“The game will now be in full HD,” Suehiro said in a blog post. “Other things have been changed as well, such as the player controls.
“It’s very easy to control now, so even people who didn’t play the original should have no doubts about taking the plunge this time.”
Other new elements include additional scenarios an PlayStation Move support. Players who’ve completed the game before will find “plenty of new stuff” to enjoy, said Suehiro.
“In any case, we tried to create this Director’s Cut in such a way that the appearance of the game world would be maintained, while also being accessible to newcomers and old fans.”
He continued, “I’ve been especially picky about pouring the thoughts and feelings I’ve experienced since the release of the original into this game in such a way that it really makes you feel that 2 years have passed since then.
“I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether I succeeded or failed.”
Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut will be released worldwide next year, “starting in Europe,” according to Suehiro. Stay tuned for future updates.
