Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on July 10, 2020 as it was announced by Nintendo. The game was announced back on September 5, 2019 by Rising Star Games and TOYBOX.
The sequel is being developed by TOYBOX, and will follow the “Most Polarizing Survival Horror Game” Deadly Premonition. In order to maintain the game true to the original, the “original masterminds” have been brought back in order to offer the same aura that fans loved. Scriptwriter/Director Swery and Producer Tomio Kanazawa are part of the development team, as well as the Art Direction by Shuhou Imai and music composed by Satoshi Okubo.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is an open-world game set in the small town of Le Carré. Your story starts in Boston, where it turns out FBI Special Agent Francis York Morgan will have to revisit the case he thought was solved in 2005. You will be solving various murders and crimes while jumping between 2005 and 2019 in true Deadly Premonition fashion.
“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.”
And finally, a note from Swery:
“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!”
