Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise is reportedly coming to Steam in 2021 according to an internal document by publisher Thunderful Group.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise was released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in 2020. The game was plagued with terrible performance and sub-par visuals while the narrative was a letdown coming off from the success of the first game. While the developers managed to patch some of the technical issues with it on the Nintendo Switch, it still doesn’t run as well as most other games on the platform.
All of this makes the PC version important because it can at least brute force through the technical issues. The listing for the PC version has popped up in the annual report of the Thunderful Group which has listed Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise among other games as part of the publishing portfolio in 2021.
This announcement wasn’t made public as of yet so treat this as more of a slip by the publisher. Regardless, the game coming to Steam is welcome news after the original game achieved cult-classic status as an Xbox 360 exclusive, the game was ported to the PS3 with a director’s cut that added new content, and then later ported to the PC and subsequently to the Nintendo Switch. According to the listing, this port will be developed by ToyBox.
The sequel was released in 2019 and had a tepid critical reception. Regardless, it was still a unique piece of videogame featuring the works of Hidetaka Swery who is known for his work on the original Deadly Premonition and D4 for the Xbox One.
