THE CULT CLASSIC MYSTERY THRILLER RETURNS! Seeds sprout. Roots take hold. Trees grow, covering all around in shadow. But even when light shines on the ground below, the roots remain, tendrils spiralling deeper into the darkness…and the story begins anew. Dig deep and unearth the evil lurking beneath a seemingly innocent town in Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise, only for Nintendo Switch. TWO CASES, ONE MYSTERY Boston, 2019. FBI Special Agents Aaliyah Davis and Simon Jones, looking into a case long-thought solved, find themselves on the doorstep of a person of interest. Reports of a few missing bodies wouldn’t normally interest the FBI, but something about this case just doesn’t add up. Despite having few leads to go on, the pair hope asking this person the right questions about the ‘red tree’ might get them somewhere. But as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for – some cases are best left closed… Louisiana, 2005. A series of strange murders has blighted the backwater town of Le Carré and the FBI sends one of its young recruits, Special Agent Francis York Morgan, to investigate. Befriended by the sheriff’s daughter, who seems older than her years, the two soon set out together to find the truth. On the surface, the peaceful town and its kind residents seem harmless enough. But a darkness grows beneath and, as casualties mount up, Special Agent Morgan must find those responsible before it swallows him too… TRUE DETECTIVES YOUR FUTURE IS YOUR PAST Set both nine years after and five years before the original game, Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise features not one, but two protagonists. Lead them to discover an astonishing truth that will send both to the brink of madness. In the present, unravel a cold case as Special Agent Davis through questioning, presenting evidence and reviewing key testimonies that reveal long-buried secrets. In the past, help Special Agent Morgan investigate a spate of brutal murders. Explore Le Carré on foot or via skateboard, interact with its citizens, uncover clues and dabble in voodoo to discover the darker side of this seemingly peaceful town… TIME TO SPARE The town of Le Carré offers more than just a case for Special Agent Morgan to solve. From your base at the Casa Pineapple hotel, pick up requests from the locals that can bolster your hunt for the killer. Alternatively, spend time enjoying some of the local pastimes: - Bowling: Head to Bar Alexus and bowl a few frames down the alley. A perfect score awaits… - Skipping Rocks: Embrace the calm and see how far you can skim stones across the water. - Bayou River Ride: Take a trip down the river and practice your shooting skills with targets (or alligators!). - Skateboarding: As well as using it to get around town, try out your skateboard skills against the clock.

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise isn't so bad that it's good, it's just average and technically rough.

A characterful, frequently charming sequel that doesn't quite match up to the original - and somehow performs worse.

A technical disaster in almost every conceivable way, which obscures not only the hilarious characters but the fact that the game is considerably less compelling and nuanced than the original.
