Ignition and Marvelous are partnering again to publish Deadly Premonition in North America. The game puts you in the role of Francis York Morgan, a FBI agent investigating a grisly murder in a small town where supernatural creatures lurk.
Access Games is developing… wait a minute Deadly Premonition looks a lot like Rainy Woods which was also by Access Games and Marvelous.
On second thought, Deadly Premonition is Rainy Woods which Marvelous announced in 2007. Looks like it’s a new name for the reworked game. What’s interesting is Rainy Woods was originally a multiplatform title for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Deadly Premonition is only for the Xbox 360 and Ignition is bringing it here in March.
Interestingly, we haven’t heard any news about Rainy Woods in Japan and the special site Marvelous made to promote the game there is now gone.
