Deadly Premonition 2 Will Bring Its Special Brand of Insanity to Switch in July


Get ready for a weird summer, because Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise has a release date. This was announced via a wonderfully-cheesy partially live-action trailer, featuring snakes, flaming skulls, big butts in pot-leaf booty shorts, and one heck of a rockin’ theme song. Check it all out, below.

For those unfamiliar, the original Deadly Premonition introduced the world to cult creator Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, and was the rare case of a “so bad it’s good” video game. Will Deadly Premonition 2 be able to capture the weird magic of the original? It’ll be tough, but the trailer I just posted is cheesy enough that I have hope.
