Deadly Premonition Origins, survival horror game launches on Switch

Aksys Games announced that Deadly Premonition Origins for the Nintendo Switch™ is now available at retail in North America in both a Collector’s Edition and a Standard Edition. Deadly Premonition Origins lets long-time fans and newcomers alike play the original cult classic survival-horror game ‘Deadly Premonition’ on the Nintendo Switch for the first time.

Directed by video game industry legend SWERY65 (‘D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die’, ‘The Good Life’), Deadly Premonition has the player guide FBI Special Agent Francis York Morgan around the rural town of Greenvale, Washington as he investigates the identity of the Raincoat Killer. Interact with a roster of eccentric, memorable characters, fight off peculiar paranormal forces, and stare into cups of coffee to solve the case in this legendarily off-the-wall title.

Joe DeVader of Nintendo World Report commented, “to put it bluntly, the characters in Deadly Premonition are probably some of the biggest weirdoes in video game history.”

Regularly regarded as an example of ‘games as art,’ Deadly Premonition holds the Guinness World Record for the most critically polarizing survival-horror game, cementing its status as a cult classic for the genre.

Deadly Premonition Origins is available now at retail for $39.99 for the Standard Edition and $49.99 for the Collector’s Edition. The game has been rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
