Agent York (and Zach) has his work cut out for him in the upcoming sequel/prequel.
Agent York is making a comeback in Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise, the sequel to the cult classic by Hidetaka Suehiro aka Swery65. Venturing to the town of Le Carré, York looks into some strange murders that have been taking place in town. In a new trailer, Le Carré is laid out as this scenic rural town that’s quiet and cozy.
Activities like riding through the river and bowling are teased, as are locations like the Casa Pineapple and Alexus Bar ‘n’ Lane. However, there’s something sinister bubbling beneath the surface, especially with the voice calling out to Zach, York’s “imaginary friend.” How this ties into the “red tree” that FBI agent Aaliyah Davis must investigate remains to be seen.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is out on July 10th for the Nintendo Switch. Though York’s story takes place in 2005, several years before the events of the first game, Davis’ tale is set in 2019. So it’s both a sequel and prequel to the first game, as players go back and forth between both protagonists. Stay tuned for more details en route to launch.
