Deadly Premonition not coming to Australia

Recommended Videos

Dear Australia,

I am sorry.

While North America and Japan revel in the pure joy that is playing Deadly Premonition (from here on referred to as the greatest game ever made) and Europe only has to ring their hands in frustration until this Fall you will never, ever, ever, never get to play the greatest game ever made (unless you import, of course). The game’s developer, Rising Star Games, admitted, after a brief flurry of rumors that the game was denied classification, that they never even submitted it to be be classified.

In a statement sent to Australian Gamer they said, “As part of our normal procedures in submitting any game for classification, it was determined internally at Rising Star Games that the game would not satisfy the criteria for an MA15+ rating in Australia and further that any changes to the game would not be possible. It was therefore decided, with regret, the game will not be released in Australia.”

I can hear your wailing from my chair in front of my TV as I play the greatest game ever made, Australia. A single tear is rolling down my eye. It’s so sad, Zach.

Sincerely,

Matt
