PlayStation 3 gets director's cut of cult classic Deadly Premonition

Release Date: 17/10/2012

Deadly Premonition, one of the most critically divisive games of recent years, is coming to PlayStation 3 in an improved director's cut edition.

The game, which follows an eccentric FBI agent investigating serial killings in a small American town, has built up a devoted fanbase on the Xbox 360. It's a weird mashup of horror, thriller and surreal comedy with many of its bizarre cutscenes becoming YouTube sensations in their own right. You have complete freedom to explore the town and the surrounding countryside, on foot and in cars, but characters will only be in certain places at certain times.

The game attracted both lavish praise and vicious criticism on release in 2010. "There is absolutely nothing in this industry that can compare to how weird and wonderful the whole experience is," said Destructoid's 10/10 review. "The Twin Peaks meets Resident Evil with a dash of Grand Theft Auto formula sounds pretty great, but it was well beyond the capabilities of this development team," declared IGN, giving it just 2/10.

It's the sort of game that must be played to be believed, and now it's coming back to PlayStation 3 with improved combat controls and additional scenarios. The visuals have also been given an HD makeover, and PlayStation Move will be supported.

"When Deadly Premonition went on sale, I got loads of feedback from the users, opinions, complaints," eccentric Japanese developer Swery told Eurogamer earlier this year. "So I've got a list of about 200 things they want improved. I'm going through that list and choosing the things I think will be good to work on."

As strange as it is, Deadly Premonition is certainly one of the most unique games of this console generation and open-minded PlayStation 3 owners should look forward to sampling its oddball charms early next year.
