Earlier in the month, we got the release of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise. The subtitle worked on several levels, considering how fans pretty much never expected to get a sequel to the bizarre cult classic. Unfortunately, it was plagued by technical issues (even more so than the first game, which was infamous for its lackluster performance), leading to some poor reception. Now, a new update is here to help address some of those issues, but we still got a ways to go.
Via his official Twitter, Director Swery announced that the first update for the game is live. Unfortunately, in sort of classic Swery fashion, there is no changelog available, though people on the official Reddit have mentioned that the framerate seems smoother, and that York’s skateboard conversations are no longer automatic and is something now to be triggered, along with some typo changes as well as a character’s misgendering being fixed.
The game’s performance is still pretty rough, but more updates are coming. So, keep your eyes open there. Deadly Premonition 2 is available now on the Switch, with update 1.0.2 live now.

Thank you very much for kind messages and great advices, and sorry I’m not able to reply to everything. The first patch is available now.
We are going to release the patch several times to continue improving. We’ll have the camera inversion too.#DeadlyPremonition2 #DP2 pic.twitter.com/veemtUBGGW
