Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is coming to the Nintendo Switch and, at least for now, only the Nintendo Switch. For fans who started their journey with Agent Francis York Morgan on another platform that may be tough news to hear, but the comments from the game's publisher suggest a port to other consoles may be possible down the line.
In a statement to Push Square, Rising Star Games co-founder Brjánn Sigurgeirsson said that Deadly Premonition 2 is a "Switch exclusive at launch." This is in line with a video posted to Twitter by the game's director, Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro, that says the game is destined for the Switch "ONLY" (emphasis theirs).
But saying a game is an exclusive at launch is not the same as saying it will never come to another platform. Sigurgeirsson says that Rising Star are "not discussing other platforms at this time," but today's announcement of the sequel also marks the original Deadly Premonition's debut on a Nintendo platform. Granted, it's been 9 years since the game's original release, so hopefully an eventual port of the sequel wouldn't take nearly so long.
If you're not familiar with Deadly Premonition's bizarre, heavily "Twin Peaks"-inspired murder mystery, Rising Star released a Director's Cut version for the PC via Steam, Xbox 360 (now backwards compatible on the Xbox One), and PS3 in 2013. On the Switch, the game was just released as Deadly Premonition: Origins for $29.99 USD. You'll need a Switch next year if you want to experience Deadly Premonition 2's new story split between Boston and New Orleans, but there are multiple ways to see the odd, pine-ensconced town of Greenvale in the original.
