Deadly Premonition 2 baffles both Beantown and the bayou in July


Before and after

Fill the thermos with piping hot joe, we're in for some long summer nights. Come July, we're back on the case, trying to solve more bizarre serial murders that stretch across America and across time.

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is set for a July 10 launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch at a price of $50. The follow-up to 2010's legendary (and, uhh, divisive) Deadly Premonition, this entry acts as both a sequel and a prequel. The present-day story has FBI agent Aaliyah Davis hot on the trail of some murders in Boston. However, these are connected to killings committed in Louisianan town Le Carré 15 years ago. Familiar face special agent Francis York Morgan heads up that investigation.

The case-cracking goes with a side of sweet kickflips. Le Carré can be traversed while on skateboard, and customization includes "[upgrading] your skateboard for improved speed and landing more difficult tricks." There are mini-games too which include bowling, "bayou ride," and a skateboard challenge. Get hopped up on coffee and do a 900 Christ Air over the alligator pit.

For those who missed the reveal last September, Swery is prominently involved, serving as both the writer and director. With that key piece of information, you know what to expect: The unexpectable.
