SWERY's cult horror hit Deadly Premonition will arrive on PS3 in a revamped Director's Cut edition that supports the PlayStation Move peripheral and stereoscopic 3D. Better yet, it will hit Europe first when it releases in early 2013.
Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut will be remastered into "full HD" (presumably 1080p), containing a new story arc, scenario and DLC extras that continues the sensational plot from the original game. Improved controls will hopefully remove some of the aggravation that turned many players off its predecessor, while Move support and should give their respective adopters something new to play.
"Contrary to the two-year-Old Original, the Game Will Now be in full HD," reads the announcement post on Access Games' website. "Been Other Things have changed as well, etc Such as the player controls. Counts The list of improvements over 100 items!"
"It's very easy to control now, so even people who didn't play the original should have no doubts about taking the plunge this time."
Of course there are new elements as well, such as extra scenarios and PlayStation Move support, so people who already completed the game before will find plenty of new stuff to like as well. In any case, we tried to create this Director's Cut in such a way that the appearance of the game world would be maintained, while also being accessible to newcomers and old fans."
Swery has apparently poured a huge amount of fan feedback into the Director's Cut, and hopes that new players will appreciate the new features.
"I've been especially picky about pouring the thoughts and feelings I've experienced since the release of the original into this game in such a way that it really makes you feel that 2 years have passed since then."
"I'll leave it up to you to decide whether I succeeded or failed."
Despite some miserable core gameplay mechanics, Deadly Premonition delivered some of the most fleshed-out and kooky characters, effective creeping horror and mature storylines of this generation when it released on Xbox 360 in 2010.
