For those of you who don’t already know, Deadly Premonition is an open-world survival horror that has been receiving wildly mixed reviews from sites in the US. Having been described already as a “potential cult classic”, Rising Star Games yesterday confirmed that they had secured the rights to release the game in PAL territories (previously absent from their release schedule).
Originally entitled Rainy Woods, Deadly Premonition has been a long time coming and was originally shown at TGS 2007, although the critical response reacted the developers into making several changes to the artistic direction.
“Having seen how DP split reviewers’ opinions in America, gamers are itching to get their hands on it to judge it for themselves. We have high hopes for what can only be described as the most distinctive survival horror game that has ever been released” said Martin Defries, Managing Director at Rising Star Games.
Likely to draw some attention from gamers for the press it’s been getting, and the budget price it’ll hit our shelves, Deadly Premonition might be the dark horse from this year’s fall releases.
