Rising Star Games and TOYBOX Inc. have confirmed a release date for Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise on Nintendo Switch.
The developer has worked with director and scriptwriter Hidetaka “SWERY65” Suehiro and producer Tomio Kanazawa on the open-world mystery adventure game, with Shuhou Imai handling art direction and music from composer Satoshi Okubo.
Your story starts in present-day Boston, where FBI special agent Francis York Morgan must revisit the case he thought he had solved in 2005.
Both a prequel and sequel, you must work to uncover the truth behind a murder mystery into the Le Carré serial killer. Through the memories of a former FBI agent, you will solve murders and crimes committed in 2019 while also going back in time to 2005 to unravel the mystery.
You will be able to travel around the otherwise peaceful town by foot or skateboard, which can be upgraded to improve its speed or your ability to land more difficult tricks.
“As of April 2020, the whole world is facing a very difficult situation and I was conflicted and reluctant to announce the release date under these circumstances,” SWERY explains.
“However, many fans have been asking me ‘Tell us the release date of Deadly Premonition 2 as soon as possible!’ or ‘I can’t wait to go on travels with York again!
“Having given some thought to the matter, and especially because of the current circumstances, I felt it was important to let everyone know, even if only slightly, some happy news. So at long last, here is the release date announcement!
“This Summer, I hope you enjoy an unprecedented experience with York together with brand new characters in Louisiana, Southern United States! I Love You All!”
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 10th July 2020.
