Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise will offer a dose of the surreal in July.

Ten years after it released to wildly polarized reviews, Hidetaka Suehiro’s cult hit is finally getting a sequel. Last year, this was one of the biggest surprises at Nintendo’s September Direct. Now, we have a release date.

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is set to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch on July 10. It’s a prequel set 14 years before the original 2010 open-world survival horror game.


“Agent Francis York Morgan returns! Track down a vicious serial killer and explore the fictional town of Le Carré in the surreal #DeadlyPremonition2: A Blessing in Disguise, directed by @Swery65,” Nintendo of America tweeted this morning.

If you’ve never experienced the original game, it’s available on Switch, Steam and on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Be warned though: it’s a divisive game. As we noted when the sequel was first announced, IGN damned it with a 2 while Destructoid lauded it with a 10.
