The first Deadly Premonition 2 patch has arrived, and it seems like it is starting to address some of the more major issues people have had with the Nintendo Switch game. In addition to bug fixes, Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro confirmed that this patch addresses the transgender character depiction issue and begins to work on the game’s frame rates.
Rather than share Deadly Premonition 2 patch notes, Swery took to Twitter with a personal note that went over some of the things that have been changed. to be specific, he noted the scenario “has been fixed.” He also mentioned this starts to work on the frame rate, which will continue to be addressed.
Here’s Swery’s full statement.
Dear DP2 fans,
Dev team, publisher and the sanity check team worked so hard that we were able to release the 1st patch.
The scenario where the problem occurred has been fixed. I didn’t change the important point of the story of this work, and I was able to make changes only where I wanted to make corrections.
Therefore, I am confident that fans who were worried that “this fix may change the essence of the game” will be reassured.
Of course we also fixed bugs/glitches that we knew.
Regarding frame rate improvement, we plan to gradually improve it. This patch is only partially fixing of frame rate, but we are preparing the next patch after this, ASAP. Please expect and wait.
I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to urgent patching and to the fans who support Deadly Premonition.
I love you all!
Deadly Premonition 2 is available for the Nintendo Switch.
