Game Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchSep 5, 2019

Developer: TOYBOX Inc.

A mysterious serial murder occurs in Greenvale, a small town in North America surrounded by a beautiful nature. FBI agent York sets out with his "friend" Zach to face the case. Spend time with the town-people, soak your self into the nature and truth will gradually become clear. When you finally get to the truth, you'll find yourself difficult to leave Greenvale.

As unique a vision as video gaming has ever seen and one able to use its many incompetencies – including an unfortunate number of new ones – to entertain and surprise.

Deadly Premonition Origins looks bad on the switch, and there are various issues including poor frame rate and awful driving controls, but its just as bizarre as it ever was.

Deadly Premonition Origins is chock-full of major issues that in any other series would be reason enough to be cautious of its upcoming sequel. Despite this, the characters and the world of Greenvale are more than enough to make you forgive its fundamental technical flaws, as you can't help but fall for an absurdly fun narrative and a protagonist that keeps you invested throughout. You may play the game and utterly hate it, but we'd advise you at least give it a chance. It's such a strange and captivating experience that we wager many of you will become lifelong fans regardless of its myriad problems.

Deadly Premonition Origins, like previous versions of the game, is far from being perfect; like a million miles away. But it’s quirky, unique and memorable, and that goes a long way. Whether you follow the game through to its ending or not, it’ll stay on your mind for years to come.
