Numskull is set to release a physical version of Deadly Premonition: Origins on Nintendo Switch in Europe and Australia, so I got in touch to talk about this and other releases. Come check it out!
PS4B: Good morning! Thank you for joining us for this feature. Could you help us get started by telling our readers a bit about yourself and your work?
Hi, thanks for having me, it’s always fun to talk about our titles! Absolutely – I’m Ryan, the PR and Communications Manager for Numskull. We create official video game, movie, and TV show merchandise through our Numskull Designs label, and more recently, we publish video games for consoles and PC through our Numskull Games label.
PS4B: After seeing on the September Nintendo Direct that Deadly Premonition 2 is on its way to the Nintendo Switch, we learned that the original would also launch on Nintendo’s hybrid console as Deadly Premonition: Origins. What can we expect from this new version of the cult classic?
We’re incredibly proud to be breathing new life into Deadly Premonition! We’re bringing the original cult classic to the Nintendo Switch as Deadly Premonition: Origins, which retains all of the original game’s quirkiness and awesomeness – and, of course, with handheld compatibility for the first time!
PS4B: On that note, Numskull is doing a standard and a Collector’s Edition for Deadly Premonition: Origins that will be releasing in Europe and Australia this November. With information on the Collector’s Edition will be shared at a later date… blink once if we can expect to receive unexpected items with our Collector’s Edition to match the quirkiness of Deadly Premonition.
The Collector’s Edition will release alongside our standard physical edition of the game in November and comes packaged with a pretty cool pin badge set, housed in its own display box. It’s great to finally have this genuine cult classic in physical form on a Nintendo platform!
PS4B: Odds are good for also getting a physical release from Numskull for Deadly Premonition 2 on Nintendo Switch, right?
Unfortunately, we’re not handling publishing duties of Deadly Premonition 2, so that’d be one to ask Rising Star Games!
PS4B: You’ve already released Horizon Chase Turbo and Crystar, to name a couple of examples. With AI: The Somnium Files and YU-NO right around the corner, I was wondering if there are plans for other releases for November and December on PS4 and Nintendo Switch that we haven’t heard about, so that we can ready our wallets.
We have a few more titles planned for our 2019 line-up that we’ll be sure to talk about soon enough!
PS4B: And that’s all the time we have for today. Is there something else you’d like to add before we go?
Thanks for the interview!
