Deadly Premonition 2, or Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise in full, is coming to Nintendo Switch On July 10.

Publisher Rising Star Games has shared the new release date via a trailer. The trailer starts as a cheap James Bond opening theme, only to turn batshit crazy right at the end, kind of like what you’d expect Deadly Premonition 2 to play out.

Deadly Premonition 2 takes place in both present-day Boston, Massachusetts, and past Le Carré, Louisiana. Thanks to some “unique storytelling,” we explore the memories of a former FBI agent to shed new light on the mystery of the Le Carré serial murders. This former agent is none other than Special Agent Francis York Morgan – coffee aficionado and the protagonist of the original Deadly Premonition.

In present-day Boston, we follow Agents Davis and Jones as they begin a new investigation into the Le Carré serial murders. They approach York for help, though he’s no longer working for the FBI for an unknown reason.

As we go back in time to the streets of Le Carré, we once again take on the role of York, as he unravels a brand-new murder mystery. We are free to roam the town as we see fit, either by foot or on a skateboard. Yes, a York rides a skateboard now – and you can even upgrade it to improve its speed and to land more complicated tricks.

While you’re not out and about solving murders on a skateboard, you can go for a Bayou Ride, Bowling, and other side activities. You can also customize York to look just how you like him.

Since we explore both the present and the past, Deadly Premonition 2 is both a sequel and a prequel to the original Deadly Premonition. The parts in Le Carré with Special Agent York take place before the murder in Greenvale, Washington. Perhaps we’ll learn more about Zack, the White Room, and the Red Tree.

The game is developed by Toybox with the help of White Owls, Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro’s new studio. SWERY directed the previous game and came back to design the sequel.

Deadly Premonition 2 is coming July 10. Those of you who enjoy weird mysteries with colorful characters are going to have quite a few options come summer 2020
