Deadly Premonition executive producer Yasuhiro Wada teased at GDC that they are working on an PS3 release of the game for the West WITH EXTRA CONTENT! I can’t wait to find out more at E3 2012!
The original game came out on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan, but, “We faced some challenges… We weren’t able to release the full experience” that was intended, he said. Because of this, the game “was not released on the PS3 in the West.”
Despite its weaknesses, he recognizes that the game has “developed a cult following.”
He said he hopes to announce that this will change — hinting at a new, enhanced version of the original game. “We’re working on a PS3 release. We still have a few hurdles to overcome, but hopefully we’ll be able to show you something at E3,” said Wada.
Joystiq got a little more information apparently this enhanced version will have move support and new “scenarios”
Immediately after ex-Marvelous CEO (and new Toybox Games founder) Yasuhiro Wada let slip news of a new Deadly Premonition PS3 project at GDC, he met with Joystiq for an interview and clarified just what it is. And it’s not a sequel.
Deadly Premonition is being “remastered” and updated for PS3, by a team headed by Swery65, working in concert with the two-man Toybox studio. The new version, which will be further detailed at E3, will include new content, including new “scenarios” — and support for the PlayStation Move. We’re sure the whole thing will make much more sense with motion controls.
