That changed today, with Rising Star Games confirming Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut.
This updated version of the game, exclusive to PS3, includes new “scenarios,” reworked combat controls, and downloadable content to “expand the mystery beyond the original game.” That sounds like there will be new material for both players who want to play Deadly Premonition a second time (or coming to it for the first time), and content for anyone who wants the closest thing to a sequel.
That we’re even seeing Swerey 65 being given a chance to dip back into Deadly Premonition is impressive enough. I’m curious what the new material will be like. Deadly Premonition was created in a vacuum, and this new content comes after everyone heaped critical but enthusiastic praise on the game. Will that reaction influence what Swery 65 ends up creating?
Guess we’ll find out early next year. The Director’s Cut launches in the first quarter of 2013.
