Nintendo Direct: Deadly Premonition Launching On Switch Later Today

Get your spooks on the go with Deadly Premonition Origins.


Nintendo's 40-minute-long Direct presentation has officially wrapped up. Among the few surprise releases, including the newly-released Super Kirby Clash, the company revealed that Deadly Premonition hits the Nintendo Switch later today.

Re-released as Deadly Premonition Origins, the game launches on Nintendo Switch for $30 USD. In the open-world survival horror game, you guide FBI agent Francis York Morgan as he, and his mysterious friend Zach, set out to uncover the truth of a serial murder that occurs in the small North America town of Greenvale.

In our Deadly Premonition review, we said, "Deadly Premonition is not a lovely game, or a refined one. It's easy to dismiss it for its bad looks, its ancient control scheme, and its general user-unfriendliness. But this is a case in which the bigger picture dwarfs the flaws and the foibles. And Deadly Premonition is certainly different. It has its ups and downs, but the one direction you'll most associate with this flawed and unique game is sideways."

In other news from the Nintendo Direct, popular hero shooter Overwatch is set to arrive on Nintendo Switch next month. Banjo-Kazooie, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's third DLC character, joins the ever-growing roster later today. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Rogue sail onto Nintendo Switch in one bundle called Assassin's Creed: Rebel Collection. And one of the most beloved Star Wars games launches this month.
