The sequel to cult classic Deadly Premonition, known as Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise, obtained a new cinematic trailer. In it, the match is introduced as a TV show, mirroring the original and the intentional parallels with Twin peaks. Additionally, the trailer reveals the game’s launch date to be July 10th, 2020. Deadly Premonition 2 will soon be a Nintendo Switch exclusive.
It’s a gorgeous assortment of haughty suggestions and shoddy execution that leaves many confused or angry, but never indifferent. I often describe it as Twin Peaks as made by Tommy Wiseau of The Room fame, though Tommy Wiseau made video games instead of movies. In short, it is such a mess that it is undeniably a work of art. If you haven’t experienced it, stop whatever you’re doing, and go play it.
Thus, it is with fantastic exultation that I bring you the brand new trailer published for the sequel, Deadly Premonition two: A Blessing in Disguise. It plays as opening credits into some horror / detective TV series, obviously leaning into the comparisons made with Twin Peaks by many. Except, when it comes to the trailer specifically, it clearly mimics the style of the legitimate Detective credits, what with the visuals and dark, country-ish music. Also, and above all, the trailer shows the games launch date: July 10th, 2020. Mark your calendars.
I too could be marking my calendar, but sadly, Deadly Premonition two is a Nintendo Change exclusive. I don’t own one, therefore I can only hope that the game will come out to some other stage later on. Those of you who do have a Switch, feast your eyes on the trailer below, and, if the sequel is anything like the original, get ready to experience something truly unique.
