Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut

Rising Star Games will launch Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut for PlayStation 3 on April 30, 2013, it has announced.

Developed by Access Games under creator Hidetaka “Swery65″ Suehiro, the mystery adventure game will feature stereoscopic 3D and PlayStation Move support, as well as post-launch costume, car, item, and housing download content.

The game, an enhanced version of the 2010-launched Xbox 360 edition, will offer a new branching ending, brand new scenarios, and numerous other bonuses, including a new in-game camera and re-designed controls.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut will have an MSRP of $39.99.

    • Budgiecat

      That’s stupid

      • devovit

        why because i dont want to throw away my money

        • Budgiecat

          but you are. You’d be getting both versions for no reason.

  • Bloodios

    I’m not sure if I saw any improvement but there were slowdowns, weird sound clippings, one instance of geometry pop-in, and dodgy subtitiles timing. To anyone who has played the original Xbox 360 version, do you remember experiencing such issue?

    • devovit

      graphically i doubt they can do anything more but make it brighter. how is the actual game?

      • Bloodios

        I haven’t played the the game yet. I only stated what I saw from those three clips. However, my friend, who imported the PS3 version, said that there was several performance issues, like noticeable slowdowns in many scenarios… which is why I would like to find out how the original Xbox 360 version was and compare it with the upcoming Director’s Cut and see what have actually been improved upon.

    That was so weird but in a good way…like Katamari Dacamcy and I loved that game!

      The game was a cult hit when it launched back on Xbox 360. It even holds a Guiness World Record as the “Most Critically Polarizing Survival Horror Game.” Considering my Xbox died while I was still playing (I was at the hospital early in the beginning of the game, IIRC), I’m really looking forward to this. =D

        Holy crap, really? All I’ve heard is that its one of those things where its so bad its good kind of deals :D Yay for weird games!
