Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut Launches April 30th On PS3

Rising Star Games announced today that their critically acclaimed (and sometimes panned) suspense-horror, action-adventure title Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut will finally be released in North America on the PlayStation 3 and digitally on the PlayStation Network on April 30th for a very reasonable $39.99.

For those that missed out on the ultimate “love it, or hate it” game when it was released for the Xbox 360 in 2010, Deadly Premonition has players take on the role of Francis York Morgan as he investigates the murder of young woman in a small American town. To solve the Red Seed Murders, York must take on supernatural creatures, a cup of coffee, the letters “FK”, numerous side quests and mini games, and the killer during the course of his investigation.

In honor of the North American PlayStation 3 release, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut has received a complete graphical update with HD textures, and it features a completely reworked control system, mappable controls, and improved combat. It also includes a “surprising” new scenario from the game’s director Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro, and includes some downloadable content to “expand the mystery beyond the original game and let Agent York (and Zach) live it up in Greenvale.”

Oh, and the box art totally features Swery’s official director’s signature!

Rising Star also announced that anyone who pre-orders Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut from either Amazon or Gamestop will received some piece of mystery downloadable content that is “so plush, that Agent York will feel like their investigation in the small country town of Greenvale just turned into a vacation”. We are not exactly sure what that means, but consider us intrigued.
