai who are heading up Art Direction while music is composed by Satoshi Okubo.
A Blessing in Disguise sees the return of FBI agent Francis York Morgan set in the town of Le Carré. The previously presumed solved case will be revisited as you go between 2005 and 2019.
“After completing the Director’s Cut, Swery and I discussed in-depth about the ways we could continue the world of Deadly Premonition. In reaching here, we shared some laughter together and at times quarrelled, but we persisted with our voyage and I am thrilled that we finally made it to this point,” says TOYBOX COO and Producer Tomio Kanazawa.
“Only a few games have managed to stir up emotions the way the original Deadly Premonition did,” says Brjánn Sigurgeirsson of Rising Star Games. “Ten years later we’re literally thrilled to continue down this path to find out where Swery and his team take us.”
“Roughly 10 years have passed since the original was released in 2010. Now, a miracle has happened, and I have a chance to reunite with my best friend – something I never thought would be possible.
I’m working hard day and night while also looking back on the past to make sure this becomes something that doesn’t change no matter how much time passes, while also adapting to and interlocking with the current era – a game that encompasses all. Please get yourself a cup of coffee and wait for it to be completed!” says Director and Scriptwriter Swery.
For those of you that are still to play Deadly Premonition you’re in luck! In addition to the sequel, Deadly Premonition, titled Deadly Premonition Origins, is available to download from the eShop right now. At least now you have the chance to see where it all began.
Those in North America will also be getting a retail version. Askys Games will release a physical Collectors Edition on thw Switch this November.
