Nintendo really brought the fire for their Direct today. We saw various announcements, some expected and some less so. But things took a turn to the very unexpected, and the very weird, when it was announced that the Switch would get a sequel to the cult classic Deadly Premonition, as well as the original itself.

First up we got the sequel announcement of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise. Unfortunately, that’s about all we got from it outside a few brief scenes in the video. There was no mention of the original Director, Swery, but he confirmed via Twitter he will be writing and directing the sequel thankfully. So whatever it’ll end up being, it’s going to be quite the ride.

If you’re not familiar with the first game…well, it’s hard to describe. Despite some real janky gameplay, it might be a strong contender for the weirdest game in recent memory, with a bizarre storyline and meta-narrative heavily inspired by the works of filmmaker David Lynch. It was never released on a Nintendo console, until now. The game will launch today on the system as Deadly Premonition: Origins. If you want a physical copy, you’ll have to wait until November.

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise releases in 2020, and as of now only a Switch version has been announced. Deadly Premonition: Origins is available digitally as of today.
