UPDATE 6/26/20: Nintendo and Toybox Inc. released a new trailer for next month’s Deadly Premonition 2, taking us to the town of Le Carré, Louisiana. You can watch it here!

Deadly Premonition came out a decade ago, and in that decade, it has earned quite the reputation. Gamasutra named one of the “Best Cult Games.” GamesRadar and GameSpot called it the “Best Worst Game” and “Most Surprisingly Good Game” respectively.

In September of last year, Nintendo surprised (almost) everyone with news of a sequel titled Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise. Developed by Toybox Inc. and published by Rising Star Games, the sequel will find you in Boston in 2019, as “FBI agent Aaliyah Davis opens an investigation into an old case, she also opens a door to the unknown. A door that also takes us back to New Orleans, 14 years ago.”

It sounds like that’s where Francis “York” Morgan, the protagonist of the first game, comes into play. According to September’s Nintendo Direct that announced the sequel, “The journey between past and present with take Aaliyah and York on a winding path.”

You’ll be able to play Deadly Premonition 2 on the Nintendo Switch on July 10th. You can play the first game now on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
