The open-world survival horror game Deadly Premonition has garnered a cult following since its release in 2010; now, exactly 10 years later, it’s finally getting a sequel. Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise releases on Nintendo Switch July 10, and you can pre-order it right now.
Like the first game, Deadly Premonition 2 is an open-world, single-player adventure and follows FBI agent Francis York Morgan as he investigates a mysterious serial murder case in the fictional town of Le Carré within New Orleans. You’ll be able to travel freely by foot or by skateboard, as in the first game, and there will also be various mini-games like bowling, bayou rides, and skateboard challenges. You’ll also be able to customize your character and skateboard.
Deadly Premonition 2 is up for pre-order–thankfully, it’s a little cheaper than the standard new Switch release, selling for $50. You can pre-order now at select retailers to get a physical copy by release day; of course, you can always pre-order directly from the Eshop too.

The game on its own is selling for $50. Its box art (shown above) is incredibly striking and potentially worth grabbing the physical edition for.
Deadly Premonition Origins Collector’s Edition
If you never played through the first game and want to check out where the story began, you can get a physical copy of Deadly Premonition Origins to have alongside your copy of Deadly Premonition 2. The standard edition is on sale for $35.90 at Amazon.
A Collector’s Edition of Deadly Premonition Origins is also available. The Collector’s Edition includes a set of six metal pin badges in a collectible case and two collectible postcards of original artwork from director Hidetaka Suehiro’s concept notebook. It’s also a few bucks off at Amazon right now, where you can grab it for $44.89.
The original Deadly Premonition was an extremely divisive game in terms of reviews, but it earned a 7/10 in GameSpot’s Deadly Premonition review for its bizarre and entertaining story, memorable cast, and surprising twists despite its poor visuals and terrible sound effects. “The foibles and frailties quickly fade when you realize that Deadly Premonition possesses one of video gaming’s most treasured traits: unpredictability,” wrote Kevin VanOrd. “And just as the story and gameplay cover remarkably varied ground, so too will your emotions waver, tossed about by funny characterizations, shocking twists, and touching revelations that will affect all but the most jaded players. In most games, Deadly Premonition’s archaic gameplay mechanics and narrative quirks would be laughable, if not pitiable. But in context, they combine to create a truly unique experience that cribs from various sources but resembles none of them.”
