LOS ANGELES - Oct 16, 2012 - Acclaimed publisher Rising Star Games Inc today announced that the cult phenomenon hit, Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut, will be released in the US and Europe Q1 2013 exclusively for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. High-definition graphics, fresh content and updated controls provide a whole new, outrageous gameplay experience for diehard fans and newcomers alike.
Playing as special agent Francis York Morgan (just call him York -- everyone else does), players must investigate the brutal murder of a young local beauty. Amidst the backdrop of soaring mountains and a small American town, York must solve the mystery of the Red Seed Murders and stay alive in a place where supernatural creatures and a killer seek to end his investigation.
The award-winning suspense-horror, action-adventure game gives players an open-world experience featuring detailed interactions with Greenvale locals, as well as numerous side quests and mini games to help solve the murders and uncover hidden town secrets.
"Love it or hate it, Deadly Premonition has been a phenomenon; 'cult' does not begin to do its success justice," said Martin Defries, President of Rising Star Games. "With the enhancements Swery and his team are making to this new PS3™ version, I am delighted to confirm Rising Star Games' involvement with this fantastic game that should engage fans new and old alike."

I'm writing some exciting new scenarios and adding some new features. All will be revealed over the coming months and I'm confident I can deliver an unforgettable experience for you all."
