During the Nintendo Direct earlier today, Rising Star Games and TOYBOX announced that Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise will come out for the Nintendo Switch in 2020.
An open-world game set in Le Carré, this title starts players in Boston. While there, FBI Special Agent Francis York Morgan from the original is tasked with revisiting the case he solved back in 2005. Throughout the game, players will jump between 2005 and 2019.
Scriptwriter/Director Swery will make his return for the title, along with Producer Tomio Kanazawa. Art Direction will be fielded by Shuhou Imai, and the music composition is being handled by Satoshi Okubo.

According to TOYBOX COO and Producer Tomio Kanazawa:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”After completing the Director’s Cut, Swery and I discussed in-depth about the ways we could continue the world of Deadly Premonition. In reaching here, we shared some laughter together and at times quarreled, but we persisted with our voyage and I am thrilled that we finally made it to this point.”[/testimonials]
Brjánn Sigurgeirsson of Rising Star Games, added:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“Only a few games have managed to stir up emotions the way the original Deadly Premonition did. Ten years later we’re literally thrilled to continue down this path to find out where Swery and his team take us.”[/testimonials]
Finally, Swery had to say the following:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“Roughly 10 years have passed since the original was released in 2010. Now, a miracle has happened, and I have a chance to reunite with my best friend – something I never thought would be possible. I’m working hard day and night while also looking back on the past to make sure this becomes something that doesn’t change no matter how much time passes, while also adapting to and interlocking with the current era – a game that encompasses all. Please get yourself a cup of coffee and wait for it to be completed!”[/testimonials]
