Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut becomes a little more real (Update 2: March 15th release)
The Playstation Blog has finally pulled the lid off of the Deadly Premonition re-release! No images of the game have been released, but word that it still exists is comforting. Rising Star Games seem to be the publisher for the North American and European releases.
Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut contains HD graphics (they weren’t that bad), new controls, a new scenario, and DLC support.
It’s good to see the game finally get a mention. I expect marketing and material to release very soon! If you have yet to experience the brilliance that the original game is, for whatever reason, definitely look into picking this re-release up. Now we wait for a release date and pricing. Wee!
Update: Rising Star Games has released the press release for the upcoming game. Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut is set to release in the first quarter of 2013 exclusively for the PS3.
Update 2: According to the Rising Star Games website, expect the game to release on March 15th, 2013.
