I don't understand how this isn't on the PS4.

Is SWERY involved with this tho? Dunno how I would feel about a non SWERY Deadly Premonition.

If its not as good an entry we can always ignore it. The fact the first game lay the blueprint out of what a Deadly Premonition game can be gives them an excellent starting point.

If theres more than one song on the one radio channel I'll be hugely disappointed.

This place is doing the limited physical release for the first one in Europe/Australia (at least). Not sure if they're the only ones doing it and will ship to US, or if someone else in the US is doing it:

Well damn, wish I still had a Switch. Heard good things about the original game, and the sequel looks fun.

So many questions:

  • Is Nintendo publishing and/or financing either Origins or the sequel?
  • Will origins be based on the director's cut of the game or the original?
  • What changes, if any, are there in Origins from whatever version it's based on?
  • Is my body ready?

Wish they could release first one physical. I have it on PS3 though. Never beat it. Its really weird/quirky. Its like twin peaks.

This is great news.

Origins isn't published by Rising Star Games (but they are "excited' about it).

Sounds like DP2 is timed exclusive (they are answering everyone's questions but the XB/PS4 ones.

I just hope it doesn't fall into the trap of trying too hard to recapture the spirit of the original, as a lot of sudden sequels to cult classics have ended up.

There was such a purity to the first game which I feel would be impossible to recreate due to the new awareness from players/developers.

If it keeps mirroring Twin Peaks that IMO is one of the few shows that had a massive gap and came back at the same quality as which it left.

Like Bon Jovi I'm going to keep the faith!

I really enjoyed the first. It had some issues/bugs, but it had so much charm and quirk that it was easy to forgive.

Coincidentally I'm rewatching the original Twin Peaks series at the moment too.

I'm not usually a graphics whore, but these graphics and animations are pretty hard to stomach.
