Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut Is $40, Gives Agent York DLC Suits

By Spencer . April 19, 2013 . 12:30pm


Rising Star Games is re-releasing Deadly Premonition with extra content like a new opening movie and also a new ending. Access Games made tweaks to Deadly Premonition for The Director’s Cut like an expanding the mini-map and giving players an option to remap all of the controls.


Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is slated for release on April 30. GameStop is giving away an Espresso Suit that increases Agent York’s resistance to tiredness and hunger by three so you can spend more time exploring Greenvale and less time eating. Amazon has a Field Ops suit that boosts York’s attack and defense. I’d say the Espresso Suit is probably more useful since Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut only has one difficulty setting and Swery told Siliconera the game will be easier on PS3.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut will retail for $39.99 in North America. We actually talked to Swery about the price of the original release, which was $20 here, but released as a full price game in Japan. Check out our interview where Swery reveals that originally the protagonist was female, modeled after either Natalie Portman or Jodie Foster.

    Grabbing this off of PSN so that it’s permanently fused with my system.

  • Solomon_Kano

    $40? Nice.

    Agent York ought to be a model. I mean, look at that expresso ad! I almost want to get an instant coffee right now.

  • Hork

    Exclusive DLC? Now I have to buy the game used three months from now. What a shame.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I understand having principles, but you’re skipping supporting the developer over some exclusive costumes?

      • Hork

        I don’t support exclusive preorder DLC. I don’t support the preorder-focus in the game industry at all. Ever. No compromise. Developers get to choose between participating in the cancerous preorder circlejerk or the financial support of intelligent human beings. They don’t get both.

        • Repede91

          Couldn’t you just purchase the game when it releases without preordering?

          • Testsubject909

            Maybe because it too conveniently fixes his/her issue of standing up against pre-order while simultaneously enabling him/her to support a dev worthy of support?

        • Solomon_Kano

          You could always just not pre-order and prove your point just as well. Implying that people who buy into the pre-order stuff are somehow less intelligent though…

          • ShadowDivz

            They are less intelligent. Why the hell would i want my loyalty rewaded? I mean im going to pre-order a game to ensure i get my copy, and those bastard developpers actually want to give me free stuff for that?!Where the hell do they get the nerve to pull crap like this?!

            …… Some people, i swear to god. *facepalms

          If it is cancer, it is very, very long term. There were places you could get on a list to hold games for the 2600. During the days of single print, small number runs for the Saturn and PS1 it was far more ‘reserve or don’t see it’ than folks think things are today. The days of that $5 NOT going towards the purchase price are long, long gone. There are still places which don’t require any money down. This is basically what you are doing any time an order is placed with AMZN before the game is released.

          The process allows retailers to know how many copies they should provide specific locations and publishers an idea of initial week sales. Long as Gamestop doesn’t sell too deeply into those preorders, it gives someone a guarantee they will get the product. They can also use it as pay ahead layaway. What exactly is unintelligent about any step of that process?

          • ShadowDivz

            It’s unintelligent because you get free stuff in the process.
            Nobody should be rewarded for their loyalty, business 101: treat your customers like garbage.
            AMIRITE CAPCOM?! xD
            Seriously though, he could just NOT use the friggin costume and give it to someone random joe on the internet. I think people just need a reason to feel like heroes or something.

        • Göran Isacson

          Now I am kinda curious- would you have supported it if it was DLC released after the games release, and it’s just that it’s pre-order DLC that makes you angry, or is it that the DLC in question is kinda barebones?

          • Deor

            I’m just a bit tired of having pre-orders that are “exclusive” to one place. I mean, either give both suits or none.

            We don’t have Amazon where I live. So I would have to import the game to get the pre-order bonus. That’s just a backwards way of doing things.

    • Buy it from the PSN store and get all the DLC + support the developer at the same time.

    • Whitney Chavis

      I asked at the last press event. The DLC will be available for purchase on PSN too after the release so it’s not “exclusive” only to pre-orders. You won’t miss out on anything ordering 3 months later it’s just that a particular DLC pack just won’t be “free”

    • SiliconNooB

      Preorder DLC is the reason that I won’t be double-dipping on RE: Revelations HD on day 1 [and won’t get it until I can grab it for $20].

      It really is grasping and pathetic.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    The Espresso suit is included when pre-ordering at GAME in the UK but for some reason I can’t make a £5 deposit at the moment. I’m not in college on Fridays but I want to be able to make a deposit so it’ll there for me when I get back the Monday after, which will be my birthday.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    I can’t wait to play this in Move and 3D :D
