Torrance, Calif.—September 4, 2019—Aksys Games announced today that they will be publishing Deadly Premonition Origins on the Nintendo Switch at retail in North America this November!
Announced during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation alongside a long-awaited sequel, Deadly Premonition Origins lets long-time fans and newcomers alike play the original cult classic survival-horror game ‘Deadly Premonition’ — released on the Xbox 360 in 2010 — on the Nintendo Switch for the first time. Directed by video game industry legend SWERY65 (‘D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die’, ‘The Good Life’), Deadly Premonition has the player guide FBI Special Agent Francis York Morgan as he investigates the identity of the Raincoat Killer. Interact with a roster of eccentric, memorable characters, fight off peculiar paranormal forces, and stare into cups of coffee to solve the case in this legendarily off-the-wall title.
Regularly regarded as an example of ‘games as art’, Deadly Premonition holds the Guinness World Record for the most critically polarizing survival-horror game, cementing its status as a cult classic for the genre.
