Deadly Premonition 2?!
At last night’s September Direct, Nintendo continued to deliver Switch games we never, ever dreamed we’d see. The publisher packed a megaton of surprises into the 40-minute presentation. Most shocking of all? The announcement that Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro’s cult hit Deadly Premonition.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is a prequel to the original 2010 open-world survival horror game. DP2 introduces Aaliyah Davis, an FBI agent investigating a case from 14 years earlier, initially investigated by Francis York Morgan, the protagonist of the first game.
Meanwhile, on Twitter, Swery was as cheery and upbeat as ever about the game’s announcement.

To hold fans over until Deadly Premonition 2’s 2020 release, Nintendo has released a port of the first game. The re-release is called Deadly Premonition Origins.
