Releasing on Switch this week, the sequel to the cult classic survival-horror game Deadly Premonition. Get ready to…ride a skateboard…?

I do worry that the sequel will end up trying too hard to be INTERNET GOOFY. It’s possible, now that the devs and folks involved have absorbed a decade of fan jokes, memes, and videos about the first game. I hope it all works out though. A new, strange and enjoyable Deadly Premonition game might be one of the few bright spots of 2020.

  • ATLUS’ Catherine Full Body comes out for Nintendo Switch tomorrow and even though it was revealed at the start of the New Game Plus Expo last month despite ATLUS showing both Catherine Full Body which comes out for Nintendo Switch tomorrow and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim coming out for PS4 on September 8 later this year.
    Catherine Full Body coming out for Nintendo Switch tomorrow is definitely a good start for ATLUS while Persona producer and director of Studio Zero Katsura Hashino continues his work on bringing ATLUS and Koei Tecmo’s Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers on PS4 and Nintendo Switch hopefully to the West very soon.
    I do hope ATLUS will continue their development for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V game on the Nintendo Switch which I’m hoping will be called Persona 5 because I really want to see what it’s like becoming a phantom thief while awakening a Persona.
    I’m excited for Catherine Full Body and will be playing it when it comes out for Nintendo Switch tomorrow because I’m going to find out whether love really is over or not for 32 year old Vincent Brooks who not only likes to drink out at the Stray Sheep bar in the evening but he isn’t sleeping so soundly at night when he starts to have horrifying nightmares that force him to climb puzzling blocks in order for him to survive another night and then wake up next morning.
    And finally a big shout out to Troy Baker Laura Bailey and the rest of the cast for providing their in game voice acting.
    Fantastic work ATLUS on porting Catherine Full Body to the Nintendo Switch and I can’t wait to play Catherine Full Body when it comes out for Nintendo Switch tomorrow and that I’m going to get all the in-game content included in Catherine Full Body.
